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.

    Hi All

    Will be getting a pre-cast dome shaped oven. The total size is 960mm diameter for the dome oven section. The oven with entrance area will be 1300mm long.
    If i do the suggested 4inch vermiculite/cement insulation, how many bags of vermiculite would i be needing? Roughly?
    The bags are 100ltr but ive never used it before so am trying to get an idea whether i should be pricing up 2 bags or 50!

    Well, if the supporting slab is 1300 x 1300 that is 130cm x130 cm x10 cm = 169 litres
    Two bags should do.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      2 x 100 litres did roughly the same area for me..

      never hurts to get a bit extra, use the leftovers for gardens.. works great to retain water.

        It does compress a bit, get a bit more than you calculate you need. Note that the vermicrete insulation layer should only be under the footprint of your oven and not over the entire suspended slab. It should definitely not communicate with the weather as it would then be a source of water infiltration.

        Be sure to mix it gently by hand to avoid breaking down the individual particles.
