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.

  • can i make use of my firebrick bits and pieces?

    I'm nearly done building my dome and have been saving every scrapel of firebrick including a lot of dust from cutting. Is there any use to this for the remainder of my build? It seems like such a waste throwing it away. I have no need for refractory mortar. I have enough for the landing and vent. Could i mix it in with vermicullite cement to make it more insulating? Anything else?

    It will make it less insulating as it will fill all the air voids in the mix.

      Thanks. Perhaps mix it with portland cement, sand and lime and add it to the outside of the dome as thermal mass?

        Best idea is to use it as fireclay for homebrew - but you can crush it and mix 3:1:1:1 and put on outside of dome. Many builders do this.

            3 sand or fire brick gravel/pieces
            1 firebrick dust or fireclay
            1 hydrated lime
            1 Portland cement - Not concrete or sackcrete or sand mix

              Sand/gravel/vermiculite is ALWAYS the highest of the ratios..
