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.

  • 3 inch Thick Firebrick ?

    I can get 3 inch thick firebricks instead of 2 1/2 inch. I have done a trial set out of the dome and it seems to be ok

    I can get 2 1/2 inch thick firebricks as well but figure I will need less bricks if I use 3 inch and they are same price.

    Does anyone have any experience with using 3 inch thick firebricks for a 36" diameter Pompeii oven or anyone have some advice ??

    Thanks

    No experience with 3' bricks here. BUT, the thicker bricks would be an advantage in that you may have about one less chain. Buy the cheapest one....

    If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.

    An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

      As you get to the top of your dome, three inch firebricks will leave bigger gaps, if you don't trim to fit. You may want to use the bigger ones on the lower courses, and switch to the smaller ones as you approach the top of your dome, if you can get both.

      Here in the US, three inch firebricks are an expensive refractory specialty, so we don't use them much here.
