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.

  • Pompeii Oven Kit

    Anyone purchase one of these to build their WFO? Seems nice to have all the supplies delivered and not have to search for them all.

    Thanks

    If you are willing to pay the shipping cost for the convenience, it should be no problem. Mailing bricks is not cheap.

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

      I looked into it, as Les points out the shipping is a killer. As much as the kit itself. I would put the time into finding the firebrick locally, as it will really save you $ and also give you more latitude to build the oven the way you want. The other stuff (blanket, board) you can have shipped pretty easily from either our hosts or some other suppliers that others have used and you can easily find by searching the forums. I used a place in socal that has really good prices.

      One other recommendation - I notice you've started several threads with questions about your build. You would probably be better off if you just started one thread about your build. Once people comment on it, they're subscribed and you see all the updates via email. It's a lot easier to get consistent feedback that way.

        I took your advice and started my own thread for my build. I just wanted to post here for anyone building in Maine that I found an EXCELLENT resource for all of your construction needs. INFAB in Lewiston.... ok, back to my thread
