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.

  • Mortar on dome and curing

    If I understand the instructions for installation, we:

    1. grout the joints in the dome;

    2. put a 1" thick layer of mortar all over the dome;

    3. lay the insulation blanket over the mortar;

    4. finally, either layer more mortar over the blanket, or fill the space with perlite or vermiculite.

    Assuming that all this is correct, at what point does the curing take place? Can I just grout the joints, wait till the grout dries, then cure the oven (before adding the layer of mortar for insulation? Or, do I have to apply the mortar, wait a week, then start the curing process?

    bump!!

    I'm wondering this question myself.

    can I start curing the dome BEFORE adding the insulation/stucco etc?

    is there some advantage to one approach over another?

    FB support... pls chime in.

      Hello,

      You would only mortar the joints of the oven, once you mortar the joints and it dries you would lay the insulation blankets, from there would would use a metal lathe/ or chicken wire to hold the blankets down and help form the shape of your oven. At this point it is up to you to decided how you plan on finishing off the oven. People sometimes stucco, paint, glaze and seal, other's are building a housing around the oven so they fill that space with vermiculite, or they may apply stucco then tile their ovens. There are may options.

      We recommend that you complete your oven before you start curing it.

      Thanks,
