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.

  • Just layed the sand/fireclay/water mixture to set the bricks -- concerned?

    Hey all,

    I tried searching this one -- I'm trying to put my mind at rest... As the title denotes, I've just set my cooking floor with the fireclay/sand/water mixture... It was all going so well, when I noticed a couple of the center bricks weren't level/had some lips... So I pulled them out and scrapped off the mixture... Put a bit more in and now they're fairly firm...

    I guess, I'm just looking for some reassurance as to how important this part of the whole process is... I think I've done a fair job, except where I removed/replaced the couple of bricks I didn't manage to cover the whole square area of the brick with the mixture and have some concerns that some of the dust/particles from the Insblock-19 will blow up into the oven chamber...

    Any advice/thoughts/experiences to put my mind at rest?

    Any openings between the bricks will fill up with ash. You are good to go.

      The sand/fireclay mixture is just for leveling. Some builders don't even wet the stuff.

        I used brick dust from the cutting of the bricks, in reality its reality not that important. No issues yet

          Not sure about that - sometimes I think reality is important.
