Help - Fix now or wait???? - 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.

  • Help - Fix now or wait????


    It's been a while since I've done any active posting - too busy making pizzas. Anyway noticed that my inside arch has "fallen" (not worried about the decorative outer arch) about 1/8" - 1/4". So far it doesn't seem worse. Given I'm just starting the season I would really like to use it until it get's worse... So far I haven't lost any bricks just a section of arch has slipped down.

    Let me know your thoughts. I'm guessing I'll have to dig out and rebuild.

    My door arches, both inside and outside, got significant cracks. No one likes to see that, but unless bricks are wiggling loose, I'd leave it be.

      I totally agree with David on this - let it be. A while back someone did have a brick fall - I think the fix was to grind some indents on the side of the bricks ( to make a fake core) and slide it back in with mortar. In your situation, I don't see how it can slip much more. Keep cooking until you have a real problem.

          Look for signs of "spreading" at the the ends of the arch. If not, just leave it alone.

            How old is your oven?

              If there is enough side thrust on the arch it should be fine, arches are by design self supporting.

                The oven is just over 2 years old. Actually I'm not that concerned about cracks/shifting as I knw that happens. My concern is the arch is supporting about 8 ft of Duravent Chimney... Always a concern in the back of my mind since I've never build an arch before...

                I think I'll just wait it out. If it does "collpase" I can rebuild .

                Any other thoughts would be appreciated.
