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.

  • Chimney - to line or not to line?

    Ok, so I have been reading the back posts about chimneys, but I'm one the wiser as to wether I should install a liner, or even have a pipe stiking out of the top at all!

    Dmun - thanks for the tip about acids damaging metal liners. But really what I need to know is if my existing brick chimney can cope/act as a chimney in the sense that people here would understand?

    Could these acids also damage a brick chimney, or would it be best, if not using a liner of any kind, to spread fire cement over the inside of the chimney?

    I also thought that a nice rectanglar terracotta pipe from a builder's merchants cold do the trick. I have seen these used to transmit air from under the suspended floor of a house to the outside airbrick.

    Presumeably a flue would have to be sealed/fitted securely at the bottom of the chimney - but if there were no flue, doesn't this negate the problem?

    PdD

    ps, something like these?

Working...
