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


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.

  • Is sandstone good to be used as the oven floor?

    Hi, I am in the Uk and are in the process of building an oven in my garden and am thinking of using sandstone as the oven floor, is this a good idea? Also I am not keen of having a chimney but instead having a vent at the front of the oven , will this work as well as a chimney?

    Thank you

    sandstone won't take the heat, so I think the answer to that is no.
    the chimney is right on top of the vent at the front of the oven - so not sure what you mean by the second question. You need some height to it to get a good draw out of the oven. Unless you are thinking of just having the smoke come out of the front of the oven with no vent. In which case, you may not keep your eyebrows.

      No, sandstone is unsuitable for an oven floor. The vent needs to be outside the oven proper, that is to say it should be baffled by the 63% of the door VS dome height.
