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.

    Hi All!

    I am planning to do my first build during my 1 month break from work.
    I have recently purchased a new house and there is half a constructed base in the graden that I plan to bring to the correct level and then build a 900mm refactory cast dome on it.

    I have sourced a suppllier for a refactory cast material for the inner layer and oven base and the one they recomend has the following composition:
    SiO2: 42
    AL2O3: 51
    Fe2O3: 0.6
    TiO2: 1.2
    CaO+MgO: 4
    K2O+Na2O: 0.52

    So it is essentially:
    1-5% Aluminium Oxide
    10-20% Calcium Alluminate
    80-90% Calcined Clay

    Density: 2300kg/m^3
    Max Service Temp: 1550 deg Celcius

    What are your thoughts on this material? And what thickness do you recomend?

    I have a local modified Perlite mix that has great insulating properties that I plan to use as insulation both under and around the dome .

    I look forward in sharing my build with you!
