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.

  • First soldiers cemented

    Well, I have finally started after along Winter in Eastern US. I need some input. The first 7 bricks are exactly in the correct spot along the scribed circle, however, they are not perfectly vertical- off 1/16" in some cases. They are not perfectly level as well...off 1/16 to 1/4". Leave them as is or rip them out?

    (How critical is perfection for the first row?)

    Thanks,

    Patrick

    This is absolutely your choice. Any pile of bricks piled up in a roughly dome shaped mound will work, it is your decision how nicely you want to finish the interior. I don't think one sixteenth of an inch will be a show stopper: Sometimes the good is the enemy of the best, but sometimes the impulse to the best is a bar to any progress at all.

      Thanks. Perfection is something to aspire to, but rarely attained. I guess the use of more/ less mortar can help make adjsutements in the direciton of perfection. Glad to hear i treally doesn't matter- except that it all stays together...

        Patrick,
        just get those bricks mortared in place, around 2 days work. Keep them neat but don't worry about perfection because it is not important.
        Build and enjoy.
