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.

  • Hearth slab pour - problem - not adhering to cement backer board base?

    Hello,

    I just poured my hearth slab yesterday. I used a pretty flat surfaced cement board as a bottom base (instead of plywood) for the concrete.

    I took an end form off and it looks like the concrete did not adhere to the board. Did I jump the shark in my concrete mix/pour? The day turned into a pretty hot one (after a cold spring, who'd have guessed the temp would soar to near 90?). I did pool water on top of it after it set to keep it cool/moist.

    The hearth slab and base are pretty heavily rebarred.

    And upon further inspection, note to self - the cement board I'm using has a rough side and a smooth side. The smooth side is as smooth as a baby's you know what.

    If I want mortar or cement to stick to it, use the rough side not the smooth side.

    Meh. Maybe I can recycle some of it for the enclosure.

      I dont think itll be a problem as the cement sheet or ply is only there as form work, once set the slab should be self supporting.
