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.

  • Insulating with stonewool

    I'll put this post back here again, as this is where people are likely to be looking for info on insulation.

    So, as I said, I have insulated the dome of my oven with a stonewool product called Flumroc, because it was all I could get hold of. I put two 1 m wide strips of 5 cm thick Flumroc over the dome, one in each direction, so the top of the dome is covered with a double layer.

    Its disgusting to work with, will make you itch soon as you look at it... but I'm pleased with its insulating properties. Two days ago I lit a BIG fire in the oven, and the top of the oven only got very very slightly warm. And the inside of the oven is STILL warmer than the outside air two days later, after two nights of freezing temperatures... seems pretty impressive to me.

    One drawback is this insulation shouldn't get wet (hence the foil finish on the outside). Looks like some kind of space shuttle

    I'll be adding a vermiculite layer as well, so I'm currently wondering how to do that without getting the Flumroc wet. I'm sure I'll think of something though...

    So, has anyone else here insulated their oven with a similar product?
