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.

  • aerated autoclaved concrete

    Has anyone ever built an oven on aerated autoclaved concrete (ytong,hebel blocks). The R-value is 1.25 an inch.. Also I would like to build a 42" oven but it will be a tight sqeeze. Could I wrap the lower part with Insulfrax until I get clearance and the switch to vermiculite?

    We had a discussion about AAC:

    I don't think anyone has used it yet, but I think it has a lot of potential. You might not even need vermiculite concrete. Keep us posted about what you do.

      Goodmanheat,

      Why don't you just wrap the entire oven in 3-4" of Insulfrax, and forgo the vermiculite all together. That will definitely stop the heat, and it is more space efficient.

      I made a posting a while ago about solid-state ovens, and I am increasing being drawn to that design. The cost of the high-tech insulation is coming down, and it is lighter, easier to use and takes up less space. Insulfrax above and SuperIsol below.

      Also, that is how the Modena ovens are made -- and they are awesome.

      Whadya think?

        James,

        If just using the Insulfrax do you then put the stucco straight onto the insulation? or do you suggest putting wire over the insulation first before applying stucco? Thanks,

        Simon

          I think you still need to give your Igloo shape. You can do that with either stucco (pencil) rebar and lathe, or plain old rebar and lathe. Then you do a rough coat of stucco on that, and then your finish coat.

          You don't build up for the vermiculite concrete this way.

          We use rebar to build the Toscana Igloos.
