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.

  • Recipe for lightweight strong oven base??

    Looking for recipe and ratios to mix vermiculite and concrete for a strong yet lighter oven base for which to put base cooking level brick then build dome oven on top from there.

    I've Heard it may be 5 to 1 ratio vermiculite to concrete

    You might want to clarify that question with a little more of an explaination of what you plan to build. 5 to 1 vcrete is recomended as an insulation layer for an oven floor. That is, if it is placed on top of a structural layer. It has plenty of "compressive strength", but no "tensil strength".
    I don't care what folks say behind my back........They are either braggin' or.......lyin'

      Gulf has it right - you can't suspend a "vermicrete" floor on top of a U-shaped base.

        My vision is to Place the vermiculite and concrete Mix the base on this wooden structure. From this base I will layer of my firebrick base and then build up the firebrick dome
