Big Day in San Luis Obispo! - 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.

  • Big Day in San Luis Obispo!

    Yesterday was a big day. I covered the dome with one more layer of FB blanket, for a total of 4 layers, then covered the insulation with aluminum foil to keep moisture out. I finished the rebar, applied lathe, and the scratch coat of stucco. In the evening we fired up the oven all the way for the first time. The dome went well past 932 deg. I had done 6 curing fires the week before without the aid of a thermometer. My wife, daughter and I enjoyed our first home WFO pizzas, which turned out great. No major problems with the oven. In the morning the oven was 360 deg, the stucco was 65 deg, but the concrete below the oven (top of wood storage area) was elevated to 120 deg. Although, one hour after beginning the fire, the concrete below was at room temperature. My hearth is made of 3.5 in of structural concrete and 3.5 in of insulating concrete. If I were to do it over, I would use insulating concrete and Supersol insulating board. But overall I am a very happy guy.

    Nice work! I look forward to seeing the finished oven. It looks like it is very well built!
