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.

  • Gaps in floor and expansion joint

    Hello all,

    I set my floor today in the fireclay and sand mixture. I cut the floor so the dome will rest outside the floor. I was wondering about two things before I proceed.

    1. Do I need to leave room for the floor to expand when I set the soldier course or do you just mortar them right to the side of the floor.
    2. Do you fill the gaps in the floor with anything? I have some gaps where the bricks don't quite touch, nothing major, 1/8" max; just seems like it would collect flour and stuff.

    I will post pics in my thread at:

    Yes, leave a gap for the floor to expand. I left 1/8". Some guys place a piece of cardboard around the floor as they build their first course.

    As far as floor brick gaps go, don't sweat them. They will fill with ash.
