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.

  • Can i use just blanket for dome insulation.

    I have bought a 7.3 metre roll of 600 wide by 25mm thick superwool insulation for the dome. Would three layers of this on the dome be enough insulation. I plan on stacking bluestone leaf on the exterior with mortar on the inside to bond the stone and weatherproof it.

    Three inches of the blanket should be fine. We look forward to seeing pictures of your bluestone structure...

      Good plan 3G. In fact, FB is about to start recommending 3" of blanket for all installations, and the Pompeii Kit comes with 3" of blanket.

      Ceramic blanket insulation works better, it's easier to transport and install, and the prices having come down to where 2" doesn't even cost more than 4" of vermiculite. It's the modern world. :-)

      If you have any extra, use it on top. And make sure you overlap the seams.

      Enjoy!

          I just covered my dome and used 4" on top and 2" on the sides of the 6# ceramic blanket. It seems to be working really well. The temps stay high and no rise in outside temperature.

          Just for info sake, I set my hearth bricks on 1" SuperIsol board on top of 3 1/2" of perlite crete and the bottom of the structural pour underneath reads 110-120 degrees after pizza fire. I think it would be best to go with at least 2" of SuperIsol board.

            I'm looking for some small pieces of Superwool. I see that you purchased some to use in your oven. Do you have any scraps that you would be willing to sell? I don't need much and do not want to buy an entire roll. Thanks.
