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.

  • Chris' oven build

    Hello everyone. Long time lurker and not much of a contributor. I am learning, so i don't have much to add, but a lot to learn. I want to do it right the first time, so am looking for advise. I am planning on an igloo style WBO.

    So far, I have a 4" concrete base with a 4.25" 5:1 vermiculite to cement. The insulation layer is currently drying and about 1-2 weeks before being ready to move on. So i have time for recommendations.

    Issues so far. The base is 4 foot x 4.5 foot. I want to maximize the area of my oven. My question is, is a blanket the best way to go to keep my wall thickness down? I will be using firebricks cut in half for the walls.

    Here is the picture of it so far. It is next to the fireplace I built last year. Everything will be faced with stone when I am done.

      except it keeps raining and the vermiculite is a sponge, so aside from cutting blocks and stacking them on a table pretending to build a pizza oven, i am stuck. LOL.

      Any advise on how thick of a blanket i should use? Can i get by with 3"? that would maximize my internal size of the oven. I kinda limited myself with a 48" wide base.

        3 inches of blanket is plenty. I would think that it is better than most have done.
