building the stand - 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.

    Ok, in the instructions for building the landing, it says to "set your two pieces of 2"X2" angle irons across the opening between the two legs of the U shape..." but in the materials and tools list, it calls for 1 1/2" X1 1/2" angle iron....(that's one and a half inch)
    Will it matter if I use the 1 1/2" (which is what I just purchased!)

    And in the materials and tools list for the foundation it calls for (46) 80lb. bags of Ready-Mix concrete...then in the Insulating Hearth section it calls for 80lb. bags of pre-mixed concrete - can I buy pre-mixed? To me, premixed sounds like it's already mixed - and it comes in 80 lb. bags?

    Inch and a half angle iron should do fine.

    Ready-mix concrete, means the bags of concrete mix they sell at the home centers. It contains portland cement, sand, and crushed rock in the correct proportions, all you do is add water and mix.

    In these quantities, it's better to rent a mixer, that's a lot of hoe work in a masonry tray. Many people just order concrete from a proper concrete company, mixed with water and delivered to the curb. It's not much more expensive, and it's a big savings in the labor of lugging and mixing. I looked into it, and couldn't find a local vendor that would do small quantities, they wouldn't drive up the driveway with the full sized concrete truck. Many areas have concrete companies that will lend you a trailer that you hitch to your truck and pull home, a cubic yard at a time.
