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.

    Hi everybody...

    Thanks so much for all the useful information!

    I was able to find some cheap 20x20x9 cm (7 3/4 x 7 3/4 x 3 1/2 in) firebricks. I was wondering if for the dome, I should cut them in half twice, creating four 3 7/8 x 3 7/8 x 3 1/2 inch pieces from each brick, thus making each chain 3 7/8" tall; or just use whole bricks making each chain 7 3/4" tall.

    Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly apperciated...

    Hi Santi,
    it would depend on the oven size that you intend to build.
    If you were planning a larger, 42" or larger, I would use the full brick height on edge but a smaller oven will need significant cutting to get a nice clean smooth line for your oven interior.. Maybe for your soldier course use full bricks on edge, then the next 2 courses, use half bricks and then your planned 1/4 bricks from then to the top.

      Hi Neill,

      I'm planning to build a 48" oven (we love our whole pigs in South America!)... Would you still recommend the same layout: whole height for soldiers, half for two courses, ant fourths for the rest?

      Thanks again!
