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.

  • Soldier angle cut

    Just about to lay in the floor for my 36" Pompeii. I plan to do a internal floor with vertical soldiers. Two questions. 1. What angle to cut the tops of the soldiers? 2. With the internal floor my brick saw obviously cuts straight angles not curves, do i fill in with fireclay/sand/lime/portland mortar, just fireclay and sand or other? I guess the fireclay bog question is also relevent to the top of the dome as well where the guide pdf shows a fair bit of mortar between the bricks.
    Cheers

    1. What angle to cut the tops of the soldiers?
    1) Set brick upright on insulation, in position.
    2) Stretch string from center of floor to desired height of soldier.
    3) Mark string angle. Cut and repeat.

    do i fill in with fireclay/sand/lime/portland mortar, just fireclay and sand or other?
    I vote for filling that gap with wood ash.

      "I vote for filling that gap with wood ash."

      Or have the hearth bricks go under the soldiers.
