FB mortar to set floor tiles - 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.

  • FB mortar to set floor tiles

    I am thinking of using terra cotta tiles and 1 1/2" refractory tiles for my hearth. as recommended in another thread. should I use the FB mortar to set the terra cotta tiles on my FB board and some more mortar to bond the terra cotta to the refractory tile?

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Can I ask what you ended up doing? - I've got the same issue - do I set the bricks and tile layers in mortar, ie stick them down, or do I just place them on a layer of sand, so they are loose? I'm assuming that they should all be butt jointed, no mortar between the sides. It's what's underneath them that I am confused about. Thanks.

      If I remember corectly I ended up using a fireclay sand mixture and haven't had any problems. I did not mortor between tiles just butted them together.

      I didn't use terra cotta but firebrick splits and 1 1/2 baker tiles. The floor works great and keeps a very good consistent temperature with the walls.

      Hope this helps and good luck.
