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.

      Re: Removing Forms

      Toby-concrete needs moisture to cure to full strenght. The underlying bonding is a chemical hydration reaction(hydro/water) It is important to keep it moist for at least a week. That is when most of the reaction takes place. But thirty days is even better. Leaving forms on traps in the moisture. That is good for strenght. But if you leave the forms on for a week, its a bear to pry them free. So masons usually pry forms off after a few days but keep the project moist by spashing some extra water on it each day and covering with plastic. I usually see this done on concrete slabs and walls-(But not on block or brick work--wonder why?) Your can remove the plastic while working and cover each day when you are through. Added bonus it protects your work from the night time rain showers. Good Luck Gloast

          Re: Removing Forms

          The forms also get harder to remove the longer they are left on. In normal concrete construction it is rare for vertical form work to be left on for more than a day, for horizontal form work more than a week. Concrete does not cure in a linear fashion. It hits better than 50% in 2 days and 80% in a week, with (nearly) 100% being reached in 28 days under ideal conditions.
