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.

    Hello,

    I have an issue with my chimney. I have not put the roof on my gabled enclosure yet, but when I do the chimney will exit right in the middle of the ridge at the top of the roof. In other words, the roof slopes down on both sides of the chimney. I am using a duravent, but all the flashings I see from Simpson deflect one way only, not down both sides. Has anyone dealt with this problem? Do I need to see a metal fabricator or can I get away with something else?

    Thanks for any input.

    I don't have the answer to your question, but duravent has phone support:

      Hi Fred,
      I had a similar situation with a slow combustion space heater installation. I got around the problem by sealing and rivetting an angled aluminium strip around the outer insulated metal sleeve and then moulding (through using a lead hammer/dolly) a piece of flushing lead to fit the contours of the roof tiles either side of the gable. It was then carefully slid down the chimney, dollied back to the metal (as it the hole needed to be slightly larger to fit over the sealed aluminium ring) and silicon sealed. Depending on what type of silicon you use, some will withstand up to 850° temperatures before failing.
      Hope this helps.

      Regards.

      Neill

        I love lead flashing - you can't do a classic slate roof without it. Unfortunately it's illegal in the US. The local junkyard once offered to sell me a bunch of used lead flashing (to melt for clock weights) if I paid cash, no reciept.

          Interesting, it is still quite legal over here and used here for roof flushing. Sorry for the mis information, but a silicon based rubber vent seal could also be used if you can find one large enough to accommodate the vent.
