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.

  • Weatherproof render/stucco

    Hi guys,

    I'm making a pretty basic oven and have just completed my insulation stage. I would really appreciate some advice on the making my render/stucco weatherproof. Are there any additives that I should include to give it good protection against the elements? Also, are there any advantages in making this final layer extra thick, or would a 10mm render suffice?

    Thanks for all your help over the journey FB gang!

    I do not have an answer to that question but I personally am counting on the liberal coats of exterior paint to protect it from the weather.

      After the three coats of stucco (scratch, 2 top coats) after it cures it should be weatherproof. I painted mine with exterior latex and its been fine. With thick insulation there's no heat transfer from inside to the stucco to degrade the paint.

        Iv been told something called DryBond would be great after the first coat of stucco but before you color or last coat. I am still having a hard time finding it thought... Iv been looking for a waterproof substance as well...
