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.

  • Cloita's 42" Pompeii in Plainfield, IL

    Hello everyone, after about six months of reading and a few weeks of actually scouring the forums, I have finally started my oven. Our backyard concrete was poured in June and needed a good four weeks to cure. I took a four-day birthday weekend last week and got my start. My corner installation was inspired by Johnfm43's base so he gets first credit!

    Concrete going in:

        Excellent work, love the concrete look.. never seen that before..
        Any chance those pics can be put underneath eachother instead of side by side?

          Thanks. I'll think twice about that stamp design next time though, was hell getting that first course of bricks level.

                It's about that time of the season again in the midwest. Poured my hearth, cut my fiberboard, and started dry fitting the oven floor.

                    Hi Colita,

                    I am doing a corner build too and about the same stage as you. Are you doing an enclosure or a dome? Still have not decided on whether to enclose or not but heading towards a dome style.

                      Grats on the progress! I'm planning on enclosure with a flagstone finish to go with the stamped concrete under the oven. Left about six inches each side to accommodate the framing and insulation, hopefully I did it right.

                        Nice job on stamped concrete. Post progress pics. Working on jig for brick saw to cut taper/bevels on firebrick. Going to steal ideas from WFOs.

                        Thx,

                            Lots of progress this weekend, for my pace anyway! Most of my floor is cut and dry fit and my soldiers are ready for mortar.

                              Any tips for inside cuts like this with a stationary saw?? Failed a few times then gave up for the night. Been thinking hard about it and might go with a two-piece approach to eliminate the inside cuts.
