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.

    Hi All
    I am getting ready for my build a 36" My question is I have found a supplier of 12"x18" x 2" fire brick tiles to use for my hearth. I have been collecting fire brick for a few years and have enough to build the dome but to ship in brick for the hearth was way to expensive I live in Hawaii. I see that the kit package comes with 2" thick tiles so I am assuming that these will work fine. I am saving more that $500.00 by doing this over the firebrick. Anyone else have experience with a 2" hearth.
    Thanks Bill

    The floor is the hardest to get hot, and also the place where you want the lest heat, so it should work just fine.

      Re: Floor tiles

      Here is an idea, The dome should not rest on the floor. Ideally (And this could be argued) it should be inside the dome. Done this way, as long as you insulate the floor properly, you can design it so that every tile could be taken out and replaced whenever you want.

      This would allow you to try the tiles that you found, if you are ultimately unhappy with them, pull em out and replace em.

      Good luck.
