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.

    Hi I have been searching the forum for ideas on building the right floating pad for my oven. I live in Toronto so I have to contend with winter and frost.

    Most suggest either putting in a footing and wall down at frost level and then pouring the slab on the wall or a simple 5" concrete slab.

    When I did my garage pad a few years back the building inspectors wanted the outside perimiter to be 12 inches thick and then taper up to 5 inches for the slab itself. So I essentially end up with a 5 inch slab and a 12 inch perimiter depth. I built my last oven pad that way but it was on beach sand so I was not concerned.

    Here in the city I have clay and not to good drainage.

    I was thinking I would use the same design with the 12 inch footing design built into the slab. I was going to dig down, say 12 inches. Put 4 inches of gravel in the pit and then add an additional 7 inches of gravel on the original 4 inches keep the gravel 12 inches in from the perimeter. Then put to rows of rebar around the perimiter and tying that into a rebar grid within the slab section. Pour concrete.

    Does anyone see any issues with this design? I figure if there is any heaving it will have to heave the entire slab and oven structure.

    Thx
