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.

  • Dogloo as a form

    So has anyone tried using one of the Igloo style dog houses as a form to build an oven around? To remove the dog house all it would take is a Roto Zip and a vacuum.

    My only concern in trying this is the dome height might be to high, the opening could be adjusted easily. Would appreciate in comments, concerns or rude remarks.

    Thanks
    JB

    This is true lateral thinking! I am seriously impressed.

    If not for the whole dome, you could use just the top bit for where it is hard to lay bricks (assuming the loo has got the right shape). Then there is no height issue.

    One worry (you asked!) could be that the dog will recognise the shape when the oven is ready ...



    Best wishes,

      I was thinking about you Dogloo idea, and I may have possibly improved upon the idea.

      Why not smear Vaseline all over the house, then several layers of tissue paper.
      Then, using newspaper and thinned out Elmer's glue, place 5 or 6 layers of paper mache over the top. After drying, the paper house should pop right off (thanks to the Vaseline) and could be used for the form. It would easily burn out on the first firing. And you would still have your Dogloo.



      The height could even be adjusted by cutting a dome off of the completed paper mache Dogloo and lowering it or raising it with some more paper mache "band aids"


      Just my thoughts.
      What does everyone think?

        Another thought...

        You could make the initial form out of chicken wire to exact specs.


        Then do the paper mache thing....

        Much cheaper, and a better result.

        I think this is what I will do.

          Dave, the opening to the oven will be smaller than the dogloo. Still, with careful cutting he might be able to put it back together again, I suppose...
