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.

  • Mosaic Question

    I have just finished my brick pizza oven. Thank you all for the postings. They have been extremely beneficial in my constructing my oven.

    Three layers of insulation is complete and cured (I think). My question is on putting the final layer as a 3/4" x 3/4" mosaic tile on the dome. Has anyone tried it? Is it recommended or are there any known issues with it vs. Stucco.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I have also documented construction steps on my blog.

    Thanks in advance.
    Regards.

    I have seen beautiful mozaic instead of stucco on commercial ovens imported from Naples. I think it probably the best way to get a waterproof skin without adding unneccessary weight.

    Go for it, add in mirror, rogue colors and shapes

      Gudday
      Like you I have admired the mosic oven on the forno home page, but the minister for war and finance vetoed that.
      Its pretty easy to do...basically tiling really. Break up you tiles and glue them on with tile glue which I might add is cement based ( yes you can get rubber types you don't want them). when the items covered you fill the gapes in the tiles with tile grout. you don't have to use the white grout either there coloured types as well. grout sealer is also avaliable which will mean you can make your ovens pretty waterproof.
      I have attached a pic of a mosic under the little pot belly stove on the back deck at home

        It is important to seal the surface of the stucco with a tile primer before glueing on the tiles. I used to use a cement based adhesive, but now use an outdoor acrylic adhesive because I think it has more elasticity. Heat on the adhesive is not really an issue provided the area to be tiled is all insulated well.
