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.

  • bottom of slab won't be level

    First things first, my build is an ugly wreck so far (and I haven't even started the dome), though I believe it will work out basic ally fine in the end. I'm about ready to pour the hearth slab, but due to too many mistakes to mention, I had a hard time levelling the bottom tray for the slab. (The top of the form is level). Does it matter if the bottom tray (and bottom of the slab) isn't level? I figure if the tray is way off level, the whole thing could collapse when the concrete gets poured, but I don't think it's nearly that bad. I used 6" wide boards for the legs, so it should be pretty darn stable. Any other concerns?
    Here's mine:

    Jim, as long as you have the substructure solid and the form is tight, level at the top and won't shift during your pour, you'll be fine.. Make sure you have steel in the pour and that the steel ends up in the concrete. The concrete has compressive strength and the steel has the tension strength. Do your best to get the top of this pour as flat as possible to support your insulation and then your dome. A little more time to get it flat will save you time later.

    You’ll be fine!
