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.

  • Need For Footings Or Slab

    I'm planning a build at a summer cottage in NH and would rather not have to pour a slab. Does anyone have any experience with digging down a foot or so, placing and tamping gravel and then finishing with a 2 inch layer of sand? I installed a stone pathway in this manner and in the winter the snow plow goes over it, so I know it's fairly stable.

    Thanks for your help..

      I poured two footings on a substanial monolith (hard limestone) in my back yard. I anchored the footing to the rock with rebar by drilling 6 inches or so into the rock and inserting a 4 x 12" sections of rebar (4 on each side). I reinforced the footings with rebar, built the froms and poured 8" of concrete in the forms. My rationale was that the monolith on which the foolting is poured is far more stable than a slab prepared on regular ground.
      For my side walls, I used solid concrete lanscape blocks (4 x 12 x 6) purchased at Lowes. They were more expensive, but I liked the look and it saved a lot of time and effort becauce you put together with landscape block cement using a caulking gun.
