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.

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

  • Taper upper courses of brick?

    Howdy folks,

    Greatings from North Idaho on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille!

    I'm in the process of laying out the oven dome and I had a question about the upper courses of fire brick. I am doing a hemispherical 40" dome using a styrofoam form.

    Are the upper courses of brick generally tapered on the sides to get a snug fit (and I assume greater strength) or should I just use straight cuts and have an angled gap between each brick in the course?

    If they are not tapered I would guess that I should make the width of the bricks smaller as I go higher on the dome (otherwise the angled gap between brick would get larger with each course).

    It has been many years since I have done brick work (I do a fair amount of stone work) and never a dome. I am doing my brick cuts with a 7" Ryobi tile saw.

    Thanks for any and all assistance.

    Good Roads
