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.

  • wait for mortar to harden?

    About to start the block stand tomorrow - If I use mortar to level the first course of blocks, do I have to wait a day for the mortar to harden before laying on the second? Or can I stack all 4 courses in one day?

    If I get the first course leveled correctly, does this mean I won't need mortar to level the other courses?

    The mortar will harden sufficiently for you to keep going as long as there is daylight.

      You can lay as many courses as you like, we generally go to 8 courses, then it gets too high to lift the blocks.

      No, there are specific blocks that are made to dry stack, even then they require a tweaking with a plastic wedge to get them level(ish) and plum(ish) but these blocks are made to be core filled with fine concrete and rebar to stabilize them.
