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.

  • ***94 lbs.***

    can anyone tell me why Portland comes in a 94 lb. bag ? Why 94, not 100 not 80 Just curious if there is any special reason ?

    The info I found says that it is 1 cubic foot. Sounds like a reasonable number. Interesting question.

      I think it's the amount needed to produce a cubic foot of concrete, after the needed aggregates are added. It makes mason arithmetic easier.

      It's the sort of thing that makes metric cheerleaders pull their hair out!

        I believe Les is correct, at least what he says agrees with what my concrete books say.

        Concrete was/is mixed by volume rather than by weight thus it was easy to have recipes that could be easily duplicated. The simple 1-2-3 mix is a good example. That's one cement, two gravel and three sand. Having one cubic foot per bag made computation of mixing larger batches easy. I'm sure glad one cubic foot of cement doesn't weigh more!

          maybe they should cnsider making 1/2 a cubic foot. At least a 47lb. bag would be a little easier to carry. Thanks for all the info though, I figured there was a good reason, just thouht it was an odd weight...

            Wiley,
            I think you have your mix formula incorrect!
            Over here we have 20kg bags of cement rather than the larger (pre metric) 94 lb bags and are a lot easier to handle.
            Incidentally, 94 lb bags are 24 to the ton, or one pallete!
            Our mixes as printed on every bag are:
            Cement: sand: Aggregate or 20kg bags/ cubic metre
            Structural cement 1 : 2 : 3 or 20 20kg bags/ cubic metre
            Paving 1 : 2.5 : 3.5 or 16 20kg bags/ cubic metre
            Render 1 : 4 : - or 24 20kg bags/ cubic metre
            Mortar 1 : 6 : +1 lime or 12 20kg bags/ cubic metre

            If you don't succeed the first time, try again and again until you get it right!

              Good catch Rastys! I transposed the sand and gravel. I should have written: 1 cement, 2 sand and 3 gravel.
