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.

  • Dome construction/Gap Question

    In doing lots of reading beofre I begin construction I thought I read that there could be no gaps in the dome between the bricks.. But reading and looking ate the GREAT pics posted I notice there are gaps and people say they are not a big deal.
    I assume we want the gaps as small as possible but which is better.. no gaps or gaps with motar in them ... which is stronger?

    There is no denying that a gap-free dome is stronger, more efficient, and resistant to cracking, but building a hemisphere out of square blocks without gaps is an every-block-cut proposition. The pompeii is designed for amateur bricklayers, originally done without any cutting except for halving bricks. There are gaps, particularly as you get to the top of the dome. We've heard of them cracking, but never one collapse.
