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.

  • Flue liner/Chimney air space

    In the plans it says to leave a 1/4" - 1/2" airspace between the flue liner and teh bricks for expansion purposes except in the case of structural integrity.

    My question is - I'd love to use some of the base (or top, if that's better) bricks for flue support, but I don't want to mess with the laws of thermodynamics. What did everyone else do?

    Thanks!

    Hi Amber,

    What type of flue pipe did you decide to go with? I used clay pipes and was told to leave a 1"-2" air space between the pipe and the brick chimney. I believe 2" is code here. As far as the base is concerned I used fire bricks for a base support cut to fit and then cemented the pipe to it. I have pictures of this in my album.

    Thanks, I hope this helps, and good luck,
    Bill,
