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.

  • ***Paint or Color the Stucco***

    Hi all,
    I am going to stucco my oven this weekend(if i dont go fishing sunday) and my question to you is, Should i mix color in the stucco ? or Paint the stucco ?
    My concern is mainly that if i mix color in the stucco and all the batches dont come out exactly the same color my dome will have four different shades of stucco.

    If I paint I will have all the same color, but will also have to repaint eventually, but i guess i also have the option of changing the color if its not to my liking.

    Or I could stucco and if it doesnt turn out well, I could paint after that,

    As you can see im kinda torn here and hoping other's and thier past experience's here can offer their opinion and advice.....

    Thanks all for your help

    Mark, I used an acrylic stucco and they mixed the color for me. I needed another bucket and they had me on record - both came out exactly the same. If you are doing it yourself, and use the exact same amount of dye, I don't think you will see a difference.

      I agree with Les pre mixed cant go wrong if you mix it yourself make sure to use same amount of dye in the same amount of stucco, I used a waterproofing material in a powder form, and concrete color dye work out the ratio of water and powder ,and mix the color in the water and add to powder and mix, the powder is called Sunnyside waterproofing at Lowes,here's a pic of the terra cotta color ,colors are not too many to choose from,check it you might find the one you likeor mix the powder plain white and paint after

            Yes the color is nice, but where did you get those tool holders?

              If you guy's blow the dust off of a four year old thread, odds are the poster will not see it. It's better to send a PM if you need a response.
