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


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.


If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

    What kind of mortar should I use because I cannot find fire clay ? Is there another solution

    Re: mortar Help

    Probably any powdered clay will suffice if you can't get fire clay.

      I should qualify my reasons for advising that "any powdered clay should suffice". In the poor mans mortar there is only1/6 by volume of fireclay and at the temps we fire to that fireclay will not melt so it is a bit doubtful whether using any powdered clay would make a significant difference. The lime does a pretty good job on it's own after the Portland has given up the ghost.

        That said, the kind of place where you would get powdered clay, a ceramics supply, would most likely have fireclay, and it's likely to be your cheapest powdered clay option.

          it is also very abundant almost anywhere. Has been used for centuries as a building material making mud bricks.,but you will have to process it to. Remove any foreign material like course aggregate if you use it to make mortar. Quite a bit of work to pulverize it and pass it through a sieve (don't strain yourself)
