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.

  • Back of arch.

    I haven't started my build yet but I like to try to plan ahead! Do I need to cut the back of the bricks which forms my arch to accommodate the dome as it rises or is it ok to butt the dome bricks to the arch bricks? If it is better to cut the back of the brick is there an easy way to measure them or is it a case of using my eye?

    It is not necessary, but it makes it easier to build the courses that transition into the arch.

      No eye needed just a pencil and a IT.

      Attached is a picture of Utah Beehiver's build. There are many good ideas found on this forum: here is a link to some of the best.http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f2/n...res-15133.html

              Bo,

              I was not the pioneer on tapered inner arch. It is well work the effort. Go to this link by Gianni Foccacia. I studied GF's extensively to make sure I understood the concept of cutting bricks for a tapered arch. I do have quite a few pic in my picassa album that shows the sequence too. Feel free to ask any questions.

              Good luck with your wfo endeavor..............

                Hey Bo,

                There's an easy way to determine the angles of your inner arch so that it matches your domes inner profile. An added bonus is that it also identifies the optimum distance from center to place your inner arch.

                The accompanying photos should explain how it works, but the arch's lower inside angle is derived from the top of the 'arch' template, and the arch's upper inside angle is identified by pulling a string (red line) to the top of the brick just outside the dome.

                There's some more photos on my build thread OctoForno, but if you have questions, just holler.

                John

                  I'm a pictorial type of guy. Pictures in the different builds gave me a path to follow. I thank all those whom posted many pictures. The builds that had albums that could be easily clicked thru showed me the most. As soon as I have time to figure out how to create a album that can be easily clicked thru, I will post my build pics to also help those whom are pictorial as myself. Good luck on your build.
