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.

  • Supplies in Minnesota

    Looking for recommendations on suppliers in the Twin Cities area for things like Firebrick. I also posted on craigslist in hopes of finding some used firebrick. I'll probably do the same when it comes time to doing the outside masonry, I'm thinking some old chicago brick...

    Thanks,

    First vendor I found was Smith-Sharpe FBS and they gave me a price of $2.13 if you buy <100. 100-456 bring it down to $1.95. They also sell Mortar "Sairset" in 15#(gallon) and 55# (2.5 gallon) pails for $20.32 and $50.19.

    Ouch. I was hoping to find someone for $1..

      The consensus is that you shouldn't buy wet (premixed) refractory mortar at any price. We've had people get it for free, and had to throw it out.

        Ah, I didn't think about the fact that it might be premixed but it makes sense since it's in buckets. I learned long ago never to buy premixed mortar.. big no no..

            Almost everyone else has recommended Smith-Sharpe FBS.. looks like I'm stuck with them.
