Clay oven - 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.

  • Clay oven

    Hi, this is a photo of the clay oven I am installing.

    Truth is, I did not take any photo of mine, but this one is exactly the same. One meter outside diameter, made with very white clay, build in the west of Spain in a place called Pereruela.

    Thickness of the wall seems to be around 4 cmts. It will be covered with another 10 cmts kaolin mud mixed with straw, and insulation around.

    Don't forget the insulation underneath. And consider something non-flammable for your clay covering. Are you doing a flue?

      Hi dmun,

      I'm afraid I arrived too late to this page in relation with underneath insulation. I only have a layer of firebricks and loose clay on top of a 10cmts standard mortar lying directly on the ground. This side of the house is build in a mountain and the oven is on the high side, so it is at ground level on the other side of the stone wall.

      I miss the point in relation in relation with non-flammable. I expect the clay to be non-flammable. Anyway, the final insulation will have a layer of fiberglass (or similar) under the final covering.

      And yes, it has a flue.

      Incidentally, your geodesic oven is amazing.
