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.

  • insulation up to chimney?

    I was wondering if the insulation (vermiculite) can go up to the outside of the Duravent chimney? would it be best to box it in and leave a few inches around it or fill it?

    thanks

    Dave,
    The Duravent is already insulated. You can box it in and build a masonry chimney, its just personal preference, however, you could use cheaper chimney pipe than the double wall stainless if you are going to enclose it. The stainless is purpose built to be exposed and stay shiny and pretty.

    Nice work on the anchor plate. I ended up going for the stainless chimney also since I couldn't find the clay chimney flue pipe here in SoCal.

      Thanks for answering, i realize the duravent is insulated, but was wondering if people run loose insulation right up to it or some code requires clearance for the vent pipe itself.

      thanks on the plate, not as nicely done as some i have seen here, but since i am going to be enclosing and putting on a roof i am not too concerned with that.
