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.

  • Finishing dome

    I have about 6 courses up so far. I am deciding on which way to finish the dome. I like the simplicity of a sand form. Once the sand is removed can I then fill in the gaps with mortar from the inside or will it not stick? Do I need to do it for other than cosmetic reasons? I am more of a functional guy than a cosmetic one.

    Re: Finishing dome

    I used a plywood disc on a jack. I first saw it on Karangi Dudes Build.
    It can be jacked down allowing for cleaning and touching up on each row. Here is what my disc looked like after the fact.
    In my opinion the mortaring should be completed from the top. It is stronger and a heck of a lot easier than tuck pointing from inside.
    I don't care what folks say behind my back........They are either braggin' or.......lyin'
