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.

    not sure that last posting posted -- I am attempting to calculate how much Portland cement and vermiculite I need to purchase. I have a 6 ft by 7 ft with a 4 inch depth. Need a 5 10 1 ratio -- any help?

    That sounds like 14 cf to me of vermiculite. Get some extra, maybe one or two cf if you can. A 5 : 1 ratio should need 3 bags of 90# portland. I dry mixed the vermiculite and portland by pouring the portland over the vermiculite and then mixing that. then add water to get oatmeal consistency.

      For every 10 parts vermiculite add about 3 parts water. I mix the cement and vermiculite dry first then add the water. You will lose around 20% in volume when you mix the water in so this needs to be accounted for.
