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.

  • Exact specs on insulfrax for 42" oven?

    What are the exact specs on the insulfrax blanket for a 42-inch oven? The supplier I've called has it in 2" x 24" x 12.5' in 3 weights--4 lb, 6 lb, and 8 lb. I'm inclined to go with the heaviest, but maybe that's overkill.

    Do I need 50 ft?

    Thanks!

    According to my blanket supplier, the weights have to do with the density of the ceramic weave, the heavier the weight the more ceramic and less air. In this case heavier is better for high temp insulation, so you want the 8lb.

    If you are talking the whole roll, then yes you should go ahead and buy the 50ft roll. That should be 50 sq ft, the products I looked at came in 24"x 25' rolls. That will completely cover your dome. Make sure and overlap all seams you want complete coverage.

      Nick - I don't think you can overkill on the insulation. I've got 4 inches of insblock under my floor, I am going to cover the dome with 2 inches of inswool (8 lb), and I am planning on adding 4 - 6 inches of loose vermiculite.

        Thanks for the replies. I agree on "no such thing as overkill" when it comes to insulation. We are using loose vermiculite, too.
