When can i mosaic??? - 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 don't know, but we all know someone who does.

    Ask Francis in Switzerland. She is the mosaic authority, no question.

      Pardon me while I snicker i sure many of the forum members would enjoy pictures of you getting tarted up.. but this is a family forum

      I would wait until after you have had a few fires to insure that your render is done expanding and contracting. It will also give you a chance to fix any cracks that appear before having a giant diagonal slash throught your Mona Lisa like masterpiece.

        Ok, as resident mosaics expert (apparently ) now hear my words.... Um, I just follow the times given on the packet. In this case the adhesive packet which says to wait two weeks before aplying it to mortar and six weeks (!) for concrete. Does it have any guidelines on the product you're using? If it doesn't I would assume that a week should be adequate.

        Just googled that Keraflex maxi stuff, looks good.

        Bruce has go a point though (nice one btw, completely missed that ) - have you fired your oven up at all? I forget, is it cured? Maybe a couple of really big fires (after curing) would be a good idea, to drive out as much as possible of the moisture. Incidentily, I found that the mosaics nicely covered up (and closed) any cracks on the outside of the oven.
