another firebrick question - 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.

  • another firebrick question

    after searching the area i've found a yard that carries firebrick....after a few phone calls..one to the supplier and then one to the manufacturer...i have found that these bricks are a mediun duty..and have been told that low duty bricks are non existant in this area..the content of the available bricks is 33.9% alumina and 59.9% silica...i guess my simple question is..are these bricks satisfactory for use in building the oven..any input will be greatly appreciated..thanks

    I could only find medium duty for mine (I found these bricks).

    My oven has only really been up to full temp once, but they worked great and retained heat well.

    James has this brick primer on the site. It says, "There is also a medium duty firebrick designed for higher heat. We recommend the low duty firebrick, but medium duty is acceptable."

    All-in-all, better to have a medium duty firebrick oven than no oven at all.

      thanks for the reply..as a matter of fact..over the weekend i was searching the internet for firebrick and came accross the bricks that you used..the thing i really like about the bricks that i've found here is that they are very uniform in size and have clean..crisp..square corners..and btw..i've followed the building of your oven..very impressive..my compliments
