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.

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.

  • My Insblock 19 got wet

    The storm was coming and we hadn't had rain in quite some time, so I wasn't prepared. I have a 4 inch concrete pad with 2 inches of insblock19 on top of it and then my floor and walls in progress. The storm was mighty and big. I quickly put a piece of plywood on top of course 7 and then a tarp, I followed with another tarp, only to find the next day that something had failed and my 2 inch insblock19 had been saturated, at least at the edges by water. The build is 3/4 over. Should I pull the plug? My gut says screw it. Go with it and any water trapped will work its way out during firings. What say you?

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Tom,

    I left some block out all winter with weight on top of it as a test. When it dried it was in good shape - keep going.

      Yes, insblock19 is good stuff. My oven was semi-exposed all winter with no degradation of the insulation layer at all.

        Yay. Good to hear. I want to start my build while my concrete is still curing and I am whetting it down.

          Ive soaked CalSil board in a bucket of water for several days, dried it out, and it was as good as new. Tough stuff.

            There is nothing much wrong with it so you can easily go with it.
            All the best..
