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.

    Re: build in the winter

    Hey Sumu,

    You can build in the winter, but if any cement or mortar that you place will freeze with in the first three full days (as in 72 hours) you will want to protect it from freezing. There are several ways to protect this stuff from freezing, but the basics are to cover with an insulating blanket, and add a heat source. It doesn't need to be warm, just can't freeze.

    If the cement freezes before the majority of the moisture is cured out of the cement, it will expand, and crack the cement - now turning to concrete - and reduce or eliminate any strength in the concrete. You don't want it to freeze.

    I started my WFO build last spring, and had a few cold nights to deal with, and did cover the fresh concrete to protect from freezing. It can be done, and it adds a little bit of work... Your choice...

    Good luck with your build, and be sure to send in pictures!
