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.

  • Loose perlite on floor.

    Hi everyone, i was wondering can i put loose perlite on the floor and then an inch of a cob mixture as a support for the bricks?
    The dome will be supported from the concreat-perlite slab, not from the loose perlite.
    Does anyone used Stone Wool Boards on the hearth?

    You can use loose perlite under your floor bricks, however if you then intend to cover this with a clay mixture you will end up with quite a mess as the wet clay mix will pick up the dry perlite. If you already have a vermicrete slab to work over it is easier to use a dry mix of 50/50 sand, clay to bed the floor bricks into.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      I think i'll just put a 5:1 perlite with cement under the floor and 2 cm sand for leveling.
      Is it ok to make the dome an oval shape such as, 65 cm on the middle and 80 cm on the windth, i have already done my slab and i'ts 1,20 X 1,40, stupid me to make is so small...anyway i need at least an 80 cm oven and the widest point of the circle i'ts not enough space for the rockwool(5cm) and the loose perlite(10cm) that i will fill the closer with.
      it's 131 cm with the width of the firebricks that will make the dome...seems i'm 11 cm sort!xaxaxaxa!
