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.

  • What Do You Call This Thingy?

    I know I've seen them, but I haven't got a clue as to what they're called. It's the metal shaft that is threaded in the interior so that it can act as a female to a bolt. The shaft is then glued into a hole in wood, so that a bolt can be threaded in and out multiple times without damaging the wood.

    Help?

    I've never used glue in, the ones I have used in a few furniture building projects were simply called "threaded inserts" and "cross dowels". They are used for exactly what you describe. might want to try woodcraft.com, they sell alot woodworking hardware.

          I want to build a table that will travel a lot. I need to be able to take the legs off and put them on often.
