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.

  • Type of Mortar used.

    Hello Everyone.

    I am building an oven, but have a quick question with regard to the fire mortar. I understand that you can not use it when the joins are thicker than 2mm, and it must not be in contact with the fire itself.

    In the very first picture of the pomeii oven design plans on the main forno bravo site, it shows an oven being made, with large amounts of mortar between the bricks at the back, as they being to angle upward. What type of mortar is used here if fire mortar cannot be this thick?These are almost like triangles of mortar.

    Any ideas here?

    Re: Type of Mortar used.

    Not sure what you mean by "fire mortar," but the home brew that I (and many others) have used is perfectly fine in contact with the fire.

    Where I had a large joint (anything over 1/2") - I mortared the joint and then slid small firebrick shims (left over from angling bricks) into the mortared joints.

    you can kind of see the broken off shims between courses here: http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/8/ch...tml#post114355

    So - if you're worried about the size of mortar joints - just add shims to cut down the size. Simple stuff.
