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.

  • Exposed Hardiebacker

    I will soon have my 1/2" Hardiebacker completely up and the metal roof installed. If I am unable to get my brick and stone work done, winter is closing in fast, can I leave the cement board exposed or still tarp when I am not using the oven? Joints will be taped and finished with polymer modified thinset mortar. I was thinking of rolling on Redgard but some sites say not to leave that product exposed to the elements.

    Thanks,

    David

    I also thought about stapling some 30lb roofing felt on the walls and removing it in the spring.

    Hardiebacker should be OK, I would not leave concrete board exposed though.

      Although the Hardibacker won't be damaged by water, you might need to spend extra time this spring cleaning it prior to application of the thinset for the stonework. I'd put a tarp over it just to keep it a bit cleaner...you don't want the thinset peeling up as you apply it because of too much dirt or dust accumulated over the winter.

        Thanks, Tscar.

        Thanks, Mike.

        If I do need to clean the hardiebacker in the spring could I used TSP like before painting or should I use a different product?

        Thanks,

        David

          My understanding is that the thinset needs a clean, dust free Hardibacker surface to "get a grip". I would think TSP will work well, I'd just be sure to give the cleaned surface a good water rinse to make sure there are no TSP phosphate residues left before you start spreading thinset.
