isalation layer - 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.

    Re: isalation layer

    Yes, insulation under the floor bricks is critical to a successful oven. The free plans offer a lot of good information on this topic; have you found and downloaded them yet?

      Re: isalation layer

      yes i downloaded them but is there a cheaper insalation then perulite and vermiculite because i cant afford it

        Re: isalation layer

        unfortunately, perlite/vermiculite is the cheaper option... but the cost definitely balances out in the long run if you weigh it against the cost of wood in an uninsulated oven.

        My oven build is finally complete!

          maybe you should build an earthen oven, or is it called a cob oven ? do a forum search, i bet thats the cheapest way you can go

              (48 x 56 x 3.5) / 1728 in per cu foot = 5.4444 cubic feet. The portland doesn't much change the volume of the vermiculite.
