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.

    Four inches of concrete on that rock hard dirt in Werribee will be just fine, the ovens weight is spread over a large area.

      Hi Mars

      I'm in Werribee too.

      I'm assuming the concrete is already there and thinking it shouldn't be a problem, but I have seen small gauge reinforcing mesh used in patios. Do you have any idea what was used. The guys on this forum use quite substantial reinforcing in their foundation up to 12mm bar.

      You can reduce the weight if you are concerned by using hebel block and panel for your base structure like I have. It will substantially reduce the weight you are putting on the slab. eg. Besser blocks filled with concrete, or brick structure and then a concrete slab on top of that before your oven is started.

      Happy for you to come over and check mine if you have any concern. just PM me.

        Even if the reo is only 6mm there will be no problem, most members on this site are in the USA and have to contend with frost heave down to 4 feet, something Im sure we dont have in Melbourne......
