oven landing - 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.

    If you are using refractory insulating fiber board underneath the oven [which raises the cooking surface , what is the best way to bring up the oven landing up to the same height up to the cooking surface and vent landing [which is already higher because it has brick on it]?

    Morning Chale,

    The decision I made was to use concrete as the finished surface on the landing, so I chose to pour the concrete deep enough to fill the entire space. If you are going to finish the landing with stone or tile, then only place enough concrete to bring the level up to the correct thickness that when you add your stone or tile, the surface is level with the cooking floor.

      Did you pour the landing concrete in front before you did the dome or after you were done with everything else. If you did it after, did you let the wet concrete edge touch your insulated fiber board. There have been some posts about the oven steaming if it gets wet.

        Hey Chale,

        I placed the concrete on the landing the very last step in the construction - before the big clean up. I didn't want to be dropping stucco on the most used and visually noticeable surface on the oven.

        I used the perlcrete insulation so did not face the question you have regarding placing the concrete against the insulation board. Maybe one of the others on the forum can address the question, however, I can't imagine the concrete against the insulation would cause a problem.. Should be fine.
