Cure again or not? - 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.

  • Cure again or not?

    Hi All
    Having already cured my oven,(over 20 fires ) my question is, do i need to cure it again after putting another 50mm cement render topping over the outside of my oven.The oven itself is made out of refractory cement (dome) then a layer of insulation and a 50mm layer of cement render.This is the original oven. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    Cheers Woodash

    You should wrap the oven (cling wrap works well) to keep the render moist for a week. This will increase the strength of the outer shell. It sounds daft after all that trouble to rid the inside of moisture, but is worth the effort and extra time required.

      No you don't have to go through more curing fires, but don't waterproof the outside until you've had at least 10 decent cooking firings.

        Thanks for the reply David
        I have placed an old blanket around the oven, wetting this each morning for 2 days,(intending to keep moist for a week)then putting a plastic cover over the whole oven.I hope this will achieve the same result.
