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 with my Masonry BBQ Project

    I've been looking at the prefab BBQ's here and between the prices and quality I 'm now thinking about building my own version of one for open hearth cooking and for my paellas.

    I'm thinking about doing a large (1 meter +/-) open work surface against a concrete wall. I talked with a friend about using firebrick on the wall and he suggested I should use a ceramic tile for the back wall surface so it could be cleaned. (are there special tiles for this?)

    Here's my current thinking....

    Concrete blocks for the base, keeping it about thigh high.
    Build in a central ash repository under a steel plate..... so I can sweep hot or cold ashes into a central pit and clean it out later.
    Put a firebrick layer on the flat hearth surface.
    Put a second firebrick layer around the hearth edge for ash control.
    Put firebrick or tile on the back surface of the wall.
    Use a Tuscan Grill setup for BBQ foods and a paella stand for my rices.
    Heat and eat....

    Should I also include sides and/or a chimney? I was going to go without them to make the paellas easier....

    Does anyone have pictures, plans or other ideas for such a project?

    If you have one, post a picture for me, THANKS!!
