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 from NH.

    We have had some good building weather and I have had plently of time in Nh. I just poured/ placed my vermiculite layer. I found vermiculite at the Agway store in Salem, NH. Ended up using three 21lb bags and about 150lbs of cement. I used a 5 to 1 ratio, the ratio of water to achieve a clumpy moist mixture was 3.

    Just orderd the wet saw from Harbor Freight that was recommended on this site. I was going to get a cheap one from Home Depot but decided to get a better one. Next up is finding fire bricks.

    (I am building a 36" oven)

    Thanks to everyone for making this such a great site.

      Re: Oven Progress

      I have to figure out how to do the whole post picture thing. Right now it is a pretty boring huge block stand. I am a little overwhelmed with how big this thing is ending up being. I had to build mine up a liitle more than others to get to the level of my deck. Fun project so far though lots of labor and too many trips to HomeDepot....

                I don't know I think this is some kind of disease. My original goal was to get to the point I am by Winter. Now my wife seems to think we will be having pizza on Thanksgiving.

                Right now my brain is starting to fill with angles and arches...
