morter under soldier? - 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.

  • morter under soldier?

    in the instructions I don't see this called for and in most pics it does not look like folks have a mortar joint under the soldier but I did see a few with it. I am putting my soldier on top of the floor. If you don't put it under what keeps the bricks from moving in recognizing most of the force would be pushing out from the dome and you have mortar on the outside to hold them in place

    If for no other reason, you should mortar it so that you can keep everything level.

      its pretty level now but I guess a thin layer of mortar underneath won't hurt

        The tolerance for firebrick is pretty tight since they are dry pressed, but there is still a small amount of variation in size.

            I mortared under mine. I don't plan to have mortar behind them.

            Seems like that's the base and you would want them firmly held in place. Either under or behind.
