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.

  • HELP!! I need boards!!

    I took 2 weeks off to work on my oven, starting this weekend, and I just found out that FB is completely OUT of FB Boards, and they won't have any for a couple weeks!!! If anyone has any extra boards or has a source for something similar that can ship for a relatively close price please let me know! I really really REALLY didn't want to go the cottage cheese route..

    this sucks.. totally ruined my day..

        I got 2 1/2 inch HW insblock14 from Kraemer Gunnite in south Jersey, near Philly. It's heavy to ship, but their price was considerably lower than the Harbison Walker dealer near here.

          I have decided to use Mineral Wool (stone Wool) boards.http://www.roxul.com/files/RX-NA-EN/...80-3-10-09.pdf
          They are excellent insulators, strong, cheap and easily available. Under my 39" oven I will be able to insulate 6" thick for $90

            You don't think 1200F is a bit low?

              Hey Blacknoir,

              I am really sorry that we ran short on FB Board. I feel terrible. The container arrived at the port in NorCal today, but we have to allow time for customs and local delivery.

              Marina is going to give you a call first thing in the morning, and I think we can arrange quick delivery from one of our U.S. producers. FB will pay for all the expedited shipping -- we just want to get it to you, so you can enjoy your "vacation".

              Stay tuned. I think we can make this work.

                Shay,
                I picked up a 3 cu. ft. back of vermiculite yesterday( and a bag of portland 94#) and plan to shape my outer dome. I also plan to use it around the chimney to help stablize the flue.

                In total I will have used 4cu.ft. and (4) 3 cu.ft. bags ( for a total of 16 cu.ft.) at a cost of around $65 for the vermiculite, and then at least 2 bags of portland at around $20.

                I had misgivings about the portland/vermiculite mix when I first used it ( a 2.5" layer under my entire oven) but quickly found it to be a very interesting building product.

                Certainly you can build your entire oven with scratchy ceramic fiber boards and blankets ( oh man, if you think fiberglass is bad to handle...) but the vermiculite has been so useful in filling and insulating, staying in place, etc.

                So, I must re-iterate, vermiculite is cool.

                Lars.
                This may not be my last wood oven...

                        Blacknoir,
                        My understanding of these things is that there is always a "safety factor" built into ratings like these and the mineral wool boards wont turn to pumpkins at the stroke of 1200. Anyway I believe my oven temp should rarely ever exceed 950 -1000 degrees. Seemed to me that rather than overcompensate with ratings, for the money, overcompensating on thickness of insulation was preferable.
                        I guess I will be the proverbial Guinea Pig and report back of success or failure
                        (cross your fingers that it will be success)
                        FYI I am also planning on using mineral wool batts 1' thick over the dome.
                        Good luck to you

                          Well...
                          MyRoxul Rockboard 80 was delivered and it would be much better named spongeboard.

                          I do not recommend this product.
                          I guess I am scrambling to send it back and find a quick local replacement ASAP as I have taken off next week to work on this.

                              It also looks like Harbison-walker has a place out here. So I will probably be ok
