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.

  • Covering dome with stone

    I plan to cover my insulated vermiculite/portland layer with stone keeping the dome shape. Can I mortar directly to the insulating layer or should I cover the insulating layer with diamond mesh first. Should I cover the insulating layer first with anything to allow slip or expansion?

    Re: Covering dome with stone

    Put metal lath over the dome first, then a "brown" coat of the base stucco (vermicrete in this dase). Let it cure before you put stone on it. The stone needs some structure to support it if you don't want it to compress your dome insulation. It will also allow for expansion of the dome.
