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.

  • year old portland

    I purchased portland to make home brew last August, and I'm just now getting to the point where I need to use it. The bag was in my garage over the winter, and it's still mostly powdery, with lots of 1-3mm granules. I made a batch with it, and the bricks stuck well. Is there any reason why I shouldn't use it after sitting for so long?

    If it's powdery it's ok. If it's lumpy it's not. Moisture from the air can make it go off if it has ben sitting for ages.

        I took one of those tile laying for dummies classes a few years back. The instructor implied that grout and pretty much all portland based products have a shelve life. I don't know how true that was as I have used really old grout and it seemed to work just fine. But... if you have any lumps in the cement - just toss it. The cost is squat.

          Portland cement is hygroscopic. Even if it is still powder it may be no good. Trash it, especially if it has been sitting on the floor.

            What about the lyme? Any shelf life on that? I kept them both on a plastic sheet in my garage in NY.

              Unless the lime was in an air tight container trash that too. The only good lime that old is lime putty sitting under water...but we won't go down that road in here right, T?
