Just where is all this moisture coming from? - 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.

  • Just where is all this moisture coming from?

    OK, I'm on the first serious day of curing. I have an Ephrem 2061 pre-cast dome, so no mortar joints to worry about. It sits on a bed of lean mortar (as per manufacturer's instructions), which is on a layer of calcium silicate board above a 1" layer of floor leveller. The dome is covered in ceramic blanket. Now, it has sat there for months before the first firing, always kept dry, and yet the blanket is now seriously hot and damp. I have not taken the temperature of the floor beyond 200c. There are also some small (hopefully superficial!) cracks on the top of the dome. I'm glad I checked before adding more insulation over the top, but I can't believe that after so long there was so much moisture locked in. Then again, the climate can be pretty damp here...

    I'll bet its the constant dampness that's made the oven moist and after a couple more curing fires you'll be good to go.
