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 granule size?

    Hello,

    This is my first posting. I live the Buffalo, New York area and am in the process of ordering vermiculite. Does the size of the granule matter? I have an option of large, medium, or fine. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Re: vermiculite granule size?

    I would think the coarser the better, since you are trying to get air spaces between the concrete matrix. Also, the big chunks might be less dusty.

    Be sure it's the agricultural vermiculite, not silicone treated for use in domestic insulation. The silicone makes it hard to combine into insulating concrete.

      Hi Rob, I have just poured my foundation and topped it with 100mm vermiculite which was graded as "#3 exfoliated vermiculite". It says on the 6Kg bags that it is for horticulture and insulation and the company seels heaps of it to people such as us for our ovens.
      A picture of the mix is on; fornobravo.com/forum/f8/neills-pompeii-1-a-2005.html
      It was mixed between 5 and 6 : 1 with portland cement and has set off nicely over the past week
