Way to go Oventhusiast - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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.

    Now that is some great brickwork! Wow, she just looks like she is jumping at the thought of cooking.

    Take care in curing -- you are so close, I can taste it.

      Re: Way to go Oventhusiast

      Thanks guys, for the kind words! They are much appreciated!
      I'm currently misting the dome 2 or 3 times daily to get the refractory mortar as hard as possible before the curing fires (in a week or two)get underway.
      I'm a bit concerned about the vermiculite pad under the oven. It's still very firm but with all the building, misting, and rainy weather we've been having here in Boston Ma., the pad is soaking wet. Is this something I should be worried about or will it dry out with the fires? I'm planning to 'doghouse' over the oven and I want to make sure everything is bone dry before I insulate everything and cover it up.
      Thanks again,
      Best to all,

        It will dry out fine. The process of hardening concrete is called "hydration" for a reason.

            Hey Dmun,
            I hope you're right. I'm getting a little worried about the mortar
            getting hard. I stopped wetting it down because it seems a little weak at the bottom (the mortar). I covered it with a tarp because it's getting very rainy over here. I've got to 'just walk away' for now because I start to worry about things like that and then I start to loose sleep over it!
            And Christo,
            As far as the keystone goes, it's not that impressive. I was kind of rushing to get it done and it looks a bit like a crooked mosaic!! I will, however, post ALL of the photos at some point if I can figure out how to do a bunch of them at once without posting 900 pictures of Rina (see avatar pic) by accident! And thanks much for the compliments!

              The two-toned firebrick in the dome is the coolest! I love that.
