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.

    Hi All

    My oven is more or less finished and is firing nicely, so time to think about building a door. I will probably will go with vermicultie sandwiched between sheets of aluminium or similar.
    I've read a few different posts where people refer to various types of "ballast" that they are using in their doors - rivits, washers and the like.

    Can someone explain the purpose - is it as simple is giving the door some weight so it stands upright?

    Thanks All.

    I made my insulated door exactly as you describe, minus any form of ballast. I dont see the need, its 2 1/2" thick and stands on its own. Maybe it is the 1" aluminum framework I built under the outer aluminum skin that gives mine a bit more weight and makes it less tippy.
