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 set the rebar frame for the hearth slab on small blocks of wood (about 1.5".x2"x2") to get them half way up the slab. Is it okay to have the wood blocks set in the concrete slab, or should I use something else?

    Also, since my block stand came out ugly, I had lots of 1/16"-1/8" gaps between the stand and hearth slab form, most of which I calked. Was this overkill? Will concrete seep through a gap like that? There's more between the bottom tray of the form and the inner block stand. Should I calk them, too? Or can I just extend the plastic sheet to cover them? Or should I not worry about gaps like that? What's the largest crack that concrete won't seep through?
    Here's mine:

    We need Pictures to understand what you are talking about.

      You will get some bleeding through the gap, nothing to worry about (I assume you are using a standard mix).

        You should use little concrete squares that have the re-bar ties coming out of them and not wood blocks. They cost about $0.30 each. A little duct tape should seal up the small gaps.
