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.

  • House Brick Arch

    Gentlemen,

    Been lurking around here for a bit now and like most others have finally taken the plunge.

    In an effort to blend in with my house and what I am proposing I want to use the same bricks as my house for a veneer around the base block work and the chimney.

    So, the inner arch will be out of firebricks but I am wondering if I can build the outer arch and chimney from extruded house bricks (the ones with holes in them).

    Thoughts and ideas welcomed.

    Cheers,

    vanoontour.

      Gudday
      Yes I built my entrance way from a mix of brick commons (solids) and house ( extruded with holes). Its been in use for 2 odd years now with no probs and only a very small crack between the inner arch and entrance. Its only on the inside and not external and noticeable. Yes I did use the homebrew mortar on the entrance as well.
      I also used layers of brick on the edge of the stand to caste my top and hide the insulation layer.. you don't need formwork that has to be removed later.
