Hello from Long Island !!! - 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.

  • Hello from Long Island !!!

    I am building a Pompeii oven and enclosed the dome in a gable house structure. The chimney is a terra cotta flue liner and is centered at the roof peak. The roof is sheathed in durrock, right up to the chimney. I am searching for advice on how to seal the chimney to the durrock to make it water tight. Can anyone out there give me some suggestions ???

    What are you planning for your roofing material?

      We had a professional roofer come out and put a tile roof on our oven. We also used a terracotta flue liner and butted the concrete board roof right up to the chimney. My joints between segments of the flue aren't the prettiest things, and made using the lead flashing he'd brought more difficult. Instead, the guy used a high heat caulk around the chimney, put a wooden layer on top of the concrete board that sat a couple inches away from the chimney, and added the tile roofing, which snugged right up against the chimney. Again, he caulked with the high heat caulk. He said it wasn't how you'd roof a habitable structure, but water wasn't going to get in there, either.

        I think there should be an enclosure around the flue tile, as these things get really hot, and if you're using standard shingles, the tar would melt close to the flue, and make a mess. The enclosure could support a chimney cap, for a more traditional look, and the shingles could be properly flashed, in the conventional manner:
