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.

  • need structional advise for vermiculite concretee

    I`m building a outdoor fire place, pizza oven, and grill smoker combo . All separate units . My problem is on the fireplace top I will have a large chimney over the whole back ,but I wanted to have a flat surface instead of a arch in front . the size is 4ft. by 2 .and a half ft. wide . This would be the open space with block and brick on the sides . I would like to pour a concrete slab in this space . . As regular concrete would not hold up to the heat I was thinking of using a vermiculite concrete base maybe over concrete board [ would`nt care if the board deteriorated after from heat ] pour this about 3 inches thick . Then for structure pour a top coat of high strength concrete over this with re-bar reinforcing . I will also have steel angle the long way under the form .
    Any thoughts as to weather the vermiculite concrete would hold up in this application . I could go with steel sheet 1/4 inch but the heat would still transfer thru and crack regular concrete I think .. Any suggestions would be welcome . I do not have access to vermiculite board or calcium silicate board .. That might have solved the problem ..
Working...
