Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.


To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Vent Placement for Lintle opening

    How did people place the vent for the chimney when they had a lintle opening and a decorative arch? By that I mean did you do a row of arched bricks, an opening in the bricks, and then another row of bricks or did you leave an opening immediatly after the dome then start on the arch?

    Thanks!

    Amber - I went with an arch, opening, then arch.

      God yours is good! Did you shim the chimney up around the sides, to keep it from moving?

        Amber - if you go to my thread (Les' Build), page 3 link #146. You can see what I did to support the chimney.

            I built mine from the dome out towards the front. I left the bricks run long at the inner arch so they could key in with the outer arch. I then faced the outer arch with the decorative arch and let it hang down about 3/4 of an inch to encourage smoke to go up the chimney vs. out. It seems to work well.










            As you can clearly see - my brick cutting and cleanliness is not quite up to par with Les.

              Well, honestly, whose is? Looks great, though, and as long as the pizza tastes good! Thanks for the visuals.

                Also - you can't see from the pics. The inner arch bricks are notched so that they go under the dome arch and support it. I packed the tails of the inner arch bricks with refrax (refmix) so that I was sure the arch supported the dome opening.

                BTW - thanks for the kind words!
