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.

  • crack in the dome

    Hi,

    I have been looking for the related threads for the crack in the dome of my newly build oven, it's Casa2G80. It seems the crack is not too much a big deal according to what I understand, but just to ensure my oven is really fine, or not fine, if anyone can look at the pictures attached and let me know what should I do about it, that is very appreciated.

    I had done the curing process and started to heat up the oven to 700 2 days ago, but last night I notice there is a line of crack appears on the back of the oven around the curve up area, horizontally straight to the back seam about 8".

    Is this crack common? Will it get worse? Should I try to fix it?

    Thanks for you help, and Good Day.

    Hi All,
    My name is Amanda and I am the tech/post sales support contact here at Forno Bravo. I have answered this post in a private message, however I wanted to address this so everyone can understand the cracking. The pictures show a hairline crack that (while rare) won't be a problem. He can keep using and enjoying his oven.

    Thank You,
    Amanda Shugart

      As the top of the oven gets way hotter than the base for each firing there is considerable stress on large casts, particularly when the temp gets ramped up from ambient so fast. Industrial furnace builders tend to predict where the cracks will occur then create joins in those places. Because your oven is a dome it will not fall apart, you'll most likely have many many years of good service even though the crack will remain.
      Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

        I am from India, and I recently completed by Pompeii oven. Over the refractory bricks, I applied a coat of fire clay and then wrapped glass wool insulation. I applied a second coat of fire clay on the glass wool and left it overnight to dry. However next day the the dome was all cracked up. Plz help.
