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.

  • 3/4 block for base walls

    In an effort to reduce building costs I have located a salvage yard and they have 3/4 concrete block for $0.60 each. Can you build the base walls out of these blocks? I have also fould a brickyard selling fire bricks at $0.95 each is this the normal cost and does this sound like the proper grade.
    What is the avg brick count for a 36" oven?

    Re: 3/4 block for base walls

    3/4 blocks are plenty strong if you are going to lay them up with mortar. My concern is that if you are going to dry-lay them the holes in the small blocks won't be big enough to fill with concrete and rebar, and that they won't have as wide a stance to keep them square and upright. If they are from a salvage yard make sure they match: I used freebie blocks from craigslist, and they had all different hole patterns.

    Firebricks from a brickyard at .95 usd sounds perfect.

    I did a full CAD workout of the 36 pompeii:

    and I came up with 171 bricks. You can look at images of the layers there and count them yourself.
