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.

  • Concrete Slab Weight Load

    Hi,

    I have a question that im hoping someone can help with.
    I want to build a base to raise my oven on , hoping to build a few pillars of bricks with a concrete slab on top and then build the oven on that.

    My question is , how thick of a concrete slab will I need to cast to be able to support 300-400kg ??

    We suggest a 3.5" (90mm) support slab of rebar reinforced concrete when it's supported by masonry walls on three sides. With less support, you may want a thicker slab. You say "a few" brick pillars. How many? How big? Where positioned?

      Have you considered piling instead of a slab to support your pillars?

      Get a post hole digger, dig down 4 feet.

        I did what you're considering. I have my 3.5 inch slab supported by 4 pillars. I have them a little towards the back, centered under where I thought the center of gravity is. I used a couple more re bar, particularly over the pillars to counter any "punch-through" of the pillars. Just use the re bar to transfer the load from the pillars out.
        I'm within a few hundred pounds of my final build weight and with me up on the slab walking around it doesn't flex or crack at all.
