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.

  • Angle Iron size

    I'm building the hearth stand as per the instructions for a Pompeii. I cannot find 3/8" 2x2 angle iron long enough to span the opening? The local home depot and Lowes have 1/8". There are 3/36", but only 48 inches long. Is the 1/8 inch thick enough if I put extra rebar in supporting hearth?

    I would keep looking - seems a little thin to me. The iron is supporting your opening block and the weight of the hearth (in that area). Have you tried the masonry yards? They usually carry steel as well.

      Hey Mike, I had the same problem! Here's the thread I started on the topic; you might find some good ideas in there:

      I found some at the salvage yard, but maybe a local welder or metal fabricator would sell you some?

        I think I got mine from the local brick yard. I think I had to get 1/2 instead of 3/8 but it works.
