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.

  • Pouring Hearth Slab

    I am ready to pour my hearth slab which will be about 6.5 x 7.5 feet. My question concerns the gaps around the plywood and small gaps between the form and a few of the block. Do I need to fill the gaps with something, or will the concrete stay out of the smaller gaps?

    Re: Pouring Hearth Slab

    depends on the size of the gaps and the size of the aggregate in the concrete mix. If it's peastone, the the gap should be smaller than that.

      Duct or masking tape will fill any voids. It may not be necessary, but it's impossible to fix once sludge starts running down the sides of your forms.

        Thank you for the replies. I will use my favorite product in the world, (duct tape) to be safe. The concrete truck is due tomorrow morning so I'll post the results on my thread in the Pompeii Construction section. I very much respect both of you guys. Thanks again.
