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.

  • Desert Sand

    Below is an excerpt from a website that discusses the insulation property of sand:
    "Temperatures in Namib can reach as high as 150 degrees on the surface of the sand. A fraction of an inch could mean a 30 degree temperature difference. The sand , as well as shade, act as insulators to the intense sunlight found in Namib Desert. "
    Assuming that the above is correct , can sand be used as an insulator below the hearth floor and on top of the dome (possibly in place of vermiculite)?

    No. Deep sand in the desert stays cool because it conducts the cold from below. Caves are always 50 degrees. It's not remotely an insulator.

      The problem with sand as an insulation on top is if you get cracking, sand will get onto your meal you are cooking. V'lite is much coarser.
