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.

  • pumice stone vs vermiculite; clay vs brick

    Hi
    Just about to start the vermicrete insulation layer and wondering if anyone has ever used pumice stone instead of vermiculite? I have enough pumice to do the hearth but was wondering about its insulative properties compared to vermiculite - same or worse? The particle size vary between 10 - 30 mm and it is hard compared to vermiculite so I guess the slab would not be spongey like vermicrete.

    Also, out of interest has anyone had any experience with clay / earth ovens? How well do they work compared to firebrick?

    Thanks.

    No help here. I'd expect that pumice would work OK, but if I could find ceramic board or vermiculite, I'd do that.

    The less insulation you have under the floor, the faster the oven floor will cool, or the harder it will be to get hot, which will likely result in lower temps to cook your pizza on.
