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.
It's a long thread, with nice detailed accounts of the build. Somewhere in there are discussions about bevels, angles, jigs for a wet saw, etc. I would also suggest searching for threads from Hendo. He was an early and excellent contributer to the forum. I don't recall where, but he offered many nice suggestions. Aside from an often used dome gauge (which is has become infamous), he has offered suggestions on brick cutting jigs and tips.
I used a circular saw and sprayed the cut and blade with water from a nozzle on the hose. I had the saw plugged into a GFI and the saw had a plastic motor case and handle. It cut very well and I survived but my rig was definately not UL approved.
When water contacts the blade it is slung outward away from the motor and it requires very little water. Use this method at your own risk!
I started out dry cutting but soon found very tough bricks. I thought I had worn out the blade but the water made it cut like butter.
By the way the Harbour Freight blades cut as well, last as long as blades that cost 5x as much from HD and L.
You can get a 3ft extension cord with a GFI built in and I definately would not have tried the above method without a tested and operating GFI.
