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.

  • Is it okay to make the insulating hearth 5 or 6" thick?

    Gang,

    Quick question:

    I want to raise my hearth up a bit. I don't think so but would there be any issues with making the vermiculite/portland cement layer 5 or 6 inches thick vs the recommended 4?

    (Also, I scored about 35 "red" firebricks that I"m going to use on a few rings much like another builder).

    Thanks
    Dick

    It's not only OK, it's a good idea. The thicker your insulation, the better.
    Go for it.

      James,

      Thanks. That's what I thought - only concern was the thickness since most seem mention it's a strange looking mixture when you pour it.

      Does the offer to let me know where you found the FB still stand? I"m looking for a woodcut pizza oven image for my homebrew lable - personal use only of course.

      Thanks
      Dick
