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.

  • Vermiculite or Perlite

    I'm sure this has already been answered somewhere, but I can't find it so I thought I'd just ask.

    I have a choice of medium grade vermiculite or coarse grade perlite at my local Home Depot. Which would be better?

    I plan on using it to insulate under my over floor and also to insulate over the dome (both as a mix with concrete and loose over the dome).

    Thanks,

    Shannon

    Re: Vermiculite or Perlite

    Perlite on its own is a better insulator, but once mixed with cement there is little difference. I dislike the the fine dust that perlite contains. It is an irritant if you inhale it (wear a mask) never have a problem with vermiculite re this. I can't explain why but if you are mixing with cement a 50/50 mix of perlite and vermiculite makes up a much more workable mix than either of the two alone, particularly if you are making a lean brew.

      Thanks. The Perlite is about $4 less per bag than the Vermiculite for the same size (2cu ft). Didn't know if the coarse texture perlite was better than the medium of the vermiculte, or vice versa. I don't think Home Depot carries it in store for very long each year so I want to go ahead and grab it while I can.

        You may be able to get it cheaper in larger bags (4 cu ft) from nurseries or hydroponics suppliers.
