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.

  • Brick size

    Ok, I am ready to pick up my brick.
    The instructions show two sizes of brick. I have found a 9 x 2 1/4 x 4 and an
    8 3/4 x 2 1/2 x 4 1/4.
    The nine inch will give me a slightly thicher dome. Does it really make any difference which brick size I use?
    I am leaning towards the full 9" brick with the slightly smaller width and thickness, it should make the dome curves a little easier to achieve with the smaller measurements of the width and thickness.
    Also, most of the pictures I have seen on this site use a fire brick for the vent arch. The materials list says common bricks. I am thinking I should use firebricks because the heat at that area will still be very high. Thanks.

    Are you sure on the size of the smaller brick? As given, that is not modular.

      The measurements are two different suppliers within range of my home.
      I am going with the 9 x 2 1/4 x 4 . They may be 1/4 more or less but thats what the salesman told me on the phone.

        From what I read up, most firebricks are 9 x 4.5. That way you can do herringbone and other layouts with good overlay.

          I did not think of that, if its really only 4" as the salesman said then I cant make the herringbone floor as I need to do. Unless I cut the length and I dont want to have to do that.
