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 anyone tell me what would be better: 35 mesh fireclay or 50 mesh fireclay? I can get 100# of 50 mesh for $26 or 35 mesh for $22, from a pottery supply place - Brackers in Lawrence, Kansas.

    I guess I'll go ahead with the homebrew mortar stuff for building the dome...

    It's a rare question we've never been asked, but this is one. I simply don't know. If I had to guess, I'd say the finer stuff would be better, but again, brickyards just have bags labeled "fireclay". There's no body of experience on clay meshes here. Maybe you could explain your application to the pottery supply and ask them.

      Well, I found the Alsey refractories co. online - they carry a product called Flue-set - non water soluble refractory mortar. Capital Concrete in Topeka carries Alsey products - that's the brand of fireclay I got - a 15# bucket for $30 !!!! -
      Probably, if they do carry it, it'll be way more expensive than making my own from the fireclay from the pottery supply place!

      And what about lime - I hope I'll be able to go into lowes or home depot and have it right there!
