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.

  • Kaolin vs. Fireclay

    Kaolin is readily available and inexpensive at my local farm supply store. It appears to be chemically equivalent to fireclay (aluminum silicate) and is the primary ingredient for porcelin. Could kaolin be substituted for fireclay in the mortar mix. I've used kaolin as a pond sealer - get it wet and it sure is gooey stuff. Should make a very smooth high temp mortar??

    Re: Kaolin vs. Fireclay

    Probably is ok. It is more expensive for us in Australia. Another name for kaolin is china clay. Check its shrinkage properties. It might have a higher shrinkage rate than fireclay. All clays shrink and this can either be a disadvantage or advantage depending what you want the stuff to do. I use kaolin sometimes because it's white and sometimes because it helps improve my slipcasting mixtures.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
