Advice on door design - 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.

  • Advice on door design

    I was kicking around some ideas with my dad tonight about how to make an insulated door. I want to make the outside out of wood, and was thinking of using vermiculite board for the inside lining. Has anyone tried this before?

    Hi Erni,
    many variations of door design are on this forum, the on I did is listed which works well. I have cast aluminium swing doors that seal against fibreglass ropes but are uninsulated at present. I plan eventually to use either a board or the let over superwool that I used in the pictures. See:

      There is a cloud over the safety of the insulating blanket, depending on what fibres it contains. While the blanket is sealed between the inside and outside domes if it is sitting behind the mesh of yor door, won't some of the fibres be free to escape? The Europeans have given it a "class 2 carcinogen" and they use a safer but more expensive product. I believe it is a problem to inhale rather than ingest.

        Hi Ernie,

        Here is the link to the thread for the door I built for the WFO. I used a sheet metal and copper to wrap a wood frame, filled with loose perlite. The door functions well, but now with a bit of history, some of the wood bits in the structure of the door are showing some signs of wear (the bottom wood is slowly burning away, the perlite leaks out a bit).


        Just a bit of background information for you to consider in your door design.

          Very nice, thanks. So much to consider. I actually just made an all plywood temporary door just to keep a bit of heat in overnight until I decide on my insulated door design
