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 hearth question

    Hi Folks,

    I'm getting to the soldier course on my oven, and wondering about the oven floor before I go too far. I thought I ran into a thread that talked about pouring fireclay or fireclay/sand mixture into the small remaining gaps between the bricks of the floor, but could not find it today.

    Can someone confirm wether or not to fill in the gaps in the floor?

    Thanks in advance from Salt Lake,

    You don't need to fill the cracks for the floor bricks. The should be put together snuggly. (Any voids will soon be filled with ashes anyway)

    The fireclay/sand mixture can be used underneath the firebrick if they are not quite level. Most are using this dry.

    Good luck with the build!
