So much rain..... - 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.

  • So much rain.....

    We dont normally get too much rain in one period but this last 48 we have had a deluge, something like 100mm.
    I lit the oven as I knew it would be wet from the rain, I didnt want to cook but to just dry the oven.
    The oven even though covered has taken to smoking, a sure sign of a wet oven.

    ok, heres a conundrum....
    its been pouring rain, inevidably the ovens got wet (very wet), you've tried to cover the oven frantically to stop any excess water entering....but not working, it looks like a pool in your oven....
    What do you do???

      The best way IMO is to build a roof over the oven, but this is a lot of effort and expense (I haven't bothered ). Even if you have sealed it perfectly there is bound to be some moisture in it from rain getting in the mouth, around the flue(if it is not sealed properly) and just the refractory sucking up moisture from the 100%humidity. After lots of rain I find a fire or two, small but long, fires in the oven is enough to get it back to working fairly well again. If my oven has got wet the outside shell will be hot to touch, indicating that the insulation is moist.
