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.

  • My mason put mortar between floor tiles and dome!

    So my mason installed the dome of my 2G80 today, but filled the gaps between the floor tiles and the dome with the high temp mortar. i know (now!) that this is not recommended, but is this a serious problem? Do I need to do anything about it? It's too well dried now that I've come home from work to get it out easily.

    Will the potentially different expansion rates just crack the mortar, or worse?

    Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    The mortar will probably crack before any serious damage occurs. Mortar is the weakest link in the construction.

    If you're really worried, tell your mason to cut out the mortar with a diamond blade. And stress that he should read the installation instructions.

      If the mortar only crumbles then I'm not too worried about it. I considered trying to cut it out, but the curvature of the dome would make that very difficult!

      thanks for the reply,
