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.

  • Build using foam form

    I've read quite a few build threads and they were all done without forms. I found one build with foam forms, but would like to see more. So I appreciate any links.

    The main reason I want to use forms is my desire to finish the oven as soon as possible so we can use it during the summer.

    Thanks,
    Nate

    Using sand is quite a simpl way to create a form. To save on sand you can stack a few polystyrene boxes upside down in there first.shovel the sand out when done.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      I've done the sand form half way up.
      Have you also considered using an excercise ball (as a form). I've seen a friend do this for a weekend dome build, just got to get the right size.
      Cheers

        Hi Nate,
        you really don't need forms for most of your Pompeii dome, only the last 3 or 4 courses.
        I built my entire dome in a single week end (and it was raining as well), the first 4 or 5 courses (I need to check out my own build 4 years ago to get the exact details and review the pictures as I comprehensively captured the build on this very forum) one day with only a piece of 3/4" construction ply cut to a half a semicircle. Next day, I cut the hearth bricks, installed them inside the standing soldier course, constructed a raised sand dome, finished the last courses, installed the keystones, removed the form and immediately stood on top of the dome. A brave move but it had to prove it's strength. I then climbed inside (well wriggled in on my back with my arms in first with a light) and cleaned and aligned the wet poor mans mortar from the face.
        So you can build one in a really short time if you try
        Check out my build to see my progress and check out the dates that the postings were loaded.
        Cheers,

        Neill
