Ash Dump - 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 think I posted this in the wrong place...


    I'm going to be starting my oven here in a week or so, and I have looked over the plans thoroughly, but no where does it discuss an Ash Dump. Other plans I've consulted have one, and I was wondering if anyone has created the space. It seems really useful, but...

    I think a couple people on the site have one, but most opt out of it. The word is that they get in the way. I don't have one myself, so I really can't comment on it. Doesn't seem to be too much trouble to just brush them out with a metal dustpan though.

      Viewed your oven progress photos and had a couple of comments. First you did a great job and certainly can take pride in a project well done.

      I noticed you stacked your firewood flush against a building(your home?). Unless you are located in a termite free area, this is never a good idea.

      On the insulation that you wrapped around the dome, how did you attach it, or does that insulfrax(not sure if that is what it is) simply stay pretty well where you put it?

      I like your idea of turning the blocks sideways in front. Wish I had thought of that prior to building my stand. Now i must figure a way to get the two probes(one in dome and the other in the center of the floor) easily outside the oven. The probes have a phone cord type extension on them and unless anchored will spring back inside.

      Is that chimney a 6" or 8" one? It appears to be drawing very well in either case.

      I didn't see a door for the oven. Did you build one yet?

      Again, good job,

      Jim Bob
