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.

  • Oven brick options

    Hello to all

    I am at the stage of the insulating hearth for my 42" Pompeii, and planning next stages.

    The Australian firebrick suppliers I have contacted have 9"x4.5"x3" bricks(230x115x75). I would use these on the oven floor and for dome.

    An alternative floor brick is a 12"x12"x2" tile(300x300x50) (I may also be able to get a 12"x12"x3" tile, but currently N.A.)

    Given I will have good hearth insulation, would the 2" tile be ok, or is the greater thermal mass in the 3" brick important?

    Secondly, I can also get 3 different angle arch bricks at the same price as straight bricks.
    1. 75mm/51mm
    2. 75mm/63mm
    3. 75mm/69mm

    Is it worth checking the angles of above, and considering building the entire dome out of arch bricks? (= less gaps to mortar?) I guess it would depend on the angle being just right, or you would need to shim anyway?

    I look forward to any comments. I will get organised soon and post some photos I have taken so far.

    All the best, Andrew

    Re: Oven brick options

    US firebricks are two and a quarter inches thick, so I think the 2" refractory tiles would do fine. It's interesting that in Australia that refractory tiles and arch bricks are affordable, where they are mostly expensive specialty items here in the States.

    Arch bricks will use less mortar, especially if you are cutting them on an angle to fit closely. You will also use more bricks, the better they fit.
