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.

  • How Many Insulating Blankets?

    I have a 36" Oven. I plan to build an enclosure. How many FB blankets do I need to insulate properly?

    Also, when I start my curing fires this spring. Should I wrap with blankets before I start the cure or after?

    Dan,
    it shouldn't make any difference whether you blanket it or not when curing. However, if you plan on keeping the dome shape rather than than enclosure then I would render your blankets and then commence your curing.

    Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

      Neill,
      I don't really agree with you about rendering and then curing. I have seen an oven outer shell cracked and I'm pretty sure it was because the curing was done last. Too much steam pressure will crack the outer shell. If you eliminate the moisture first then do the stucco/render there wont be this steam pressure build up. The trouble is you also want the outer layer kept damp for a week to make it strong, but this is easily achieved if you wrap it in cling wrap. This method might take a little longer , but bettter to be safe than sorry. We ended up fixing the oven shell by giving it another chicken wire and stucco/render layer over the top and it was fine.
      Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
