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.

    I think about as year back or so there was a post showing a drawing of the angle of cross cut on a standard firebrick for igloo dome construction.
    If I remember right the brick was not cut on a 90 cross cut as normal for cutting your bricks in half. I don't think each brick had both sides angle cut but just one cut to cut the brick in half helped with the way the brick would then need less mortar and kind of fit better. It may have been tappered both sides I cant remember but I think there may have been some thoughts shared on how to precut the bricks a little differently for each course. I am thinking especially for the upper few courses I want to tapper my bricks this time.

    A second thing I will throw out as an idea wondering if anyone has thought of something similar to try is making up a special jig to lay the top 3 courses totally seperate from the rest of the dome. Calculate the circumfrance needed from the last course standing on oven before you build this and then mortar it in place as one heavy lid. Last time I did a castable lid and it was ok but may want to try this idea instead. What do people think of this idea....wayne

    I often remember posts I read and can't find them again.. the downside to a successful forum!

    I think I remember the post you're talking about. Maybe 15*? I seem to think it wasn't that critical (actual angle), and it wasn't too steep of a cut.
    My oven (for now):

      As you can see there are many posts, and threads. You can try using the search button and go to advance search to type in key words that were in the old post you are looking for. There is also an option for a tag search that will take you to the 70 most used thread tags. I hope this information helps on your search.

        Re: help to find old post

        thanks folks....I have found it. Post was from "Lars". His idea was to make one cut through full size bricks so the half piece will have one edge at 4 inches wide and the other edge will have a 5 inch width. So one angled cut gives you two pieces but one edge of each piece is not really tappered it is still at the factory 90 degress. A picture would be easier but I hope my explaination is working. I just may try this............wayne
