Expansion gap in dome - 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.

  • Expansion gap in dome

    Is a 1/4 inch gap in the front part pf the dome acceptable for heat expansion.

    Dome made up of four pieces, sort of tounge and grooved with a good seal where the pieces meet, but front edge has a 1/4 inch gap. Mason said this was OK and was needed for heat expansion.

    Should I be worried?

    You'll be fine. The general rule with the precast domes (make sure that you all buy from Forno Bravo ) is that you put a 2" thick band of refractory mortar outside of the dome seams, not inside it. That keeps your heat, air and smoke inside the oven, and allows the dome pieces to expand and contract without pushing on each other or the mortar.
