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.

  • oven floor base sand

    i poured the hearth (man that vermiculite is strange - while it is strong in compression, it is quite crumbly!)

    anyhow, i am going to set the floor bricks tomorrow, but first need to trowel on the 50/50 mix of fireclay and sand. the instructions call for fine sand. is all-purpose okay? i have some on-hand, and have trouble finding anything different.

    thanks!

    In Oz we'd call it washed sand, but I presume it's the same thing. It's a clean pale grey(ish) colour.

      Any sand is fine here. Play sand from HD, or the stuff from the brickyard for making concrete. You just want a flat non-combustible layer under your floor (your vermiculite concrete layer is unlikely to be pool-table flat.)
