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 oven floor is made from 300 x 300 mm tiles, when they were put down they were as tight as a ducks bum (watertight), now after lots of firing there is a 3mm gap between them all.
    It just shows how much these ovens move around.

    I have a feeling that the ash that falls into the gap each time it expands adds to the problem.

    Gudday guys
    Theres another point of difference between the two ovens other than size of hearth bricks. Doug your oven you mortared the first layer of bricks outside the hearth bricks containing the hearth bricks within. Al with your oven your oven structure is built on the hearth surface itself.
    Its just a thought at this time...there are so many other difference that could come into play?
    Al...is this really a problem though. Once the expantion has taken up, should it just stop? Surely the ash should act as a flexible expantion joint filler rather than forcing the hearth apart!

      "containing the hearth bricks within"

      Can't see this as a factor. If it wants to expand due to thermal expansion of the bricks, it will do so regardless of any thin mortar layer.
