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.

  • Refractory mortar

    I am building my first pizza oven. I am very excited. Even with all this rain in California , I covered my whole project. I am having an issue with my refractory mortar setting up. The side that the wind has been blowing on is set but the side that dose not is still wet. Any suggestions?

    Re: Refractory mortar

    Rockstar, you might give us some more info. Are you using a prepackaged mortar like Heatstop50 or a home mix? Was the mortar mix the same batch for both sides concerned. Did you rehydrate (add water) to the mortar at any time? This can drastically affect the setting time and total streangth. Did you overhyrate from the initial mix or said another way, did you control your water cement ratio? If so, the wind may have been doing you a favor by drying the overly wet mortar some. There are some threads here on the board that discuss overhydration and that can cause some refractory mortars to never set. They are more touchy than a Portland mortar.
