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.
I didn't use one. I thought I might make one when the time came, but I never got around to it because things went pretty quick once I got going. On the higher courses, I just stook a cinder block on it's side to support a course in prgress. worked pretty well.
Like Paul in Rockwall , I also didn't use one even though I finished Hendo's oven (the member who introduced this tool to the forum) after he died. If you check out my build, I used a quarter section of a 40" plywood disk to shape my dome which all happened in 2 days. I don't feel that the dome needs to be so precise nor perfect semi circular to perform well or best, so long as it is close and structurally sound.
I even stood up on top of my dome as soon as I placed the final keystone into place and it will stand almost forever.
This 'indispensable tool' increases your build time considerably and serves no real useful purpose but do a search to evaluate it for yourself, There are many postings and several threads with them in.
