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.

  • Fire clay - sand paste curing.

    Hi all,

    I am just posting as I’m not sure about the fire clay, sand and water paste for the firebrick bed.

    1. Do I have to wait for this paste to set/dry below the firebrickbed before starting on the dome?

    2. If so how long does it take to set?

    3. Do I have to wet the firebricks before laying them on the bed of fire clay / sand / water mix?

    Thank you all.

              Great pictures!

              The fireclay/sand paste doesn't set, it just drys, so you don't need to cure it. There's nothing to cure. In fact, some builders lay out the mixture dry, and when they get the floor the way they want it, just wet the bricks afterwords.
