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?

    Hi, I'm about to start building the heart and I would like to know if is any difference between the two.
    Thanks.

    Perlite is a better insulator although once you add cement the difference is marginal. I prefer vermiculite to mix because it mixes up better than perlite and doesn't contain that fine irritating dust that perlite does. I find a 50/50 mix of vermiculite and perlite makes up a more workable mix than either of them alone.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      I found both in a plant nursery, and I think I will go for a 50/50mix.

        To do the heart, I thought I was supposed to mix the perlite with concrete, now I'm confused

          Cement is the grey powdery stuff. Concrete is a mix of cement, sand and aggregate

            you want portland cement for your mix-Type 1. you can get it at home depot/lowes.

            Mix it in large pans or wheelbarrow at about 6:1 (vemi/per to portland) I will have to look at the water required, but enough to make it sticky like oatmeal is how i did it. HTH

              I found perlite to be half the cost of vermiculite. YMMV
