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.

  • Sources for vermiculite and diatomaceous earth

    Anyone know typical sources for vermiculite (or Perlite) and diatomaceous earth other than home centers like Lowes? I'm thinking there must be sources cheaper than home centers.

    try garden centers and growers for the perlite and vermiculite, its used extensively in potting soil. Here in FL, diatomaceous earth can be found at any swimming pool supply store (which are found on nearly every street corner with pharmacies and convenience stores).

        I used this ebay vendor.
        The shipping is more than the product, but If you can't get it locally, it's an option. Remember, gas and vehicle miles aren't free either.

          My strong recommendation would be to look for farm supply houses. There are farmers in Ohio, right? Grace is the main manufacturer for farming perlite at least in Florida. I bought my first two 4cubic foot bags (for the insulating hearth) for $50 each. At the farm supply house here they were $9 each! I got 6 bags to do the dome perlcrete. Call around, you will not find perlite cheaply on the web, IMHO.

            Hi PaulB,

            Landscapers supply companies, the ones that cater to golf courses and nursery/greenhouse merchants carry it. You can also find it at hydroponics suppliers since it is used as a growing medium. Some, but not many, pool supply companies may carry it. Also try an insulation supplier for vermiculite.

            Cheers,
            Bob
