can't get brick specs - 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.

  • can't get brick specs

    I've contacted three local firebrick sources. None can tell me the specs on their bricks. One said he had light duty bricks, but I'm not sure what he's basing that on. Is there a significant downside to using light duty instead of medium? Does either have a faster heat up time? I'm not sure that I'll be able to confirm that any bricks I find are medium (or even light) duty.
    Here's mine:

    You can just use normal solid house bricks when it all boils down to it, fire bricks just have a better heat cycle life.

      hi jim, ran into same problem my self. surely they can tell you the manufacture (whiteacre greer, ect), and from there you should be able to get a spec sheet. I could not find med duty, though i tried, most on this site used with great success, light duty bricks, which have a lower alumina content, medium duty is higher in cost, and harder to find. The pompeii manual goes into great detail about this, also James has a sticky note in pompeii construction area of forum the has a brick primer. I personally would not purchase unless I knew they were light duty, and who the manufacture was. Pat
