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.

    Re: fire clay vs heat stop

    Sure, you can use heat-stop. Put the powder down dry, just enough to cover the lumps in the vermiculite concrete, lay the brick floor, and when you're happy with how the floor is lying, wet the brick floor to set the concrete.

    The only advantage to the fireclay-sand mixture is that it's much cheaper than heat-stop.

      I didn't use any fireclay at all. I layed insulation board on the perlite/portland insulation hearth, and the board went on level. I just layed my bricks ontop of the boards.

          Mikipal, I ordered the FB Boards from Forno-Bravo. They are fantastic. Even though my perlite/portland hearth was rough on top, the boards went on nice and level. A perfect floor for the firebricks, and much better insulation than perlite/portland alone.

            I agree with Pizzajnky

            I put down a 3 1/2 of perlite base mainly to raise the hearth level then the 2 inch Isol board on top. Even with the Iso board I had to level the bricks a little. I couldn't imagine trying to put the bricks down on the perlite/concrete it was very uneven.

              I used Perlcrete.... then I poured about a 1 inch thick "slab" of high heat mortar on top. (poor man's)
              It was nice and level.

              But I love the idea of perlcrete followed by insulating board.
              An oven can never be insulated enough. IMHO
