WindKat Cowl - 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.

  • WindKat Cowl

    I have been searching around to decide what I am going to do for a chimney. My main consideration was to have it seal well at the base when it rains.

    I was going to do a ss round flue with cowl with an outer flue so I can seal it at the outer flue base with heat resistant silicone..... but then I saw a cheap windkat cowl on ebay

    Has anyone used a windkat flue on a wfo. I thought it might fit nicely on pompeii oven. Then I would do a brick outer chimney with an inner ss flue.

    I will just need to think through how best to make rain proof.

    Brett, I haven't used one of those cowls....I chimed in here to assure you there is no easy way (read short cut) to do this if you want some kind of permanence.

    If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
    Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
    An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

      Thanks Lee. All the work you have done compiling the links is really great. I used those links to work through my inner arch like GianniFocaccia, KarangiDude & Sharkley. I am really happy the way it worked out.

      I have ordered the Windkat so will let you know how it goes. At the moment I am thinking it is going to be just as easy to do an enclosure as it would be to do a dome over the insulation and then do all the weather proofing of the dome.
