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.

  • Securing Chimney Base Plate

    Hey everyone. I need some help with a Duravent baseplate. Our plan is to drill holes into the bricks at the top of vent transition and mortar bolts into it to hold the baseplate. We don't plan on tightening it down just give it some lateral support. Once the bolts are in and the mortar dries put down a thin layer of mortar, place the base plate into the mortar and over the bolts, then mortar over the flange plate and bolt it down lightly. I've seen others use notched bricks mortared over the flange and also using pieces of insulating blanket in between the base plate and bricks to give some cusion for expansion or movement but haven't found any info on how well they work afterwards. Has anyone had any problems or suggestions on the best way to do this?
