ash pit - 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.

    in reading and looking at the scott ovens, they seem to feel strongly about an ash pit, does anyone in the forno bravo camp have any opinions?

    Ash cans are the pits

    (M) I suspect that even with an ash pit, some ash would remain. I'll use one of my long handled tools to remove most of the ash.

    (M) If you include an ash pit, unless you provide a complex chute, you lose a significant amount of wood storage under your hearth stand.

    (M) If any Pompeii oven builders have included one, there has been no mention that I can recall.

      Robert Musa has an ash slot on his Pompeii oven and he says he never uses it. That made the decision for me...

      Here is that thread
