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.

  • Type s or Refractory Mortar

    Oven has been built and fired about 15 times. Last fire was roaring. I was wanting to put a thin layer of mortar on the outside of the dome to take care of a few areas that leak smoke. Does it matter what type of mortar I use such as a Type S or should I use a refractory mortar?

    I'd go with the refactory mortar - it'll get hot on the outside of that dome, once you get the insulation on it!

      I concur with Frances...the FB recipe uses more of a type N mortar which would be best for the near vertical surfaces outside the dome...

        Thats what i thought. Thanks. Probably will make some following the recipe. Probably will need to do a slow cure of the oven again since the bricks are going to soak up the moisture from the mortar. Tom
