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.

  • Running in a green oven

    G'day fellers/Ladies,
    I've read in more places than FB, (yes I'm a philanderer/bitch), that new ovens should be allowed to cool before the next level of heat is applied. The only logic I can see in this is that some water vapour may return to the "dry" morter, and assist curing.
    So what is the real reason, please?

    Our oven was fairly well broken in before New Year; since then, a heck of a lot of water has been added as insulation went on. It's had gentle burns along the way, and "soot-free" burns the last two nights. Still covered by a tarp, and the water driven off is still pretty amazing. A full-on firing is still a few days away.
    (Just re-read that, and still wondering how many times a goose can use the word 'still', and still be allowed to post. Sorry.)

    The shell has one hot spot, so will have to cut it open and add vermiculite.(Bugger!) Progress images show that that patch got only 1" of blanket, and my guess is that the vermiculite fill missed that section.

    More questions to come, but enough for now.
    Jeff, still the Luddite.
Working...
