Ash slot right under the vent - 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.

    My advice to you is to forget about building in the ash lot! It's pretty useless unless you are building an indoor oven and you don't want to spill ashes on the floor of your home. It's really not needed. All you need to do is to let the wood burn down to ash and scoop it out with the ash shovel or if its just a small pile, leave it and build your fire over it. I've never felt that I should have built one in my oven! Others may have a different opinion but I don't miss it at all!
    Best to you on your build! Rick

      I don't think an ash slot under the vent will be an issue.

      I did not add one as I did not want to worry about hot coals getting into my wood storage area.
