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.

  • Replacing floor

    Hello ,

    Looking for some advise , I need to replace the cooking floor of my oven. Have had bad spalling ( I think thats what its called ) on my cooking surface. I was thinking about just pulling out the bricks in the middle and either turn them over or replace them, which would be the easiest. Then thought I could try and make a two or three piece floor and cut it to creat a circle to put in , is there a material or surface that could work better than fire brick. I will try and post pictures.

    Thanks ,

    Mike

    Some use soapstone as a cooking surface. Perhaps you could try flipping the existing bricks and see if it works. If it doesn't, move on to either new firebrick or a new floor (soapstone method).
    My oven (for now):

      I'd look at Soapstone and look for an installer that has leftovers. The up side is that the 3cm Soapstone won't add a great deal of height to the oven and won't require pulling up the existing floor. You'll be adding additional mass to the floor and the temps will be more even. I think you'll find an installer that will have what you need for $100 and a 6 pack, or there abouts.
