basic construction - 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.

    We have hired a mason to construct a structure to contain a newly purchased Premiio 2 G oven purchased from Forno Bravo. He assured us of his credentials and came recommended by a major local brick supplier, The oven is being bulit in Northern Utah which experiences cold and snowy winters.
    The builder poured a concrete basd that goes down below frost line but did not use rebar either in the base or as vertical support. He built a brick shell and is now filling the inside with cinder block to form the base.
    A-ha! Now comes to our house a neighbor friend whose career before retirement was masonry. He is disdainful of the construction and is confident that without rebar reinforcement our base and oven will not be durable. The mason initially stated he did use rebar but his worker later "confessed" that this is not so.
    Any suggestions on how to proceed would be appreciated. Is the rebar necessary?
