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.

  • Foundation / Stand - Raised deck floor

    I will be installing a Casa2G at the end of my deck which is 32" above ground level and have the following questions:

    1. Should I put footings at ground level rather than a slab, since wood will not be stored there?

    2. What suggestion for use at the deck floor level to support wood storage?

    3. What suggestions for non-combustable hearth extension in front of oven to cover wood deck?

      1. Should I put footings at ground level rather than a slab, since wood will not be stored there?
      Either way will work. Is frost heave a problem in Atlanta? If so, the slab on well-drained crushed rock may be easier than digging below frost line.
      2. What suggestion for use at the deck floor level to support wood storage?
      I just put in a pressure treated deck material floor at ground level on my oven.
      3. What suggestions for non-combustible hearth extension in front of oven to cover wood deck?
      This partly depends on whether you're running it past the building inspector. I'd think that for practical purposes a layer of pavers laid directly on the deck would work, but an inspector may call for a slab cantelevered out from the masonry structure as would be done in a masonry fireplace.

        I have a similar situation and I plan on putting footings at ground level and building the stand up to my concrete deck level which is about 5 feet higher.
