Hi! - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community

Announcement

Collapse

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.

  • Hi!

    We started this wfo adventure earlier this year, but didn't get very far before the awful heat of this summer arrived. We managed to get our foundation up, but had to wait to pour concrete and the insulating slab for fear of cracking from drying too fast.

    Well, so far so go. We used today ( day after Thanksgiving ) as the day to start cutting brick and laying out our dome plan.

    We are using reclaimed firebricks, which create an issue on fitting nice and smooth. We are grinding and smoothing things as best we can, I don't think it will be an issue in the end.

    Having an issue trying to post pictures to this thread, so I may just put them in an album on my profile.

    Thanks for all the inspiration!

    Hello Lt

    We worked through the heat of the summer....It was very hot with quite a bit of dry wind to boot. But, we got it done.

    We cut our recycled firebricks and placed the halves so the cut side faces inward. No problems yet. Try to keep your planning ahead of your construction....It will save you correcting mistakes.

      Re: Hi!

      Welcome lt,

      When building my dome I think working in +105F southern california heat took more out of me than the moisture it sucked out of my mortar. You're definitely in a position to enjoy your build now that the wether has cooled.

      If you're not able to reduce your pics' image size easily (prior to attaching them), there are a number of threads here that show how to do this. I use MS Paint, which comes free with your Windows OS and is super-easy.

      Remember, as you plan your oven to include over-insulating it. You will be glad you did.

      John

                    14 days, two cities, now thats they way to travel. The Japanese way would be 14 days 28 cities, a photograph at every landmark site and back on the bus. At the onsen, be sure to spend a day strolling around in your yukata and geta's. Have fun.
