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.

    Im confused by the instruction for 5.5" base. If I add 3.5" pea gravel it only leaves " for concrete and rebar. Am I missing something? Clive

    Hi and welcome!
    Set your formwork so that you have 5.5" of board above the level of the gravel. Assuming you use 2 x 6's for the form, they should be more or less just touching the gravel bed for a 5.5" thick slab.
    Does that answer your question?

      Thx yes makes sense. Although 30 bags of mix at 0.5 cu.ft.per bag, over the base area of 42 sq.ft only has a depth of 4.25". Thx again. Clive

        IIRC, mine took 38 bags. Your problem was that you bothered to do the math
        Good luck!
