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.

  • Instructions on Dome and Floor from Pompeii Plans

    Just starting to understand the Instructions pls bear with us.

    With reference to the Section on "Brick Cookling Floor", it is stated that a round refractory floor is more efficient in saving fuel as the doom wall is sitted on the insulating hearth. Since we will be following the Pompeii brick oven plan, both the dome and cooking floor are made of firebricks where the dome wall sits atop the cooking floor. Now, is it adviceable to cut the bricks of the cooking floor to shape it round so that the dome wall sits on the insulating hearth not on top of the cooking floor as the plan envisage ?

    Also kindly advice us how much thickness is necessary for the thin layer of sand and fireclay under the cooking floor with 36" 0r 41" diameter cooking floor.

    Thanks.

    Some people have cut the floor round to match the dome. This isn't necessary, unless you are finishing the dome as an igloo, and need the space for insultion. It isn't visible in the finished project. I'd cut any bricks in half where less than half is needed, so you have them for dome construction.

    The main purpose of this layer is to smooth any irregularities in the slab, so your floor will be perfectly flat. Any amount will do, half an inch is just about right.
