fire clay between bricks in oven floor...start over? - 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.

  • fire clay between bricks in oven floor...start over?

    I have been working with a friend on my pompei 110 kit. Yesterday, I wasn't around when he was laying down the oven floor. Not knowing better (which is completely my fault) he filled in the spaces between the bricks with fire clay. Although it is a small amount (less than a 1/8" between bricks and no fire clay on the actual surface of the floor) it is in all the spaces in the floor. I know it is better to leave empty spaces between the oven tiles rather than to fill them in. Any recommendations? Is this bad enough that I should pull up the whole floor and start over? Should I try to scrape out the "grout" that lies between the bricks?
    Any advice is greatly appreciated!
