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.

  • Door of Insulating Firebrick

    I had the thought to make an oven door out of insulating firebrick.

    I picked some up from a local ceramics store; they weigh about 2 lbs. each and have a consistency closer to styrofoam than to normal firebrick.

    The ceramics store said these bricks lining a kiln would take a 2,300F internal temp and take it down to 600F to the outside of the kiln.

    I propose to mortar them together, cut to an arched shape, and through-bolt a wooden handle.

    Total cost: ~$25.00
    Weight: ~10 lbs.

    They can be a little crumbly, I think your plan will work, with a good quality refractory mortar, but they may leave some brick dust on your hearth. It'll also be a little brittle. When they do lids for kilns, they are always held by some metal edging.

      Thanks for the input. You are right about those bricks being crumbly; you can scratch them with a fingernail. I thought of sandwiching the door with sheet metal as some have done with ceramic board. It was to avoid the dust from ceramic boards that led me to this design; I think I would rather deal with brick dust.
