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.

  • Wet FB board

    Even though I covered my "in progress" oven, apparently some rain weeped in under the tarp a few days ago. I have FB board under my firebrick floor and it seems really moist on a couple sides. It's even started showing some mildew on one side. Structurally it seems fine. I have only 2 rows left to finishing the dome and was hoping to add a layer of cement/vermiculite to the counter area this weekend. I have concerns about sealing in this much moisture, though. Should I worry about that? I want and/or need to raise the level of the counter, which I'm also expecting will hold the unmortared floor in place. On top of this counter I want to "tile" it with stone slabs and grout them in. What happens if I take out the first two or four fire bricks in the entry and replace them with the same stone? Is the heat an issue in the entry? I have small gaps in the floor between the oven and the entry, and now realize they maybe should have been bigger. I hope all this makes sense. Sorry if I'm rambling... I need advice...

    1. Wet board isn't a big deal. It will dry out just fine. My board has been soaked, and as long as you don't crush it, the water doesn't hurt it. Scrape off the mildew and let the board dry before you cover it permanently.

    2. Different materials have different expansion and contraction rates when exposed to heat. How hot will your landing bricks get, and how much of an expansion joint will you leave? Right at the edge on the outer arch, the bricks might be nearly ambient temperature, and you won't have much of an issue. It really depends on your entry depth and your vent transition. My oven has a more shallow entry, so I have a cosmetic outer arch that is not physically connected to the landing or vent, but looks like it is.
