Chimney? - 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.

  • Chimney?

    Hello all,

    After reading all of your wonderful posts and seeing the great builds
    I have decided to build my first WFO.

    My question is this: I am forced to have a 90 bend in the chimney
    to accommodate getting out of my patio ( I cannot go straight up).

    Will my chimney work properly with one 90 degree bend in it?

    Re: Chimney?

    I do know from wood stoves that a 90-degree bend will not affect things too much, but if you do that, I would do 2 things:

    1. Increase the size of your flue
    2. Increase the vertical portion of your chimney.

    The first is to increase airflow to accomodate for the roadblock, and the second is to increase airspeed to help the hot air get moving faster to "pull" more air through.

    I have never built WFO, but the physics of convection should remain fairly constant.

      Hello Rocket2004

      I am considering a similar setup. Building in a breezeway and having the chimney go out under the roof rather than straight up and through the roof.
      I will probable do 2 45degree bends rather than 1 90 degree. I think that that should flow better.

        Rocket, I believe David is on point. I recall this being discuss way back and the 45 deg approach was the preferred option.
