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.

    Greetings Brothers and Sisters,

    I am having some issues in regards to the dome. We made a wooden support structure that took up about 1/3 of the oven to help lay the brick to form the dome. We used a 10:10:1 sand,clay,portland and let it dry with a kerosene heater for about 1 week (our weather is about 30-40 degrees this whole winter) until we removed the support structure. When we removed the wooden support structure part of the dome shifted and cracked. We found it much too loose and easily pryed it apart with our hands very easily. For your information this oven is on a mobile truck and will be stressed. We are thinking a dome made of brick and motar probably isnt the best option. Do you think casting the dome would be best and strongest for our application"? If so can we cast a 3-4" dome using your refractory motar recipes? Can we use some remesh to reinforce the dome? Or will it expand and contract too much for metal reinforcement? And will it adhere easily to the walls which are made out of firebricks? Thanks for your comments

    Regards,

    Blare
Working...
