IN progress - 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 would like confirmation of the need to put a mortar base under the floor firebrick when placed on ceramic board?

    If your placing your floor on ceramic board I would not use a mortar base under your firebricks instead I would use a sand and fireclay mix. You will find that your firebricks are not an absolute in dimension so if you laid them out on a flat surface you will find a bit of a ridge in certain places from one brick to the next. The purpose of the fireclay sand mix is to act like a leveling agent for the bricks. This way as you remove things from the oven your peal wont be catching brick edges. If you have ever laid floor tiles you do it in the same way using a notched trowel.

    Hope that helps, we would love to see some pictures.
