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.

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

  • Mixing/Applying Mortar Question

    How do most people mix up their mortar? In buckets, wheelbarrows, etc? And after it's mixed, do you work directly from the bucket, or transfer to a board of something?

    When I did my soldier course, I mixed my mortar in a wheelbarrow, and transferred piles of it to a scrap piece if plywood as I worked. I'm about to start my dome, I was wondering if there a better way?

    Thanks!

    I only mixed small portions at a time (pre-mixed home brew) in a small paint pail that gave me about 30 minutes worth of brick laying time. I scooped mortar directly out of the pail to butter just one side of each brick laid.

      Thanks for the reply George! By paint pail, do you mean the 1 gallon cans that you buy paint in?

        No, these are smooth bottomed, smallish 3 or 4 quart plastic buckets that you can pick up at Home Depot for like 2 bucks.
