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.

  • squirting fire mortar into some cracks/voids

    so, it has been a couple of years since my build was completed. My buddy and I have been looking at some of the joints inside and have decided that I will have to climb in soon enough and squirt something in, or use a pointing tool and mush some stuff in what appears to be a void or crack. Basically, a place or two that looks like it really needs it.


    We have Atlantic Firebrick just north of town, that is where I got the more high tech supplies for my build, like the insulation, and the floor tiles. I did notice that they had other products like what I think I need for this job, but seem to have a memory of a small tub being like $60 or $120. I don't have any materials left from two years ago, so I guess I will have to let the wallet bleed a little.

    any thoughts?

    Tom

    See if you can find a product called "Fire-pak" it is a wet refractory in a caulk tube, should run 10-12 bucks.

      Tscar,

      I did a web search for the product you mention, but to no avail (do you have a link?). This stuff looks pretty good, and it seems to be more readily available: Fireplace mortar
