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.

    No where can i find mixing instructions on the Forno Bravo mortar. It would be nice to have at least a starting point on mix ratio. Data sheet?

    Can someone help out?

    Tried FB customer service but no response. Not that impressed with their customer service, unimpressed actually.

    Roger, FB sells a refractory mortar ( it's either Heat stop or ref mix, don't recall which one). If you are referring to the "self made" mortar mix, you can find it here.

    Oh yea, be impressed - this is a great community...

        The directions for mixing is on the bag - if not, got to the manufactures web site. FB does not make mortar mix.

              Just mix it w/ water. It's kinda like pancake mix, mix it like you want. If it's made for mason's - it's pretty forgiving.

                Roger,

                I can't recall there being a specific mixing directions tag on the mortar when it came with my kit. Everything that I read on the forum and private help lead me to mix mine by sight and feel much like pizza dough. Not to wet not to dry. We used a mixing blade attached to a power drill added some water, mixed. Added a little more water, mixed. You want the consistency to be thick but not runny. Have you ever seen concrete poured from a truck and how wet it is? You want your mix to be a little drier than that or at least that is the consistency we shot for. Just mix a little at a time and spread that amount before mixing more because it sets up fairly quick.

                Best,

                Kenny

                  You add water until it is right for your conditions. There is no one answer. If you are working in 100 degree heat and it is windy it is more water than if it is 80 and still.

                  Place an amount that can be used in 15-20 minutes into a mixing container and add water until it is sticky and creamy, wetter for high temps, drier for cool temps.

                    Thanks for the replies! I know it varies a lot (I've mixed mortar before but I am not a mason) but it's nice to have a starting point...
