Heat Stop - 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 am in the process of building a 36” WFO and I am going out of town to buy Heat Stop 50 and for you that have finished yours, how much should I buy?


    P.S. I live in a very small town and will be driving about 175 miles to get it.

    It depends on how much brick cutting you're planning on doing. As a guideline, the FB 36"kit has 110 pounds of refractory mortar. That may be a bit less than you need. I'd guess three bags of heatstop 50 if you're not planning on doing much individual brick tapering.

    Ask if you can return for credit an unopened bag.

    You can also build your oven with half heatstop on the inner, thinner mortar joint bricks, holding the bricks apart with wooden wedges, and slather the cheap homebrew in the outer gaps when you're done.
