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.

  • To cover or not to cover??

    Hello all
    I'm about to start building the dome for my oven using red clay bricks. People are telling me that I will have to build a roof over the oven to protect it from the weather to reduce the risk of cracking. I was planning on doing some sort of mosaic tile design on the dome and having it as a feature in the garden. What material are people using to do the final render that will protect it from the weather? Have people had problems with their ovens being exposed to the weather? Any advice will be much appreciated.

    I would use marble dust in it, no matter what kind you end up using to help waterproof it.

      You may want to look at Frances build thread: She is the original mosaic maven here on the forum.

      You do know you need a significant layer of insulation between the brick dome and the outer covering, as well as under the oven floor?
