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.

  • Curing oven

    Should I cure my 42 inch Pompeii before I install insulation or after I have read of people doing it both ways?

    Re: Curing oven

    Like you said people go either way. But what type of insulation you installing? Igloo or enclosure? Cladding? Lots of variables. I cured without insulation but your case could be different.

      Re: Curing oven

      I am using ceramic fibre insulation and plan an igloo style finish. The oven is under a roof so I'm not worried about rain.

          Stucco. Thank you for responding. I have been reading your build and many others for years and now finally had time to build my own

            Re: Curing oven

            My plans are just like yours. I plan on curing and having it full blast before i put the insulation, because i can see how the oven performs, if it cracks, or i should say how much it cracks etc.

              Re: Curing oven

              One thing that was suggested when I cured was to loosely cover the dome with the CF while curing to help equalize the the temperature from the inside to the outside. I did not out of forgetfulness but not a bad idea and nothing to loose.

                Thanks again for the quick response. On another note I have several lengths of black stove pipe from an old wood stove could I use this for my chimney?

                  I'll defer that question to others who used single wall pipe. I used Selkirt double wall SS pipe.

                    Re: Curing oven

                    I'm either going to use a single walled pipe or no pipe, just vent it out with a red brick chimney. I am not paying $$$$ for a double walled pipe. Thats just me.

                      Re: Curing oven

                      That's exactly my thoughts. I'm sure my wood burning stove gets hot than my oven will. I can't see spending more on the chimney than the rest of the oven

                        I read an English build and his using an enameled single steel pipe. Sounds more durable than plain steel but is it available , I'm going to be keeping my eye open for that it sounds usable?

                        Regards dave
                        Measure twice
                        Cut once
                        Fit in position with largest hammer

                            Isnt enamel just the finish? If so you can even apply engine enamel from a spray can.

                              I think it's dipped and then oven baked. I don't know about engine paint would it be hard to spray the inside of a 6 in steel tube. I now have a mental picture of someone's arm up the elbow in a steel tube with a spray can. Recon one of those gloves that they use to inseminate cows. I'm not letting this thought go any further.....
