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.

  • stuccoing the dome

    I'm about to insulate and begin the stucco process. Does stucco go directly onto the insulating blankets, or do we use the metal lathe sheets over the insulation and then apply stucco? It looks pretty difficult to use the lathe and still maintain the dome shape.

    metal lath... i used the sheet stuff that the brickies use, only because i had some. a lot of cuts and a lot of wire to shape it, tore up my hands pretty good.. i'ld use a couple of layers of chicken wire if i had to do it again.

      You also might give hardware cloth a try. It is what I used and by crimping/bending the wires of the individual squares one can cause the cloth to have shape. you will still have to cut some darts but one can make a shape that is nicely curved/rounded using the technique.

      It's been over three years since I started my build and almost three since I first painted (and the only time I have painted) the finished dome. I am hoping to paint it before the rainy season starts here.

      Hope this helps,

        Thanks for the response. I kind of figured it out with the lathe. I wish I had found something more flexible. I finished two coats of stucco before the rains hit for the last three days. The dome looks a little misshapen (kind of like the elephant man's head), but I hope to make some cosmetic improvements with the final stucco application,

          Hi MikEl,

          You would 1st attach the metal lathe to shape your oven then apply the stucco.

          Thanks,

            Thanks, Heidi, I kind of figured it out. I hoped there was something a little more flexible, but in the end made the lathe work.
