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.

  • Newbie bit of help needed

    Hi Everyone i am going to build my first pizza oven, am a little way off at the moment but i am looking at the materials that i will need.

    i have seen some firebricks on ebay, they measure 330mm x 330mm x 25mm so obviously square, they look good but would they do the job? they are £13 each.

    Many thanks guys

    So lets see: thirteen inches square by one inch thick. That would be a refractory tile, which are more expensive than firebrick here in the US, but nineteen dollars US seems way out of line. I know firebrick are more expensive in the UK than here, but try pricing out the standard size ones which would be about 100 x 225 x 50 mm, it should be more economical, as well as have the proper thickness for the thermal mass you need.

    Here's a thread on sourcing firebricks in the UK, I'm sure you can find others with a search:

      Graham, If the item is this: item no 120404061948, then I don't think this is appropriate for a wfo, looking at the seller's other similar items, it looks like they are made from vermiculite, and therefore be insulating firebricks rather than ordinary firebricks. The picture of the item also shows the material being cut with a normal wood saw, normal firebricks are heavy and need a diamond wheel for cutting.

      Coincidentally, I replied to Dorset yesterday re sourcing firebricks, see http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f8/dorset-6501.html

        Another refractory to try is YRPL

        worked out at just under a £1 a brick...plus delivery. I got the calcium silicate board & refractory cement from them also.

        Im just starting my first course of bricks so good luck!!

        Hope this helps
