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.

  • Hinge pins? for door to Hearth Stand wood storage.

    (M) Hi, all, and particularly Paul who made advance preparations by installing some hardware into the concrete blocks of the opening for his wood storage.

    (M) I would like to also make that preparatory step as I'd like to include a door to help keep the wood storage area dry. My storage opening is not like Paul's (set in a corner) but a conventional orientation opening as most have. So, ... if I decide to round the top corners of the concrete blocks on the inside (just for looks) will that significantly complicate the installation of a door that opens out? ____

    (M) I assume that Paul drilled into the concrete and then used something like lead anchors to secure what seem to be gate type pin hinges? ____ but I haven't seen a door yet and assume he is still working on one.

    (M) If anyone has a door below, or if you are planning to include a door, please give me-us the benefit of your experience.

    (M) Thanks,

    Marcel

    I believe Paul ran bolts through holes in the block, from the inside, and secured them with nuts and washers on the outside. This would be better and stronger than a lead expansion anchor. I would do this to secure a wooden sill to the block, and then use conventional door hinges for the wood storage area door(s) than use gate hinges.

      that's exactly what i did, but i anchored the hex head of the bolt in the concrete core. one didn't work, so i'll use a stainless concrete anchor. this type is by far the best, IMO. you pound it in, and it has actual threads, as opposed to the lead type which just expand as the bolt's threads catch on the lead. i will attach a 2 x 6 and build the door off of that, just as you guessed.
