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.

    can any one help explain the best way to put down the soldier course? I see it put down on the fire brick (like FB plans) and I also see the soldier course put down on the hearth and the floor of the WFO is cut perfectly inside, it looks like a lot more work. I don't mind the work if there is a advantage.

    Thank you

    Both ways work fine. It's a matter of personal choice. Professional ovens are built with the floor entirely inside the dome, because in a oven in continuous use every day the floor can need replacement every decade or so. This usually isn't the case in home ovens.

    I built my dome on the floor: I thought it would spread the load a little bit, and as you pointed out it's less fussy cutting.

      Thank you very much that makes my choice a lot easier and a lot less time on the brick saw.
