Oven floor 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.

  • Oven floor question

    I'm in the process of setting my oven floor for my Casa2G 100. I spread the sand on the FB board and at a couple of the edges there are some gaps between the bottom of the floor and the FB board where the sand is so loose it won't stay up in there. Overall, the floor seems to be stable but I don't want to risk it becoming unlevel in the process of putting the dome around it. I was thinking about getting some of that foam fire caulk that you can spray and filling in some of those gaps. In retrospect, I think if I had wet the sand a little this wouldn't have happened but its also 13 degrees here today and that may have been a problem. Any thoughts?

    Hello jbuildarkansas,

    You should use enough sand to fill any little gaps in the insulating board, and provide a level and secure base for the floor pieces. After you can assembled the dome around the floor, you can put a little sand between the outer edge of the floor and the dome walls. Just enough to hold everything nicely in place. Don't put any sand between the floor pieces -- they should fit snugly together.

    Don't put anything else between the floor and the dome walls. The oven floor and dome expand and contract differently when you fire and cool your oven, and that little gap allows them to work independently. It will fill up with ash and won't get in the way of cooking.

    Have fun with the rest of the installation!
