Way to go Balty - 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 just took a look at your photos of closing in the dome. That is just outstanding work. Complimenti -- your trapezoids are perfect.

    Agreed. As someone who has yet to apply mortar to a single brick (in my entire life), I am inspired...and intimidated!

    Amazing work Balty! Congratulations!

        Agreed! Beautiful brick work. It is such a nice dome, it is a shame to have to cover it up with insulation.

          Inspiring work indeed. I was going to post some pics of my block stand but I think your work deserves to sit as the newest pics at the front of the forum for several days to inspire others.

          I see you've done the dome first, was this to make it easier to form up the dome or other reasons?

          I've been wondering about how I go about my vent area and how to tackle it, particularly how the chimney attaches. Doing it in two stages would give me time to research/figure out how to do the vent and chimney.

          Are there advantages either way?

            Thanks for the kind words guys they're very much appreciated. The information gleaned from the theads in this forum is invaluable, all the guys sharing their individual experiences adds up to a formidable resource for anyone taking on this type of construction.

            It feels good to have the most intimidating part of the project behind me.

            With regard to the dome first chimney second question. It was not an intentional design plan, after I built the arch the natural progress of the construction took me in that direction. I don't see it as a big deal, if you look at the Artigiano at Forno Bravo it is designed without an integral flue, the vent bolts directly to the face of the arch.

            I intend to plant another arch in front of the existing one to form a vent & chimney. I'm considering leaving an expansion gap & filling it with high temp caulk but really havn't thought this entirely through yet. Might go searching for threads on this to see what the other guys think.
