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.

  • Anxious to cure - is it time?

    Hi All,

    I completed the dome brickwork last weekend, but it got too cold here in Salt Lake to finish the second arch and vent detail.

    I used a pre-mixed refractory mortar called "Mullitex-B," and the folks at the brick store I use indicated that this mortar only cures in the presence of 200-300 degree temperatures.

    It has been a week since I fitted the keystone in place, and I have left the form I used for the last few courses in place all this time. I do not have the blanket insulation is place yet.

    I am anxious to cure what work I have done so far. Does it sound okay if I cure the dome this next week, then next spring when I finish the rest, to cure the oven over again?

    Is it okay to cure without insulation?

    I'm a little concerned about removing my form and having the last few courses fall in over the winter if I don't get the dome curred.

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    Valan
