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.

    Reading, thinking, and talking about building a wood-fired oven for quite a while now but this summer it looks like it will finally happen. The construction will be a family project at our cottage north of Toronto, Canada.

    On top of the usual challenges of sourcing materials in Canada and building a frost-resistant foundation to weather our winters we're building on an island so all materials have to be brought in by boat (and hand loaded and unloaded onto said boat). If that weren't enough we're only working with an inch or so of topsoil before we hit two layers of limestone for eighteen inches or so until bedrock.

    Can't wait to get started!

    Sounds like quite a location, and quite a project! Are you going to use a floating slab, or are you planning to go down to that bedrock?

      Thanks for the welcome, Daren.

      Our plan was to add four corner piers (about 6" wide by 12" long by the 18" deep to bedrock) to the usual foundation. This seems to be what works for buildings on the island. After seeing what sarah_h did with her oven in Ottawa the easier floating slab looks quite tempting.

      Open to any suggestions/input. Is this the best board with the forum for this discussion
