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.

  • Steel reinforcement in vermicrete

    Hi, I'm pouring my concrete deck tomorrow(I hope) on which will sit my vermicrete slab. Ive 2 questions around this.
    1. Does my vermicrete need to be tied into the slab its sitting on with steel? Im guessing the answer is no but would like some confirmation of this?
    I'm doing a 100mm concrete deck which is tied into the 4 retaining walls that the whole oven sits on. The vermicrete slab(125mm) will sit directly on this. However, the vermicrete slab will be enclosed on 4 sides by blockwork, so I dont have to shutter in the edges before pouring.(hope my explanation makes sense?)

    2. Does vermicrete need to be reinforced with steel/mesh?

    Thanks

    Richard

    No wire or rebar needed, or recommended.
