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.

  • Stucco Thickness

    How thick should the stucco be if I'm only using the insulating blanket? Also, approximately how long does it take to dry OR how long should I wait before using the oven again.

    Thanks!

    Amber,

    Are you going to add vermiculite/portland over the blanket? That is what I did so my stucco (2 applications) probably ended up around an inch thick. If you are just going to cover the blanket with wire, then stucco, one inch would probably work just as well.

      Thanks Les, you're an American hero. I'm going to do blanket and chicken wire. I got the full 100 sq ft that the plans reccomended. It may be a bit more expensive, but I'm hoping it pays off in the end... any ideas on curing time/time before use?

        Thats a tough one. I would think that after the insulation, you are pretty much good to go. The temps are going to be way less than what the bricks see. I recommend using an acrylic - the stuff is bullet proof. And if it's only an inch thick - it should set pretty fast. Someone here must have been down this road, hopefully they will give some input as well.

            Absolutely - I may have been there myself. You are doing a fantastic job - no worries here.

                I was just reading your post's on "overnight proofing". You can cook as well as build? I have a new hero!

                  I'm multi-talented. Cooking is just another form of self-sufficiency.

                    Hey Amber, I think I'd put at least a little bit of vermicrete over the chicken wire before stuccoing. It's hard to get the stucco to behave on chicken wire directly over blanket. Too flexible. The vermicrete has a different texture when you're applying it and if you put it on in layers, bottom to top, it's more easily applied. Once it's dried, you can stucco away with no trouble. I have close to 4 inches (I sort of went by my hand's width) on mine, even with 2 layers of blanket. Insulation overkill, but that's good by me!

                    To get your chicken wire to conform better to your oven shape, use needle nose pliers to twist it in the places where it's buckling up. That tightened mine right up!

                      Thanks Elizabeth, that's very helpful. I can't wait for it to be warm AND dry enough to actually do it!
