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.

  • Travertine Patio & Tile Veneer

    I looked at concrete pavers and stamped concrete but nothing really compares to the look of natural stone. So we are looking at using the 1.25" thick Travertine pavers typically used for pool decks and getting matching travertine tile to veneer the seating walls, counters, and oven.

    Does anyone have experience with travertine pavers? I live in the northeast and have to deal with freeze-thaw seasons. I get different stories on unfilled vs filled for the natural capillaries from the dealers for te freezing winter situations. I spoke to a tech at Dupont regarding sealers and his recommendation was filled to avoid water expansion in the capillaries. I tend to agree and also prefer the look of tumbled and filled. Base will be crushed stone with a sand layer to move the water away.

    For the wall tile, the plan is to mortar the tiles butt together with no gap to avoid grouting. If we go with tile countertop rather than a slab should we grout the top?
