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.

    I've seen a design where the rebar for the hearth just sits on the blocks for the stand and the cement stand is poured into a frame that is inside of the blocks for the stand. The insulation layer is poured over top of it and the oven built on that. This keeps the oven completely seperate but supported by the stand. Is there any advantage to this system?
    I live in a colder climate, gets darned cold in the winter. With this floating hearth design, it seems like I should have less worries about frost and a shifting slab below... or maybe more? What are your thoughts?
    Also, just for economics, rather than using rebar, I have some old steel posts made of T-Bar, much heavier than rebar. If I were to go with a floating hearth, I'd use these for the support. I would think that over time, the rebar would start to bend....
    My concern is trying to ensure that I don't have a frost issue over time. The slab foundation is 6" plus and heavily reinforced with rebar. The stand will likely be cement block finished with mortar and stucco.
