Grout Stop - 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.

    I have seen quite a few posts with questions about how to stop the concrete from going down all the block webs and decided to post this. This is what we use on the job site its very inexpensive (not cheaper than already empty concrete bags or newspaper for that matter) but its an alternative for those who choose to use it.

    Here is the product description, most HD or LWs have it or of course your masonry supply.

    Grout Stop ™
    Designed to prevent grout from falling through block core while maintaining positive bond in mortar joint.

    Constructed of strong, non-corrosive 1/4" square polypropylene monofilament screening. Available in 2", 4", 6", 8" and 10" widths. Provides improved bonding of masonry anchor in hollow block construction. Available in 100 foot rolls. Sold individually or 50 per case.

    The pic is actually misleading, when this is put in its between 2 courses and not covered with mortar as shown in the pic. The web is put in place then your bed joint goes on it then the block. For the oven construction putting it below the last course would give you (sort of) a bond beam all the way around the top under the hearth and key in the hearth slab to the base. which regardless of where you are building is a good thing...
