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.

  • Starting oven in Mexico...need supplies

    I am starting construction on an oen in Valle de Bravo, Mexico over the summer. However, I am having a hard time sourcing supplies. If anyone in Mexico has already built the Pompeii oven, I would appreciate pointers toward suppliers.

    Best,

      You look like you're reasonably close to Mexico City, so there shouldn't be any problem getting what you need. Firebricks, and structural masonry stuff come from a brickyard or mason's supply. Vermiculite comes from garden suppliers, you want the stuff that is used as a soil conditioner. Pool suppliers sell it too. Specialty stuff, like insulating boards and blankets come from refractory suppliers, who sell stuff for kilns and furnaces. I did a quick google search, but I don't know enough Spanish to get anywhere. Good luck.

        Best,

        Hi Manitas,
        Try to talk with people that sale ovens in Mexico City (DF) they build it with refractory materials, I’m sure that they buy the materials in the same city, I live in Mexicali BC, I found the firebrick in Proconsa and Home Depot at 23 pesos, you can try it in Home Depot because Proconsa is only in Mexicali.
