CF Blanket and Render - 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.

    I was hoping some advice for the following problem.

    I wrapped my dome in cf blanket yesterday and then coated it with render. I didnt use chicken wire or anything and today when it has dried it has turned kinda brittle and breaks easily when touched. I'm presuming that i will have to take it down and re-lay the blanket using chicken wire?

    Or could i get away with putting another coat of thick render on it to try and bulk it up?

    Cheers Ross

      Be patient. Someone will answer soon enough. You are so close to being done. I envy you. Good luck.

        Chip it off and apply chicken wire first. The blanket isn't a good substrate for a stucco product. The wire gives the stucco something to bind with and also acts as reinforcement. Your final product will be more rigid and you'll get a better finish on it if you go with the wire.

          Why chip it off? it's there already and removing it will just pull off handfulls of insulation. Unless you have a real space problem, I'd just use what's there as a support for your wire armature (hardware cloth is a lot stronger than chicken wire) and move on.

            Good point. The thought of pouring concrete on an bad subtrate sounded not too nifty. I like your idea of putting a stronger lath over it and recoating better than chipping it off.
