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.

  • Working temperature for mortar

    I have just started my first course for the oven dome and with colder temperatures here I am concerned about continuing to work. I can enclose the working area and heat it if necessary but for how long after I set brick. Can anybody advise me on working temperatures and how long I would need to heat after setting brick if the temp. is below the working range? Thanks

    Re: Working temperature for mortar

    I wouldn't lay brick much under forty degrees F. You will want to keep it from freezing until it dries out, lest freezing water force apart your new masonry work. Needless to say, it takes longer for things to dry out in cold weather, to say nothing of the disagreeable nature of working with brick and mortar in the cold.

    But if you can keep it above forty, and a ordinary halogen work light in an enclosed tent should be enough to do this, then by all means proceed.
