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.

  • Cure Time For High Temp Mortar

    I am about to start building my dome. GENERALLY, how much time does it take the mortar to set so that it can hold the firebrick in place? Does each individual brick need to be supported while the mortar set?

    I used Heat Stop and mixed it pretty wet and it only took only a minute or two before I could move on to the next brick. This was just for the top third of my 42 incher, no significant wait time for the ones on the first 5 or 6 courses. It was 95 degrees outside so that may have helped me.

      Generally....the bond will set faster the drier and warmer the unit is. Also, the time it takes for the mortar bond to hold a brick in place will generally be longer for each course closer to the top of the dome on a pompeii build.

      Curing will depend on the amount applied, water content and temperature.
