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.

  • Curved Cuts in bricks

    Hello

    I am about to start building my dome on the weekend and cant quite work out how people of this forum get so nicely curved cuts in their floor bricks.

    can anyone offer suggestions?

    It's easy to nibble away the edges of the brick with a tile saw, especially for outside radius cuts. The bricks are fairly soft.

      I second deejayoh's reply. Also, you only need about three cuts to get a pretty round looking edge.

          cut off in angles smaller and smaller as you get round and rounder trust me they always look better in pictures you will never see the edge anyways get them close and move on better places on the build to ponder over like the angles on the dome bricks

            I wondered the same thing and just decided to make straight cuts anyway, splitting the diff between the front and back edges.

            Pretty hard to tell they're straight cuts from the photos, and you'll never see them in the finished product anyway.
