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.

    as a building materials distributor, i am suspect of the information that i get at the local big box homecenter. that said, i visited a local masonry supply house and they weren't a whole lot of help either. however, there is a local industrial firebrick distributor that was a wealth of information, and has helped several people build outdoor ovens.
    the industrial guys asked me "why don't you just build it out of plastic?" they then showed me a product called Sparplast 30 AS. super duty air set plastic refactory..basically unfired firebrick. they said to build a mold, and hammer this stuff into place around it with a mallet to 2" thick, then layer refractable castable around it if i want it thicker. the said that they have had customers go to the local farm supply store and buy those pet igloos and just hammer sparplast around them.
    has anyone tried this? any success? seems a whole lot faster than getting out my wet-saw and cutting bricks...
