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.

  • mortar and cold temps -

    I'm sure this question has been brought up before but I'm going to ask anyway:
    Will below freezing temps matter for bricks just laid? We put a light in there and covered it with a few big cloths and a tarp. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
    It won't heat it up too much, will it?

    The low tonight is supposed to be 31.

    A light is no where close to causing a problem. DON'T LET IT FREEZE. It will turn concrete to crap.

      I have asked a similar question. I have been told that freezing temps and proper curing do not go together. That being said if you use tarps and cloths and low is only 31 the brick you just laid may not see freezing temps. I have also asked about using some sort of additive during freezing temps. This was not recommended because there is no such thing as antifreeze just accelerators to speed the curing process and these have the potential to weaken the structure.

        My oven will not be completed before the "deep freeze". Should I be concerned about freezing? I'm probably done until the spring. I haven't worked on it in three weeks so I'm assuming there shouldn't be an issue with freezing temps...
