Summer Kitchen Update - 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.

    Re: Summer Kitchen Update

    My friend good to hear about your kitchen. I'm finally getting the woodstove that I've wanted for two years. Yey!! The stove is going on an already tiled floor, but I'd like to have it raised up a tad, so I'm going to build a hearth. Some 2x4's, 3/4" MDF, and a tile top. My question pertains to the top layer. I know that the ceramic tile is good to go as far as a combustable, but do I need to use special grout or mortar for the grout lines? Basically my question is, Is grout a combustable, and if so, what do I do about it?

      Grout isn't a combustible (it's concrete) but MDF is. It's also flexible, which may mean that your tiles will flex, and the grout crack out. Concrete board might be a better choice. Also, I suggest the mortar based tile set, rather than the glue-type.

        Where will your sink be placed?

        (M) Hi, Jim,

        (M) I have postponed finishing my outdoor "kitchen" that will include a sink. At first, looking at the thumbnails in your post I thought they all referenced the same space but when I enlarged them, I saw that a round metal grill temporarily covers a circular hole. Presumably that is where you'll locate your sink? ___

        (M) Regarding the sink, will you leave access to the waste and supply lines in case of breakage during a freeze? ___
