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.

    A friend of ours took this at Epcot.

    Very cool. I would guess these were cast out of something, but who knows. What I learned with my little 3-D facade adventure is that vermicrete makes a pretty decent sculptural medium. If I had seen these sooner, I might have had to imitate it...

    No doubt! That is an awesome idea.

          I guess I missed this being posted previously--thanks Les! Much better photos!

          Try it, TMan The only question I haven't answered for myself about how I would recreate this is what I'd finish coat it with--something heat resistant, and ideally, thin enough to be brushed or sprayed on. Or, I suppose with patience, one could do a skim coat of portland slurry and then go back and detail it before it cured.
          Anyway, it's very cool and it gives me about ten other ideas for stuff I'd do with vermicrete.

            Nice ovens.

            Vermicrete is so easy to work with I used it to sculpt the final shape of my oven before stucco.

              I think we'll end up doing something like this after all. My wife is afraid of trying to use the rest of the perlcrete to shape this up, and is inclined towards plaster. I suppose for getting the definition of the face that would be fine since that would be right on the outside. It would push the flue a lot higher though and then we'd have to worry about how we'd get the cap on and off confidently.

                My wife would like something like the old Mad Hatter drawings. I am trying to figure out how I might do this:

                It looks like I'd have to push the flue back and aways and build up a top hat, but I am wondering a good way to do the face. Any ideas?
