Some specs on my oven - 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.

  • Some specs on my oven

    I am in the process of finishing up my oven and thought you might like some details about the build process and materials used.

    36 inch interior diameter oven
    19 inch dome height
    5 foot by 6 foot base
    10 inch by 48 inch foundation dug by hand for the base
    3 cubic yards of concrete, delivered, for the base weighing approximately 12,000 pounds.
    57 cement blocks for the base at 30 pounds each, 1710 pounds.
    7 inch concrete slab on cement board, 24 80 pound bags of cement mixed by hand, 1920 pounds
    200 fire bricks at 8 pounds each, 1600 pounds
    4 50 pound bags of Heat Stop 2 mortar, 200 pounds
    16 cubic feet of vermiculite
    2 94 pound bags of cement, 188 pounds

    No stats on the facade yet. Lots of comments on building a bomb proof dog house. Total weight is about 18,000 pounds. Lots of physical work, lots of pride in doing almost all of it by myself.
