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.

    I have become interested in building one of these ovens and I was going to purchase the prefabricated primavera 60 but would much rather have one built by my hands. I have masonry experience and a question I had is what is holding the bricks from not falling down while laying on an angle while builing the dome. I have beeb looking at the instructions and seem to be confused. After the blocks are layed and cenent is poured for the roof it gets a little tricky so it seems.

    The mortar that you select and use hold the bricks in place, just like in your house which are stacked vertically.
    The home brew or poor man's mortar has fireclay in it and this additive makes the mortar stickier and hold the bricks in place all but the last couple of rows where they are almost vertical.

    Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

        There are different forms used to hold your bricks up. You can search for "indispensable tool" for one approach, or you can use forms of wood or foam cut to your desired profile
