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.

  • Wood Storage Door vs. Critters

    I notice many builders have not included doors on their wood storage areas. I'm on the fence as to whether I should include a door.

    For those of you that don't have doors, do you have problems with critters wondering in there?

    I'd hate to be rooting around the wood and surprise something that has made a new home in the wood storage area!

    Re: Wood Storage Door vs. Critters

    I don't know about anyone else, but I plan on putting a door on mine. If the possums or snakes don't take root up in there, then my dogs sure will try. Also, the rain down here tends to come in sideways sometimes, so I'd need a door to keep the wood dry.

      No door on mine. Found a nice little mouse nest in there when loading in some new wood and rotating dry stuff to the front. We have the Hanta Virus here, so that got me a little worried...no way to attach a door at this point, and don't want to poison my wood...thinking about a trap.

        Drake,

        I'm designing a door frame/ jam as we speak. Your post is all I needed to convince me I need a door!

          There's not a door tight enough to keep out the pests frequently seen in my backyard - black widow spiders. Ewwwww.

            We have a few of those here in KY as well. Brown Recluse as well .
            The harmless snakes scare me much worse than the venomous spiders.

              I will be putting on doors for looks. As for critters, that and being 6'3" I decided to build a wood trolley out of the spare form lumber and lathe. That way I can pull the trolley out and easily get the wood, then wheel it back in. Hopefully I can complete that this weekend.

                  Ok, you asked for it so here it is. Remember it is not a work of art, just practical use of spare lumber. Well, that and $30 worth of Home Depot extras.

                  Not quite finished, not sure if I want to put a rail around it or not.

                    Wade, I like the design. Three such carts sized to split the storage area into thirds would allow for a very efficient use of the space. Heck, you could make the middle one a bit longer and integrate a "door" with a handle on it that occludes most of the opening.

                      It's perfect! Thanks for the idea.

                            Sorry to but in like this as a complete newcomer, but when I read this thread I was in fact thinking I'd store my wood so that hedgehogs and mice could get in and hibernate at the back of the stand. On the other hand we don't have any poisonous snakes of spiders around here - that might colour my attitude slightly.

                              Yeah, in my neck of the woods, we have 2 kinds of poisonous snakes, black widow spiders, scorpions, and various wasps/hornets. That and being being 6'3" made me decide I didn't want to have to crawl in and get wood.
