Dome to high - 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.

  • Dome to high

    Building a 42 inch Pompeii. I did not use forms just wedges. Now I'm to the top and see that it is 26.5 inches. Do I take off a few rows and try to jimmy it? not sure what will happen if I just leave it? My door opening is 12.5. Any suggestions for a non-engineer/builder (Pizza Lover) would be helpful.

    I vote to just leave it...I have seen commercial pizza ovens much higher. As long as you preheat the oven properly and have flames going up to the top of the dome while you are cooking the pizza it seems to me that it should work fine. How about a pic...?

      I think you will be fine. You over shot a bit but you really cook your pizza on the hearth. There are some that think you need a low dome - there is merit to that but you can still get great pies. When you bake, it won't make a bit of difference. JMO

        A friend of mine talked me into building him an oven with a higher door so he could fit in big roasts so I increased the height of the dome by about 20% by adding more on the bottom the rest of the dome was the same dimensions. I wasn't sure how it would work and had my fingers crossed. Turns out it fires and performs exactly the same.I don't think you have anything to worry about.
        Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
