Bob's 42 in Beijing - 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.

  • Bob's 42 in Beijing

    Ok, I was glancing at the page: http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/8/po...d-12611-3.html Getting a little nervous whether or not I ordered enough bricks@300 (as I was thinking to taper taper every which way), and I got to noticing there were a few guys that went to 1/3 bricks or even shorter near the top ends of their domes.
    Up until now I'd only heard of everyone using 1/2 bricks the whole way through save a soldier or sailor course at the bottom. This got me wondering about thermal mass and differences in such throughout the body of the oven. Is there going to be a problem in an oven when the heating and cooling rates are likely to be different in different sections? A 2 1/2" inch thick floor, 4 1/2" in thick lower walls, 3" upper walls, etc?

    The 1/3 brick you are seeing is width not depth, the dome is still 1/2 brick thick (IE 1/2 of a 9"x4.5"x2.5" is 4.5"x4.5"x2.5", 1/3 is 3"x4.5"x2.5") it is just narrower to fit better as the circle of the dome gets narrower.

      Ah ok, strange wording I guess. But the thinner brick makes sense
