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.

  • No Reveal = Door Problems...?

    embarassingly enough...i didn't understand what a "reveal" was when i was researching how to build a wood-fired oven, so i just ignored it and didnt incorporate it into my building plans. i guess i really didn't understand how important it is to have a door...i was young and stupid..ahem*last summer*

    so now i need to find a way to get the door to fit. Although it it may be a little unorthodox, i was thinking of fabricating a door that is cut to fit exactly the hight of the opening, and cut to to fit horizontally about a half an inch wider on both sides. I will then fit the door on a swivel that is attached to a longer handle so that i can push it into the oven, turn it 90 degrees at the swivel (kind of like a revolving door attached to a handle) and pull it shut.

    Does any one see any potential flaw in this plan? it works in my head, but in real life things usually tend to go awry

    also, on a side note...i was planning on sandwiching a peice of FB board between 2 peices of steel to make the door insulated. i got to thinking that it may not be worth $70 plus shipping and handeling to have to cut the peice of FB board that i need and probably discard a mojority of it. Is there a way to get a smaller peice of FB board, or is there some other cost effective way to insulate a WFO door?

    Just put the revel on the door, that is what I did.




    (That was before I filled it with perlcrete)

        Wow, Tscar. That's some nice work there... How heavy is it? Very interesting.

        Is it in progress now, or do you have completed pics... (Going to your site now.)

          It is heavy (maybe 6 pounds total) but it is in 2 pieces so no problem. No pics of it on my build, I need to update that tomorrow. It works great, but it is constantly shedding flakes of perlcrete where I grab it. The inside is parged with a thin layer of refractory, and once I decide exactly where to position my handholds, I will do the same to the outside, at which point it gets header painted black.

            Tom, cool door. Is that refractory cast cement or what that is holding the perlcrete?

              It is insulating castable. It is pretty durable, the only problem is that I wasn't sure HOW insulating it was so I had to cast it solid then use it to see. The answer was, "not insulating enough". It still got pretty warm, and my normal 5 day cool down to ambient went to 4, so I carved out about 20 bucks worth of castable. On the next one it will be skeleton cast using foam inserts.

                I will be interested in seeing how that comes out.

                  YES! Please post info and pics!! Sounds like an interesting project. I will need to make a door in the near future.
