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.

  • clay - brick oven

    hey folcs, im living in the amazon and i,m building my oven for backing bread an pizza, the point is that i dont want to spend a lot, buying the bricks is what i have to spend...
    so i build a strong wooden structure, and will do the base with clay, also the oven will be with clay and brick, dont like to use concrete...

    Re: clay - brick oven

    I'm new to the oven making business, but I have years of experience with adobe, which I assume you are referring to when you say clay. The clay content of soil varies widely and the strength of the bricks or cob is going to be dependent on the type of clay, the amount of clay, and the amount of other "stuff" in the soil you are using. Mix some clay and water and make a test brick. If it cracks add some straw or sand. Straw will add some insulation and make the brick lighter, sand will make the brick stronger in most cases. Either way shoot for the highest clay content that makes a brick that stays intact. For house building the brick needs to be strong enough to withstand a fall from waist level landing on a corner. For a stove I don't think you will need such a robust brick.

      the thing is, that i´m going to use firebricks, for the construction, but using adobe to get the bricks together, so is it wise to mix it with concrete or other stuff, so that it reraly sticks??
