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.

  • remove the plywood support?

    Hi, I built my 32 x 36 oven per the Bread Builders Alan Scott/ Daniel wing book. Not knowing any better I built a substantial support under the hearth slab as support, and hadn't planned on removing it, as with a layer of fire brick, 3-1/2" concrete slab, and 2-1/2" vermiculite/ Portland I didn't think it would get all that hot. We'll I did my first full firing a couple of day's ago and wow it is really hot (in the center especially). So my question is do most everyone remove all of the wooden structure and plywood support that is under the slab, and since it is obviously gonna get hot, what can i put down there as additional insulation?

    Also I built this with the 5/8" rebar grid layout resting on the cinderblock's as the bread builders book describes. Just seems like about a gabillion lbs of brick and concrete for rebar to support?
Working...
