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.

  • Perlite Insulation Board

    Hello,
    I have a friend who has some of this at his work and I might be able to get some for a decent price. Would this be acceptable to use under the floor as my insulation board? The only other purpose I can think of to use it as would be for the door? Or do you think I should stick with whats recommended.....Thanks

    I'd check around a bit about perlite insulation board - that's the roof insulation - right? I think it's made with some asphaltic compounds - so I don't know if it's appropriate to use as the insulating base for a wood fired oven. I also understand that there are some problems that have been reported with perlite insulation board and water absorption / retention - so do your homework . . .

      I asked the same question years ago. It's mostly paper. Don't use it. There is some asphalt and a little perlite. It is not going to hold up to the weather and by no means the oven. Do you want to risk this stuff deteriorating and watch the structure fail?
      For the door...asphalt side out....ok maybe...when it fails you can just toss it but you still have to burn off the asphalt side. Sooooo, just don't do it. I thought about it and rejected the same...I had acess to free perlite board
