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.

  • Castable Refractory Insulation

    Hi Everyone,

    Today I came across a Harbison-Walker castable refractory insulation, Greenlite 45L. It comes in a 55lb bag is listed on eBay for around $38. The link to it's
    thermal characteristics is:

    GREENLITE-45-L PLUS 55# BAG - 10023

    I'm about to pour my foundation and support stands for a 42" Pompeii shortly and I wonder if anyone has used this kind of product to insulate under the oven floor?

    Cheers,

    John

    The linked site shows the product at 72 pounds per cubic foot, so you would need a lot of bags. You're going to need a bag for every two square feet if you're pouring a four inch layer. If it were me, and it was a cost-no-object situation, I'd go with the insulation boards. And, if you're mixing the stuff up anyway, why not use the proven vermiculite/perlite solution and save a bunch of cash?

      David,

      Looking at the numbers, you're absolutely correct: This stuff IS expensive. I'll go with the vermiculite. Thanks!
