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.

  • Fire Clay in Central Virginia.

    I have located some heatstop 50 locally but don't know where to get fireclay. nobody seems to have it. I'm half tempted to just dig some red clay out of the ground, let it dry then powder it up. any suggestions on where I find the stuff?

    Fireclay can usually be found at Masonry suppliers or Pottery suppliers. It also is called Mortar clay- same stuff. I paid $8 for a 25 lb bag.

      You can see if there's a Harbison Walker supplier in your area- the one in Roanoke had fireclay available if I needed it. I used heatstop 50 to start with and finished up with the dried clay I dug out of my saw reservoir.

        I wanted to update this so anyone else looking knows where to find the fireclay. I thought I had put this up once before, but I got it at a Campbells Ceramic Supply store in Richmond, right next to the racetrack. Thanks to everyone for pointing me in the right direction.

          In Australia Fire clay from building suppliers is usually not a true refractory clay and is now often marketed by the more appropriate name "Bricklayers Clay" to avoid the confusion. I suspect that it will probably still be suitable, but if you want the real fire clay get it from a refractory supplier. Don't know what the situation is in other countries.

            Hey WoodchuckDad,
            Where did you source your Heatstop 50 from? I'm west of you in Waynesboro and can't seem to find a source under $80/ bag

                Thanks! I'll give them a call. Trying to gather everything I need as I start to build by block stand. Just read through your build, congrats on building such a great oven!
