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.

  • oven floor insulation with rockwool

    Hi,
    I would like to use a rockwool hard board under the floor of the oven for insulation, not sure if it can withstand the heat cycels and weight of the oven.
    the plan is to use it insted of the ceramik board.
    what do you think?

      Hi Al,
      The board is with density of 80kg\m and 5 cm thick.
      Yesterday I did a "test" for the board and placed on it the floor tiels to see hwo it will behave with the weight. it was like a hard coshion, so im not sure if it will be possible to level the floor.
      Still remains the major issue - that im not sure if it will withstand the weight and will not collapse or crumble during time.

      That is why i'm thinking of changing my original plan and use a vermiculite concrete as the insulation layr under the floor. ( as I see is recomended everywhere)

      since this is a change of plans I will have room for only 6.5 cm of the vermiculite concrete layer.
      1. do you think it will be strong enogh in that thickness?
      2. do you think it will be a good inulation ?

      Thanks.

        If there is any doubt I wouldnt use it, it takes a lot of work to build an oven twice.
