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.

    I am in the Roanoke area and starting a build. Can anyone direct me to suppliers in the area? The local block and stone company quoted me $1.40 for a standard sized fire brick, but so far I don't have any details. I assume this is a light duty brick. What should I ask them?

    tedzap,

    I am up in Harrisonburg. Monger Lumber (R S Monger and Sons) has low duty firebrick from Superior Clay, around 26 percent Alumina if I remember right, for about $1.10 per brick. I have checked over most of the state and Monger's is the cheapest so far. It is nice they are only 20min from my house. A building supplier 5 min from Monger's wanted $1.84 for the exact same brick.

    I talked with the Harbison-Walker dealer in Salem. They have med. duty bricks but they were way more expensive. Most people I have seen on here are getting along just fine with the low duty bricks so I will be using those when I begin this spring.

    Good luck with your build.

      I'm just south west of you. I used Harbison-Walker they are a bit pricy but I compared the brick side by side with other places and for me the quality made the price worth it for me. I'm about an hour from you if you want to check out my oven just let me know.
