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.

  • Red fire bricks

    The local brick place has regular colored, and a light red colored firebrick for the same price. I don't recall seeing these red colored firebricks in anyones pictures, nor have I seen it discussed. Could anyone tell me what is different about them and/or if it's okay to use them? My dog ate the receipt but it was a little under 1 dollar each.

    Sure, some people have used red fire bricks. And some other people get rather jelous of it, because they're rarer than regular coloured ones.

    And the Bager http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/21/b...ld-3726-2.html is making his dome out of both...

      Re: Red fire bricks

      I love the red firebricks, just couldn't find any. Frances is right, badger's oven is sweet looking with both types.

      PS-The bricks were under a dollar each? Man I got ripped off, mine cost $1.31 each.

        Thanks for the info regarding red firebricks. I was impressed also regarding price. It was 89 cents each now that I think of it.

          Gang,

          Another builder used them to alternate a couple of rings and I liked the look.

          I just lucked out in that my brick supplier happend to have about 30 leftover from a previous job. I'm just planning on using them for 3 rows then I'll use the tan colored. I have seen black, light red and some other colors...

            Yes, both my oven and my fireplace is made from the red firebricks, I drove all the way up to Progressive Brick in Passaic County to get them. I think they look a lot better then the beige ones.
