Mystery Bricks - 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 have the opportunity to get 160 free "fire" bricks from a cleanout guy on Craigslist.

    Here is what I know: They are stamped FJD on the side, they are beige in color. They are 8 3/4 long by 4" wide by 2.5" high. Any/all info is appreciated.

    We have yet to begin any construction, but I certainly don't want to begin compiling the wrong materials.

    We used recycled bricks. No problems yet

    The issue offered by other boardmembers was one of the unknown. Specifically, contamination by unknown contaminants during the former life of the bricks.

    Do you know what they were used for? Are they stained or discolored in any way?

    "Free" makes it a slam dunk in my view. You can find something to put them to good use.

    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.
