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.

  • Wire mesh in foundation

    Hi Folks,

    Getting nearer to starting the foundations and am looking to acquire all the materials. From the pompei plans it states that i need wire mesh as well as the rebar. Ive managed to source rebar from a friend, but Im wondering just what is meant by 'wire mesh'. Is there some sort of construction grade wire mesh that is meant to be used? Or would something from this website be any use?
    Wire mesh, chicken wire, wire netting, and chain link fencing :: Mesh Direct

    Thanks for any help.

    Cheers Ross

    Known technically as WWF or "Welded Wire Fabric". Usually on a 6 inch grid although you can sometimes find the 4 inch grid.

    It is typically used to control cracking with the rebar providing the strength. You can do without it but it is very useful for holding the spacing and vertical placement of the rebar in the slab (and it is cheap).

        Another good source for the wire mesh material that you guys seem to be looking for might be,

        Belleville Wire Cloth Co., Inc - Woven Wire Mesh | Wire Cloth | Stainless Steel Wire Mesh | Wire Cloth Strainer

        belleville Wire Cloth,

        THey should have what you guys need, they carry a ton of meshes on their website in all sized shapes and alloys. Just thought I would throw you another source so that you can compare pricing with what you are already using....

          Ohhhhh boy. I must have overlooked that tip. To late now, hopefully our dense clay soil and lack of freezing temps will show me some mercy.
