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.

  • Clay for making bricks good for FireClay

    Will clay used for making bricks serve well as FireClay? I live withing 30 kilometers of the oldest brick kilns in the Americas started by the Spanish 450 years ago. They are still making them exactly the same way today they did then. I hope those solid clay bricks will serve me well in building my oven but there isn't a home depot in this country and I do not know exactly what fire clay is. Thanks in advance.

    See if the brick kilns can supply you with crushed fired clay bricks or the dust from cutting them.

      Fire clay is a rather confusing name. It can be a completely different product depending on what industry is using it. For building an oven, for the temperatures we fire to, I think any powdered clay will suffice.
      Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

        Those brick should be fine for your oven. I think the clay will work also, but try to get some lime in the mix as well.
        The cost of living continues to skyrocket, and yet it remains a popular choice.
