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.

  • 3G_'s Build

    The base is nearly excavated. Its 1900mm wide 2100 deep with 350mm deep and 300 wide footings. Ill pour the slab about 150mm thick with 12mm rebar in it and SL62 mesh.
    No frost line here in Adelaide to worry about, but the clay soil is fairly reactive.

    Wow! That is a footing.

    I had a close encounter with a pickaxe this weekend, too. Glad it's over.

    You're in good company over there in Adelaide. I've met some good people on this list over there and I'm proud to call them friends.

    Welcome and keep the pics coming.

      Have put some steel in, need to get some proper stands for the reo. Not the tidiest but should be strong enough, ended up being 500 deep footing with 150mm thick slab. Next job is to wheelbarrow 2 cubic metres of concrete in.

        I spent the afternoon pouring the foundation. 1.8 cubic metres of concrete from the truck via wheelbarrow down the side of the house. Wasnt too bad, about an hour by myself.

              Im getting the blocks in today and have to make the decision on the bricks. The cheapest i can get fire bricks is $3.30 each, red clay bricks are $0.70 each. I was about to go the clay bricks then pulled out at the last moment, still unsure!!

                  They are solid, 230x110x76mm.
                  Bit more progress today. Instead of a lintel i notched out the blocks and put two 1/2"rods inthe bottom and 1 1/2"rod along the top.

                      I'm not to sure about that. Two pieces of two inch angle iron has a butt load more shear strength then rebar. 3G - did you run any calc's on the weight that this approach can support? It's hard to imagine the amount of weight, until you start dumping multiple bags of mortar, more bricks then you thought, and the final finish. This is just the static weight - you will be on top of it moving around.

                      Just a concern.

                        Yeah, i havent done any calcs on the forces being applied. I will definately beef up the rebar or go the lintel approach.

                          maybe, les has a valid concern, ? Im sure you could slip angle iron in or even build an arch under the opening for additional support ?

                            I think the lintel detail you are showing should be more than strong enough. Pull the bottom bars up a bit so that you get at least 1 inch of concrete under them. These bars should also be either bent down or horizontally into the walls at the ends for 12 inches or so.

                              I agree with Neil. Two half inch bars on the bottom should be more than strong enough as long as you bend them down into a wall.
