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.

  • "Firerock" refractory mortar

    I saw a bag of this at the local builders supply, it is used on the Firerock brand cast fireplaces to mortar the modular units together. Can I use this for a pompeii oven or has anyone used this? I am on the east coast so ordering from FB is not an option.

    Re: "Firerock" refractory mortar

    So far I have only good things to say about Firerock, other than the price. I used it on my dome. At least on the interior of the dome. I tuck pointed any of the exterior joints that did not fill completely when laying the brick. My brick fit pretty snug to the inside but had fairly large joints to the outside. For tuck pointing, I used a 50/50 mix of Firerock and "home brew".

    I later used 100% homebrew for my entry and flu. So far, no cracks in the dome, entry or flu. Firerock is easy to work with and will allow minimumal time for adjustment. However, if I had it to do over again, I would use hombrew from start to finish. It is cheap, and only a little more difficult to work with. Whether it be Firerock or homebrew, begin by mixing very small amounts. When you get the hang of it you will know how much mortar to mix per brick/per laying/per setting time.
    I don't care what folks say behind my back........They are either braggin' or.......lyin'

      Thanks for the reply. I am hoping to start on my base this weekend, as I finished the foundation pour last weekend. Curing for 5-6 days should be enough as the night temps have not been below 35 F. You're home brew recipe is the same as the FB thread I found?

        Your welocome Fabby,
        FB is where I got my formula for "home brew" I really don't think of it as mine. I conscider it as sort of community property .
