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.

  • Dome question on Casa2G 100

    I assembled the dome this afternoon and overall it looks pretty good. Two of the joints are maybe a little wide (maybe 1/4th inch) on the outside but seem to be good on the inside. I and two pretty muscular guys tried our best to close these gaps but couldn't do it. Is this good enough or do I need to try something else? Can I put fire barrier caulk in these joints and mortar over them? I appreciate any thoughts.

    Hi jbuildarkansas,

    You couldn't get the outside joints any tighter, because the inside joints are already nice and tight -- which is where it counts.The outside joints are wider intentionally, to let you pack some mortar between the outside edges of the dome pieces -- as well as outside of the joint. The good news is that the dome has interlocking pieces which gives you a nice, tight seam on the inside oven the oven (the important part). This is all good!

    You don't have to use anything other than the high temp FB Mortar that comes with the oven. Pack a nice 2" wide x 1" high band over the joint, and tamp it tightly down. The interlocking joint is much stronger than a simple butt joint, so you will be in good shape.
