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.

  • Cement fire Bricks??? Help!!!!

    Hi there
    I am getting to the end of the second hand hunt for fire bricks, the first clay bricks I got I was informed were crap, then I had some old clay bricks that had holes but these are no good, not can some one help with this latest edition of bricks (I am going to own a brick yard soon), it came from a chimney so I am hoping it will be ok, however I noticed on two bricks had some pitting.....not sure how old they are but they are very heavy for a little brick. they are a concrete mix i am gathering.
    Please see attached photo.
    Looking forward to your responses

    Yup, defo concrete and no good for a pizza oven, might be good to add mass, but a real no no where fire is concerned as they will spall and explode under high temps.

        I am in Rotorua. What kind of brick did you use? I would appreciate any assistance.

        Regards

          The company here in Auckland is Certec. They actually make an oven that they sell as a kit but I opted to buy some of their "Seconds" refractory bricks.
          Welcome to Certec
          I think I paid about $5 each. Then I picked up 80 fire bricks locally on trade me for a couple of bucks each.
          I still have about 25 left so my dome (800mm ish across the base) must have only used about 60 bricks excluding the base.

              Yeh I know, things are tough here, well easy to source if you have the cash, but unfortunately I have a cap on my build. I have managed to source some second hand fire bricks for $4.00 each, however I have to drive about 2.5 hours each way to get them. the best locally is $6.50 each.
              Will keep posted about the build.
              Cheers
              Kriso.
              PS did you manage to have a look at the monier website for the Pompeii pavers?
