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.

  • Fiberglass Insulation for Dome

    My oven dome is made from about 3-4" of clay/sand and 1-2" of perlite/cement. I would like to insulate it further by wrapping the oven in home fiberglass insulation but am worried that the heat will pass through the clay layer and through the perlite burning the fiberglass and that nasty binding. Do you think this should be a concern for my oven or is the 1-2" of perlite/cement enough to block out enough heat from the fiberglass? Also is 1-2" of perlite/cement enough insulation or do I need a second layer of some type of insulation? Thanks

    Re: Fiberglass Insulation for Dome

    I used fibreglass insulation for the first oven I built. It was a cast oven with2" thick walls. The insulation sat right against the walls so must have got pretty hot especially as the walls were so thin. On dismantling the oven there was no sign of deterioration of the fibreglass at all, but some people have reported that the binder burns. Maybe depends on the brand. I found the most difficult part was getting a good shape without the stuff compressing and therefore reducing its insulation value, but this would not apply if you are doing an enclosure rather than an igloo.
    If I were in your position I'd be just increasing the perlcrete layer to 4", but keep the mix lean (no more than 10:1) Even at 10:1 you've got more mass in cement than perlite and the cement only reduces the insulating capacity.
