Sealing (right word) Bricks on Super Isol HELP - 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.

  • Sealing (right word) Bricks on Super Isol HELP


    Not sure if want the answer to this... I'm almost done with my dome and had a scary thought. I leveled my bricks with fireclay/sand and put them directly on the super isol from FB. But of course there are small gaps in the bricks... which will be filled in with ash etc...

    IS THIS GOOD ENOUGH TO SEAL THE SUPERISOL??? I know you don't want it exposed on the door but never thought about the floor/gaps betweent the bricks.

    Let me know.

    Your first fire will fill all cracks with ash. If wood ash was bad for you, we would all be in trouble. You'll be fine.

    Cal-sil isn't that bad a substance. You don't want to breathe any masonry or refractory material dust when you cut it, but just lying there under your bricks it isn't going to harm anything.

          Don't you just live for moments like that? Adrenalin rush!

          Enjoy it while it lasts. I still miss building the dome - the most excitement around here is when I forget the bread in the oven...
