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.

  • What type of mortar for decorative arch?

    What kind of mortar should I use for the decorative arch? I assume that I don't need to use refractory mortar. It looks like there are different types of standard brick mortar, and I was wondering which I should use.

    My intended end result is to look something like TheBadger's arch:
    PhotoPlog - Insulation

    Thank you,

    Stephen, this might be a little late, but many people have succesfully used standard Type S mortar for the decorative arch.

      Thanks, Daren. That's what I ended up getting.

      I knew this was a really basic question, but I didn't want to do a lot of work only to find that I chose the wrong product.

      Anyhow, thanks so much for responding!
