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.

  • Wall locked pavers - a problem?

    Hi all,
    I am planning a 500 sq ft. clay 4 x 8 brick paver patio which is surrounded on three sides by a block retaining wall. If I install the pavers in sand, do I need some type of expansion joint to protect the walls/pavers and if so what could I use?
    Thanks,
    Dave

    Dave,

    You can butt your pavers directly against your wall blocks which make for the perfect patio retainer. If you want a border it will be more work, but you only have to do it once. Depending on your field pattern, you're still faced with cutting 45's for the front of your oven. Below are some pics of my nearly completed patio, one with a contrasting border (contoured to the the split-face block under the oven base) and one with a matching border butted up against the house (smooth like your blocks).

    Your oven and kitchen has turned out beautifully. Can't wait to see what it looks like with your pavers in!

      Thanks John,
      I need to polish the countertops, stucco the walls, and then I'll lay the pavers. I really like yours. It looks like you took the time to bevel the edges of your cuts. Very precise work.

      We chose a more rustic paver with a cobbled edge thinking that we won't need to be so perfect. Coincidentally, the pavers on the display board above ours look a lot like yours.

        Dave,

        I like your brick choice, which will go nicely with your countertop color. The cobbled edge is going to make it SOOOO much easier to install! The bricks I chose came beveled already, and only the angled or half bricks I made needed beveling. With your skillset you should make quick work of the install, just make sure you slope the patio to drain properly. Looking forward to seeing your countertops once they are all polished up.

        John
