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.

  • thermal break?

    Would it be worth the trouble to build in a thermal break between the inner arch/dome area and the outter arch and chimney using insulating firebricks.
    I was thinking of cementing in about an 1.5" buffer, it would keep the dome brick from transfering as much heat to the landing arch and chimney.
    My landing floor is already in place so I would just install a sliver of the insulating brick between my landing and the granite countertop for the break.

    Re: thermal break?

    There are two reasons to insulate the outer arch or entry as far as I can see.
    1. to minimize oven heat loss by conduction.
    2. to allow the inner parts of the oven to expand without placing stress on the cooler outer parts.

    If you use ins. f'brick you won't get any advantage re point 2.
    I prefer a vermiculite mix which is somewhat elastic, insulating firebrick isn't.

      What happens to the outter decorative arch then the inner parts expand, will I get cracking? At some point the inner arch area comes in contact with the outter parts. So your saying that If I insulate the dome and arch then place the thermal break prior to the decorative arch, I would be better off. That makes sense because the landing, inner arch and chimney will be allowed to move with the dome when hot.

        Yes, I believe this is preferable, and it allows you to tie in the construction of the entry to the dome rather than it standing alone.

          In order to avoid the decorative arch from coming in contact with the main dome/chimney/landing, I am thinnking of leave a space and use the fireproof rope as on the doors of other stoves between the decorative arch and the outter chimney arch.
          It will give a nice seal and would not be very noticable if it is pushed back in an inch or so.

            High temp silicone works very well at this location as it will not reach the 6-7 hundred degree limit.

              That sounds like a good idea also, thanks.
