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.

I am going with a round stainless chimney (which has a 14" anchor plate), do I need to/can I mix with perlite to make , percrete (gotta love this new lingo, lol!) My oven is for use in a commercial setting (French Caf&#233 in Niagara Falls, Canada.

    Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who gave me such great advice on building my oven, and I will upload some pics when I dump all my pics onto the puter (this weekend I think

    Re: cast lintel question......

    Well first off I am no expert and have only used one brand. OK disclaimer out of the way.

    I used KS-4 reinforced with stainless needles to cast a vent transition. Found it easy and forgiving to work with and very dense and hard when set. I have only 5 high temp firings to date, but it is holding up fine, looks good as new.

    Another used a different product to cast the entire oven. Can find that here;

    If you are going to cast, you might think about casting more than the lintel. Maybe lintel and vent. If I were to do mine again, I would cast the arch opening and vent in one piece.
