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.

  • Framing Question - Kinda

    I'm in desperate need of cheap, temporary storage. I came across a chicken coop that I want to build but I'm not sure of the bottom frame.

    The plans are here: https://mail.google.com/mail/?shva=1#inbox

    You can see the horizontal bracing. I plan on actually putting in a floor - probably nothing more than some 1x6 or 1x8's tacked down since it isn't going to be permanent by any means. I'm pretty sure the flooring will dispense with the need for diagonal bracing but I'm not positive. Is the bracing there for anything other than to prevent racking?

    Thanks, guys!

    Your link just goes to the gmail homepage.

    If you need a temporary shed, keep an eye on craigslist. They show up from time to time, cosmetically distressed, but still perfectly sound.

      Hmm, stupid PDF.

      This one is to pics of a completed one - but the plan link is in the text.

      The Craigslist idea is a good one but it won't work for me - unless someone wants to throw in shipping. I can't transport very large items - my Corolla with trailer has limits. I don't want to pay a lot transporting because I'm saving for the eventual (I hope) big move. Tractor Supply is only a few miles away and Lowes is even closer (we don't have a mall or a Chick Fillet, but we have massive home improvement center and huge farm supply - go figure) so I can transport building supplies far more readily than an actual building.

        Conversely, posting the right link in the first place might be helpful. Name:  569abc953b85a20f831c20d273639fbe.gif

          I think that a standard grid of two-by-fours, secured with three inch drywall screws, and covered with plywood will be your best bet for the floor. What's in the drawing seems really flimsy, particularly if you're going to drag it around as a chicken tractor.

          I think your biggest challenge will be to get it waterproof. If possible, you may want to consider overhanging the fencing material over the side walls, to give eves at either end.

          Could be neat. Sort of an impromptu quonset hut.

              Thanks, guys!

              You know, I had thought of that on the way home today, Neil. I've even figured out the number of pavers and estimated the cost (Walmart's website is useless - but I'd bought one recently). I think I'll use the pavers as the foundation/floor (16x16 = roughly $98) and use a few 1x6's to keep it from racking.

              The overhang is a good idea - I was gonna end up with a few inches anyway. I think I can wrangle a few more.

              Thanks a lot - I really appreciate it!

Around here we can get piles of pallets for free... and you can fit a lot on your trailer..

                  Thanks, but I don't have a local source for pallets - believe me, I've looked. I couldn't even find one further afield. Same problem I have with Neil's 'tire as dog toy' suggestion - recycling is making it hard to find materials to recycle!

                  I had seen that link (and ScreenGrab*-bed it long since). I may build something like that someday - if I ever have a source of pallets.
