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.

  • The best alternative for CF board/blanket?

    Hi, everyone.
    I am from Serbia and am trying to build a Pizza oven. The base and concrete floor are already built, so next come: insulation under the floor, fire brick floor,dome,insulation of the dome etc.... The problem is that Ceramic Fibre Boards (and blankets) are very expensive for our (serbian) pockets. So, my question is: is there and what is the best alternative for CF boards/blankets ( under and around the dome insulation)? Thank you in advance.

    Dino,
    The cheapest and best alternative is either perlite or vermiculite mixed with cement. It is widely available as it is used extensively by plant nurseries.
    Usually mixed 5:1 for the insulating slab under the floor and if you are building an igloo style, 10:1 over the dome. If you are planning to build an enclosure around the dome instead of an igloo, it is best to fill over the dome with loose (dry) vermiculite or perlite.
    Good luck and keep asking questions, there are plenty of folk willing to give help.
