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.

  • Vermiculite or Perlite

    Im almost ready for insulating layer. What should I use vermiculite or perlite. Someone said that perlite has more insulating value. Is that true? I thought I saw that perlite is cheaper than vermiculite at HD.
    Thanks

    I used half and half. I found it more workable than the straight vermiculite.

    1 part cement to 6 parts vermiculite and 6 parts perlite. Just enough water to make it workable. Mix the water and cement separately then add to the vermiculite / perlite very gently to avoid "breaking down" the particles.

    Make sure you get the coarse perlite.

      I couldn't find vermiculite so I used perlite. It was easy to mix with cement and worked well for insulation. It insulates my oven extremely well.
