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.

    Re: new guy wants to build a pompeii oven in brisbane

    Hi Jas, just saw your post.

    You get the fire bricks from Claypave at Dinmore, I think they're about $3 each which is one reason I didn't build in brick.

    If there are other materials you need to find in Brisbane I can probably help.

    Cheers,

    Mick

        I decided that a clay oven was the cheapest, easiest, and lightest way for me to go, but brick ovens are clearly going to last longer.

        You can see my build through the link in my signature. I'm also gradually documenting it at my blog.

        I recommend the rockwool insulation from these guys at Coopers Plains.

        Also the render paint from these guys at the Gold Coast - they ship it cheaply, it's great stuff.

        Cheers,
        Mick

          Re: new guy wants to build a pompeii oven in brisbane

          yeah hi all, so far with the research i've done iwas able to find firebricks at claypave at chum st Dinmore ,brisbane and yes they are $3.00 each but it will be a little while before i am able to get them ( more overtime to pay for that..)
          Landscape places and hardware company's have besser blosks from $3.00 up for 200 series blocks and bunnings have them as well similar price 1/2 blosks $2.00 . i spoke to a tradie and he said shop where they go for concrete gear like Just 4 trade they have everything and if you buy reo mesh make sure your trailer is big enough to carry the over hang or they wont let you take it out , i just trimmed it to fit ..any way i was going to bury it in concrete.
          the boxing for the foundation i got at brendale demolition timber yard, i took the tape measure and they gave me a hand saw(cheep) .
          i was going to go to the trouble of buying a cement mixer , got out bid heaps on ebay , undersold from people out of the paper that promised they would not sell it to any one else but did.ooh dirty...was i !! so in the end i called the "Concrete taxi "and they mix on site and you only pay for what you need , the foundation was@ $310 from the measurements i gave them over the phone.you can pay the driver once your done and they have wheel barrows on the truck so i"d check them out.
          I am planning to do the build in stages when the $$ come my way... if anyone else in brisbane has any info please let us know.thank you .

            Sounds good jas,

            BTW, consider getting a price on Besser blocks from Boral directly. A friend of mine got them there, and they were cheaper than the retailers.

            Cheers,

                        Hi Jas
                        way to go that should keep the cost down a bit. You'll need about 70 for the stand so that leaves you with a stack to build side tables etc. A bit of a suggestion for your mesh and steel and such check out any new houses being built in your local and front the guys on site. Show em any photos of your work and ask em for any mesh and steel left over. Thats where most of mine came from. They like being asked and even though its left over rubbish to them they do'nt like you knocking it of after hours

                            Hi Jaz
                            just worked on the dome this weekend, Man it takes time but I'm to the last 3 brick chains from closing in the dome. Hows progress with yourself? Tell us when you going to put down your slab to start the project. I've put down a few slabs some up to house size and have a few tricks to save you time, effort and money.
