Has anyone used soap stone? - 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.

  • Has anyone used soap stone?

    I am considering soap stone but I have found as yet no one who has any experience. I have 2 pieces 28" by 33" seems it would almost closely fit a 42" oven floor at 33" by 54". Or I could use as a hearth on either side of the oven opening.

    Welcome, I just looked into it but will not do it due to cost (wanna sell some soapstone?) There is a favorite link of mine that uses the soapstone for the hearth....

      I have read that the soapstone is great for pizza.....it gets hot, but I have heard that it is less good for bread. So like everything it seems it depends! If you're using it for both use the standard hearth.

        How thick is it? If it's only an inch thick you might need a layer of splits (thin fire brick) under it.
