Inside the brick dome - 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.

  • Inside the brick dome

    Having just finished cutting and mortaring my wee igloo, the next job is to remove the sand mould from the inside.
    Do I need to try and fill the holes on the inside between the bricks where the mortar missed to make it smooth or will the mortar flake off on the inside if I try?
    The outside is good.

      Hi ddonalds,

      the next job is to remove the sand mould from the inside.
      Whilst building my Pompeii, I removed he sand mold within minutes of fitting the final keystone and then standing on the top. It didn't collapse so i ragged out all the bricks/timber used to support the sand then climbed inside to clean off the excess mortar and to tap out the bricks that wee a little too far into the oven. A lot easier to repair/re-adjust the bricks whilst the mortar is still wet and much easier to clean it off.
      It is all in my build with pics.


      Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!
