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.

  • I need curing advice

    Finished my 39" Pompei, and I'm ready to start curing. I let the thing sit for 10 days after closing the dome, and since I built it gradually, some of the lower mortar has been curing for months.

    Regarding the curing fires, I have an I.R. thermo and plan to follow the curing schedule in the plans, but where do I take the reading? and when I get the reading, do I extinguish the fire?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    I used heatstop 50 dry mix, if that makes any difference. the temperature here this week will be warm 70s and 80s F

    You should measure the top of the dome (on the inside), or just next to where the fire is hitting the top of the dome.

    You want to let the fire burn up the slowly burn out. Ideally peaking at the desired temperature. If it hits the desired temperature for the day and the fire is still heating up, try to spread it out a bit to cool it off. You don't need to extinguish it unless it's going to get too hot.
