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.

  • Arch Construction

    I have finally gotten to the point where I am starting the arches on my Alan Scott style oven and have a question regarding them. With everything that I have read and looked at on the internet, it looks like you can mortar in the first dome chain and immediately remove the form and start on the second.

    Am I reading the instructions correctly or should I leave the form in until the mortar has had time to harden? If it can be removed right away is their a sagging effect that i need to watch out for?

    Theoretically you can, but in practice I wouldn't. But then, I would never build it like it is shown in those plans anyway. Stack bond is inherently weaker than running bond, so your form should be long enough to do either all of the arch or at least one third of the arch.

      I have discovered another lie on the TV. Laying brick is not as easy as it is played on TV, unless you are tscarborough !!! Neither is sheetrock mudding or laying tile. Practice makes better, I guess.

      How long did you leave your barrel forms in? Is one week enough? I am up to two days with misting and plastic on it the whole time. Also, chimney, on your cap that seals the top, how do you keep the mortar from sliding down the outside of the clay flue tile?

      I will be checking the bees this week, hope they have been very busy.

      Thanks,

      Derk

        I took it out the next morning. I filled the chimney with perlite, then put lath on top of that.
