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.

  • Cheap Fire bricks - Sydney Australia

    Hi Guys,

    I've been reading posts here for a while and see that firebricks are very expensive in Australia. I'm about to build my first WFO and also did the ring around and found the best price I can get them for is $3.30 per brick.

    I don't want to pay this price so I'm looking into buying a large load of them wholesale & passing the savings on.

    Would anyone be interested if I can get fire bricks and sell them at a much cheaper price than $3.30?

    I'm located in Baulkham Hills(near Parramatta) in Sydney.

    i definately would. im local to your area as well.

    i already purchased about 50 at for $3.50 each, and like u thought its going to be too expensive to do the entire oven from firebrick so ive gone and bought new boral blue solids for the oven and use firebricks for the base..

    if you can get the bricks cheap i can always use the solids for other backyard reno's..

      Great! I'll get things moving. I think the cost will be around $2.20 per brick. Please PM me and let me know how many you need, when you need them etc. Also, where are you located?

      Cheers

      Any other takes, I will try and get them all at the same time.

        Harrison,
        run with your high fired clay bricks for your dome. Firebricks are an unnecessary expense provided the bricks you use are high fired and not ever likely to meet that temperature.
        Littlehampton Bricks over here in SA sell heaps of their solid 4" clay pavers for around $.80c each which are fired at 1200˚C for wood fired ovens and many people use them without problems as our ovens (well mine does anyway) gets to just over 500˚C

        If you don't succeed the first time, try again and again until you get it right!

                  Hi,

                  I only recently joined this site, I'm in the process of building my own pizza oven, I wondered if it is to late to ask about the cheaper fire bricks you mentioned way back in May 2009

                  I need about 200, would you be so kind to respond and let me know, I live local to you

                  Kind regards

                  Vito

                    Hi,

                    I am also interested in firebricks. I am about to build the pompeii oven 42inch, so I guess I will be needing about 200 bricks or thereabouts? (this should cover the cooking floor and the dome)

                    many thanks,

                    Michael.

                      Vito & Michael,

                      I am also building a 1000mm brick oven and would need a similar number of bricks to you guys.

                      Let me know if you manage to find them cheaper than $3.30 each.
