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.
When we demo'd the slab in our backyard to make our foundation, we found that chainlink fence was used as rebar.. If the difficulty it took to remove it was any indication, it works. We re incorporated it into our foundation, along with some rebar we found for the perimeter trenches. As far as the hearth slab goes, it's gotta be rebar. Whoops.. just re read your post and realised you werent planning on using it as rebar after all.. Wire mesh.. That'll work.
Just one note: If I were doing it again, i'd only pre-assemble the pentagon for the top, and lay the rest up as triangles. I had to re-cut a bunch of my polygons, and they didn't fit together as well as I hoped.
The saying goes that March "comes in like a lion and out like a lamb." Well, bull. In Ontario during the last week or two, we've had high winds, low temperatures, blowing snow over the ice that already had formed during one warm day. Generally dismal. The saying should read: "in like a demented lion, out like a snarling tiger." Geesh.

I will assemble with the triangle route and bypass the preassembly. After mortaring the tips of the triangles on the bricks, I tend to agree that the joint becomes stable quickly. So, I will assemble one triangle at at time. I'll take photos of these steps incase it goes well!!!
