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.

  • Refmix mortar

    1. I cannot easily obtain fireclay. Any recommendations instead of the sand-fireclay mixture for the underfloor paste? I was going to use either plan sand or a thin layer of Refmix mortar.

    2. Any objections with using Refmix mortar in construction of the vent, chimney, and openning arch?

    Hey Jeff,

    Refmix will be perfect for the vent, chimney and opening arch. That area gets hot, so using a high temperature mortar is the right thing to do. Plus, it has a nice, fine grey finish, so it will look nice.

    I don't think you need to go to the trouble or expense of mortaring down your floor bricks. If you can't find fireclay, you can use a bed of fine sand and tap your floor bricks into place with a rubber mallet.

    Would other builders agree with that?

      I also found that by time i cut all my bricks in half, i had more than enough dust/sand for underneath the hearth. i still have a bag left over. But it would be a long drive from Calgary to deliver it to you )
