Finding the materials in the UK - 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.

    Anybody know of any national suppliers of the firebricks and mortar for my pizza oven in the UK?

    Many (most?) people (including me) seem to use Midland Refractories, but if you search a few of the forums you'll see a couple of other places too.

        Hi There,
        I have found 5 refractory suppliers in UK. Try Sheffield refractories. The cheapest I have found and also the nearest for me and probably to you. I am at work at the moment so do not have the list. Also try ebay, for firebricks (rare) and storage heater bricks (cheap), chimney flues, insulation etc. At least ebay may be able to susides your build.

          I have a thread on Barter/Exchange - I now have 50 storage heater bricks. Each about 230mmx220mmx50mm but in Hampshire, southern UK.

          They make a great hearth - and cut into 4 there should be enough to make a 90cm dome.

          I would ebay them, but it would be collection only. I'd rather they went to build a WFO.

          I can post pictures and weight on request.

              I found Sheffield refractories to be the cheapest including postage bny a big margin. it is worth calling all the suppliers as the most expensive was twice the price of the cheapest
