raining on cob - 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.

  • raining on cob

    I recently experienced rain, fortunately I had the oven covered but a sample peace of cob was exposed and when I squeezed it I discovered it crumbled! Will this occur with my oven if ever uncovered in a rain? Should I plaster the exterior to weather proof? Thank you for any advice

    Re: raining on cob

    We are making a cob oven at the moment. I have all intentions of rendering it, and hoping that it will make it somewhat weather proof.
    I've only gotten up to the first cob layer, though. I've still to add the straw insulation, then lastly, the render.
    We live in the tropics with a decent wet season, so the oven will get a good test!
