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.

  • Insulating boards for a 42" Pompeii . . .

    How many of the FB insulating boards do you need for a Pompeii style oven?

    The boards are 24x36 - so I suspect I'll need 3. Is that correct?

    How many of the blankets do you need to cover the oven?

    Thx.

    Hi Cheesesteak,

    I ordered 3 for a 42" Pompeii I'm building in Sacto. I'll let you know how they measure up. The consensus here in FB Forum is that 3 should be enough for a 42". As for FB blankets, some say 2, others say 3. I'm not sure how many I'll order. More on that later. Post pics of your build!!!

    Glad to see another NorCal builder about to start!

      Aceves -
      I ended up ordering 3 boards and 3 blankets - they all arrived yesterday. I'm going to start cutting bricks this weekend - we'll see how it goes. I've got a thread in the Pompeii forum for my build.

      Where in Sac are you?

        Hi Cheesesteak,

        In Natomas. I'll be cutting bricks this weekend as well! Good luck and have fun! I hear that it might rain Sunday. All I want is a complete sunny weekend!

          Are you posting pics of your build?

          Where did you get your fire bricks? I've got a bunch of HC Muddox left over from a fire pit that I'm using. I think I'm going to make a run to Silverado Building materials for more - they've got fireclay as well.

          Good luck with the build . . .

            Hi Cheesesteak,

            Yes, I've got a build thread:

            http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f6/c...area-5008.html

            My build is taking a while because multiple other projects came up and had to be completed before the WFO. But now I'm back on the build!

            I got my firebricks from HC Muddox. I asked abuot their "seconds" and they hooked me up at $0.30 a brick!! Like I stated in my thread, I don't mind the discoloration, blemishes and dents of the bricks, as they will be inside the dome. All other materials I'll be getting at HD. HD carries HC Muddox fireclay.
