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.

  • Pouring the hearth

    When you are pouring the two layers in the hearth, can they be poured several days apart or do they need to be done wet on wet??

    Thanks,

    As the insulating concrete only has compressive strength, it doesn't matter when you apply it. Do it as your schedule permits.

      LOL

      I poured separately. I was more concerned about shearing due to heat than anything else. It all worked out well as I had to do the vermicucrete in 2 pours.

        Exactly as Dmun says. They can be separate pours. In addition, the insulated vermicrete layer does not have the same footprint as the structural slab (typically much smaller) , necessitating a certain amount of form work after the structural slab pour sets a bit, usually at least the next day.
