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.

  • why not refactory mortar to set floor?

    Was about to set my firebricks for the oven floor, and was wondering why they needed to be set in a clay/sand mix. Was thinking since I'm buying the refactory mortar for the walls why not the floor?

    Re: why not refactory mortar to set floor?

    Were you going to set the bricks wet or dry?

    Either way, you want the floor bricks to "float" due to expansion and contraction - plus it makes it really easy to change the bricks should one break.

    The mix below the bricks is there to help level the floor, plain and simple. I know I just used sand as I did not want to take a chance of the fireclay getting wet during a storm (like we have just had) and then something going wrong.

    If your insulation layer is level and flat across all pieces, no need for the material underneath. If you used vermiculite or pearlite, a layer would not hurt.
