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.

  • painting the inside of the dome?

    Hello

    The fire-bricks I'm using are dark blue/grey. They are from over-night storage heaters. They are a cost effective alternative here in the UK.

    I've not started the dome yet. But I would imagine it will be quite dark in there.

    I was wondering if there is some kinda paint I can use to lighten it?

    Thanks in advance

    You wouldn't want most paints anywhere near cooking food. The only exception that comes to mind is the kind of paint used on the insides of grills (and I don't know if that stuff can stand up to pizza oven temperatures). My recommendation is, don't paint it, embrace that natural beauty of the stone.

    Besides, the fire will light it up.

      I paint the inside with a mixture of equal parts of white cement, kaolin,lime and whiting. This is basically the same as the homebrew mortar, but all the ingredients are white. If your oven is dry dampen it a lttle before painting the stuff on and spray mist it a few times within 24 hrs after application. You can get these ingredients in small quantities from pottery suppliers.It leaves your dome a bright white and the mixture fires itself on and goes quite hard.

          I dunno, what are the theological implications of setting Jesus on fire on a regular basis?

              2 rules of refractories:
              1. All refractories will eventually crack
              2. All coatings (paint, mortar, etc..) put over refractory will eventually flake off

                No evidence of flaking on my dome coating. It's been there for a couple of years.
