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.

  • Barrel vault oven building questions

    We are building a barrel vault oven with a hearth made of high density fire bricks 700 x 700. We arent using any mortar between the hearth bricks or the insulation brick layer. Our outer dimensions of the oven are 950mm od width. The height of the oven arch is 490mm and the opening which is built onto the oven is 360mm h x 460mm w.

    The hearth will be laid on a base of c3 reflective bricks. The walls and arch will be made using tapered fire bricks so we wont be using any mortar. On top of this we are using 50ml thick kaowool, then we plan to render.

    At this stage we have laid the foundation slab and built the base using bessa bricks. On top of this we have formed a 4" thick concrete slab to hold the oven.

    My question is basically whether or not these are correct dimensions for a good pizza/bread oven and if we have enough insulation. Is there any thing that we are missing?

    Thanks in advance
