Mortar not sticky - 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.

  • Mortar not sticky

    I made home brew with fire clay from my cuttings. It did not stick to the bricks at all. If I buy fire clay will it be stickier.

    I had problems with the home brew not sticking well until I got it real wet, then it seemed to work a lot better. I'm sure the pros on the forum will be able to go into more detail. I encourage you to mix up a small batch and give it plenty of water to see if you still have the same problem.

      "Clay" from your cuttings is not "clay". Rather, it is just very small pieces of fired refractry which has already been vitrified. (i.e. changed on a molecular level...I think).

      In any event...it's no longer clay, and I'm sure has different binding properties than clay. I found homebrew mortar to be extremely sticky. To the point that I could place a motared brick against another at relatively close to vertical...hold it in place for a few seconds...and it would hold.
