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.

  • getting closer...

    Today I finally got ready for pouring the footings - which I'll leave until next year (next week)...

    Attached a shot of the round footing arrangement, with twin pieces of steel mesh in position at the top and bottom position. I plan to have a slab thickness of 125 mm. (Engineers: pls yell if there's something seriously amiss that I can correct before the pour!)

    Have a brilliant New Year!

    Re: getting closer... Looks top notch!

    (M) Hi, Carioca,

    (M) I'm no engineer but I can see from your professional work that your foundation slab will be very strong if your concrete mixture has enough cement. The 125 mm converts to just shy of 5 inches and should be ample, particularly in view of the generous use of re-bar.

    (M) There is at least one builder on this forum who also constructed a circular footprint for the hearth stand, Chad, AKA janprimus :

    (M) Now if you can build the rest of the oven to such high standards you'll be the envy of the round slab group!

    Ciao,

    Marcel

        Re: getting closer...

        I'm not an engineer either but since I am in construction I have poured more than a few engineered slabs. That fine web of rebar looks more than strong enough for a brick oven and could probably be used as a helicopter pad in an emergency Great work imo!

          Re: getting closer...

          Thanks guys for the encouragement! Marcel, I've looked at your 'reference sites' and am pleased to know I'm not the odd one out with a round slab...

          Versachi, I don't know about the helipad - but I checked with our council what their policy was on barbecues. Turns out I can build one without planning permission or reference to them subject to certain distance (from boundaries) and height conditions; so Il forno del gallo chi canta is officially a 'barbeque'!

          I guess I'll have to cook the occasional suckling pig in it to maintain this claim :-)

          Cheers!
