Insulating Italian Hearth Bricks MT.Vesuvius ? - 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.

  • Insulating Italian Hearth Bricks MT.Vesuvius ?

    There is a local Craig listing on some one trying to sell some insulating bricks imported from Italy supposedly made from Mt.Vesuvius ash?Any one heard of these type of bricks.They are 4 in. thick by 10 wide by 14 long.Was thinking about getting a few for any future oven builds to use as a sub layer.Thanks for any info.

    Unless they're close to free, I'd avoid mystery mystery substances as insulation. They could be great, they could be volcanic tufa, or they could be pressed toxic waste. Without a material data sheet from the manufacturer, you'd never know.

      I was thinking the same thing.Bricks have no manf. marks,or like you say data on them.So it's a crap shot.Thanks for the input.
