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.

  • Vent roof?!?!

    Hi All,

    I'm wondering if the vent roof where it joins the flue needs to be constructed of fire brick/insulating concrete or can I use a section of sheet steel bent into the shape of the arch and attached to the brick arch with fire cement?

    I think it will be OK or will there be issues with the steel expanding from the heat and then cracking the fire cement?

    Thanks

    Rob

    You can in fact make your entire entry/vent out of metal. They do expand at different rates, so you may want to make your masonry/metal joint somewhat flexible. Most people use some kind of masonry anchor and bolt as the interface, instead of a rigid mortar.

      Great, that's just what I wanted to hear!
