brick laying - 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 would advise against using and adhesive for building an oven. Although I don't know which product you are suggesting, I doubt it is engineered to tolerate the heat used in the oven.

    Also, the standard system proposed in the Pompeii plan is really pretty easy to do (because it is a masonry project, everything is heavy.... ) and we know the standard system works. After investing the time to build an oven, it builds confidence to know that when you are complete, it will work....

      A quick web search for "concrete adhesive" shows two types of products, a glue for concrete repairs, which mostly seem to be polyurethane or epoxy based, and a surface prep liquid for bonding new concrete to old. None of these things would benefit from 800 degree heat. Even if they were heat resistant, I don't think they would work on the variable thick/thin distance between bricks in most domes.
