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.

  • Sawdust Clayslip Insulator

    I am building a cob oven crafted from Kiko Denzer's book and I am up to the insulation stage. I picked up a massive bag of sawdust free from my local woodworking shop and I was wondering if anyone had any luck with insulating with a sawdust clay slip and what their ratio of clay:water:sawdust. Thanks!

    I used about 50:50 clay:sawdust/woodshavings (by bucket full, not by weight ;-) )
    I dug the clay from the garden and it was pretty sandy already so didn't add any sand.
    first batch we made a very runny clay and then added dry sawdust/shavings gradually, but found it hard work. Subsequent batches we damped the sawdust first then and made the clay less wet.... this mixed in much more easily....
    Only finished earlier today, so I'll be leavng it for a week to dry before we know how it works...
