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.

  • los angeles supplies

    Hey people. I'm having trouble locating an all around refractory supplier in Los Angeles. Maybe it's just that I'm too tired from jackhammering our sloped concrete backyard to make room for this oven all day yesterday. Any tips are welcome.

        Bricks/Vermiculite in LA

        Some of us have posted our locations on http://www.frappr.com/brickoventampa

        I have tried to get Tom from Downey to join the board but he has not gotten around yet. I asked him about finding firebrick in LA and this is his edited response. Hope it helps

        I bought my firebricks from a company in Los Alamitos(on Cerritoes st.) I can't remember the name right now. but it is a very common supply where builders get material for fireplaces. If you are looking, there is a mason material place (I cant remember the name but I drove by it) on PCH in Lomita. If they don't sell it they will know who does.

        Vermiculite is the hard item to find in this area!!! I have been looking for weeks and I finally found it. In fact, I am picking it up today at 9:00 AM in Lake Forrest. I am getting 7 - 4 cubic feet bags at $20 a bag. The company is on line. www.uline.com They sell it bulk as packing material. I was told by the manufacture in New Jersey that I wanted grade #2 for what I am building.
