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.

  • What kind of Paint for Casted Archway?

    I have a casted refractory cement archway that will mount to the front of my oven. I want to paint it black. I have to imagine concrete paint won't hold up to the heat. Can I use the high-temp BBQ grill paint there that I plan on using for the chimney without adhesion issues?

    wawazat,
    There are a couple things I would recommend. First, you can probably mix a coloring agent into your cast archway. Secondly, there are some castable refractories that are already black. Third, after you fire it, most of it will be black anyway!

    Paint? A webber grill is black, and probably just a high quality enamel. It wouldn't be my choice, but it would probably work okay.

      Let me clarify... the arch is cast & already exists so I believe that nixes your 1st 2 choices. So I'm pretty sure that leaves me with painting it.

      Just wanted to see if anyone's tried a high-temp BBQ grill paint & how it worked.

        You might consider a stain, I know there are stains available for firebrick, that was an option from my supplier, and they make a jet-black:

        Firebrick Stain: Brick Stain in a Variety of Shades for Refractory Firebrick.

        Frerk and Sons on Belmont in Chicago is a local distributor:

        Good luck,

        Doug

          Stain would probably work great! Good idea Doug.
