worried about lined up joints - 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.

  • worried about lined up joints

    okay, we are admitting to a stupid mistake and have a few lined up joints in our dome....how serious is this??? Should we bite the bullet and break out some bricks we are using heatstop 50 for the mortar (if that matters) and are planning on coating the outside of the dome with it before using kaowool blankets.
    please help! we are down to the last 3 rows and have found a few places in the lower rows where our joints line up sometimes 3 over each other (stupid, stupid, stupid!!!)
    embarressingly mortified.......

    You are bound to line up joints as the number of bricks decreases up the dome. A line up of 3 joints is more rare, but not unusual. I would not worry about it.

      Since there are a variable number of bricks on each course, a few running joints are inevitable. I'd try to avoid having three lined up, though.
