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.

  • ? about FB plans? foundation size

    I'm just getting started building forms for foundation slab for 42" Pompeii. On page 13 plans call for 73" x 86" foundation and a 65" x 78" block stand but on page 66 plans are for 80" x 94" foundation and a 72" x 84" block stand. 42" interior diameter plus 4.5" of brick on both sides of dome = 51" plus 3" of insulation on both sides = 57" leaves 8" for framing/finishing. Right??? why larger stand?

    42" interior diameter plus 4.5" of brick on both sides of dome = 51" plus 3" of insulation on both sides = 57"

    As long as you know these dimensions you can calculate the footprint needed for your enclosure and insulation 'fill' that goes between the enclosure and dome insulation.

    Good luck with your build. Post some pics when you can.

      I had the same problems with the stand. It all depends on how you are going to finish the oven. Look at the other posts with a 42" oven and count the concrete blocks. Draw it all out and build a mock up on paper or cardboard. The more prep you do the less you might mess up. Good luck.

        Unfortunately, I noticed this *after* I had set my foundation and block wall, so I figure my enclosure will be pretty tight to the oven on the sides. I plan on doing a 4" block wall enclosure, with a stone veneer, so nothing will burn. I should have 1/2" clearance from the insuluation on the sides.

        If you plan on dry stacking your blocks, I suggest you try what I did and glue them together with PL500 polyurethane construction adhesive. It sets real quick and will make sure the blocks can't move while you are filling the cores. Any excess trims off real easy. I think I used one large tube for my whole stand.
