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.

    Help!

    I am planning to build my WFO after years of promising my wife her outdoor kitchen. My biggest problem is sourcing the following key materials:

    *Refractory Cement
    *Firebricks
    *Vermiculite


    Regular Portland Cement is manufactured locally and imported slag cement is available. Can I use either, because importing any special cement is a bureaucratic nightmare...

    I have access to many, many red and yellow clay bricks that were part of old sugar factories around Montego Bay. Some of them come directly from the chimney of an old sugar boiler. Can these bricks be used in the high temperatures in the WFO? Many similar bricks are actually in use in open hearth grills and seem to perform without much trouble - then again, they are not holding the heat like a WFO.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, I am in construction so am familiar with most technical issues that this project entails.
Working...
