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.

    First i wanted to say thanks to everyone for helping me out so far. i just finished my dome and ill post some pictures after i get off of work...

    now on to the questions. It rained pretty bad a few days ago, and somehow it was windy enough to blow the tarps i had covering my oven partially off. when I went to check on my oven, the insulation mat underneath was completely soaked (as much of it as i could see any way). I was wondering if water damages the insulation or makes it less effective in any way?

    second, it was late when i had finished my dome so i was unable to get inside the oven to clean off the mortar stains because i couldn't see. I was contemplating just leaving it, but i was wondering if there was a time efficient way of cleaning off the inside of my dome. If not, I guess it's not hurting anything.

    Third, can i start curing my oven before i have put the insulating blanket around the oven, or should I wait until i insulate?

    Re: 3 questions

    1. No. I left a piece of my board out all winter with some brick stacked on it. It didn't seem to be compromised at all.

    2. If you have chunky pieces of mortar hanging down, you could probably knock it off with an angle grinder. If it is just stained, it's probably not worth the effort.

    3. You can cure before insulating. In fact, if everything is that wet, it may be advantageous.
