Floor Tiles? - 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.

  • Floor Tiles?


    I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me with the following query. In the pompei oven plans it says that for the oven floor you can either use firebricks or '18" x 18" floor tiles provided with the forno bravo oven kit'. Are these special tiles or regular floor tiles? If so what thickness of tile should you use?

    Many thanks for any help in advance.

    Cheers Ross

    Re: Floor Tiles?

    A number of refractory suppliers here in the U.S. manufacture square 'tiles' of the same material used to make their firebricks. Here in Southern California I have seen 12"x24" tiles either 2 1/2" or 3" thick. The benefit of using tiles over firebricks is the reduction of seams in the floor. I believe the FB tile are made of the same cast refractory material as their domes.
