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.

  • Bricks set on side at oven floor

    Hi

    I am about to lay the oven floor of my oven and I am wondering if I should set my bricks in the floor on the side (so it would have a 110 mm. thickness). In this way the oven will have the same ˝ brick thickness the whole way around.

    Will this give an advantage for soaking up heat and give a better oven?

    Or is it just extra unnecessary mass that is of no use?

    I have enough firebricks, so the cost is not an issue.

    Thank you for your input.

    It is a matter of preference. From what I understand people do them both ways. I opted for the soldier course on their edge. More people do it this way from all the reading that I have done.

    I don't think it is a big deal.
    Good luck.
    Post some pics.

      Hi Darin

      Thank you for your reply. I was referring to the bricks in the bottom though. So if the floor itself should be 65mm thick or 110mm thick. Will this make a difference?

        Heat rises so the top of the dome bricks will heat up quicker than the floor.
        To give more mass in the floor will require more wood to get it to temp but it will hold heat if its well insulated and has a well insulated door.
        So if wood and time is cheap go for it.
        If its not dont.

          Joergen,

          There will be many more edges to catch your peel. Other than that, I don't see a problem.

            Oh sorry,
            I miss understood your post. I was thinking about the soldier course. As for the floor, I would not put them on edge. You want to make sure and follow the insulation guidelines as well as the guidelines for the different thickness's. You don't have to do that but it is designed for the right amount of heat up time and the right amount of heat retention.

            Are you insulating with FB Board or Vermiculite?
