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.

    It is a cantilevered arch, not better, not easier, why?

        It uses the same amount of mortar, if not more (more mass), and there is still only one cut per brick, just like with a Pompeii.

          I see a few issues with this type of design, the cantilever is not nearly as strong and at what point do you make the transition to 2 or more bricks? See the drawing to show the potential brick sizing issues. the drawing is based on bricks 2.5 inch thick and a 42 inch interior oven.

          It appears from the photo that the builder also had a problem with alignment between rings as there appear to be significant ridges between joints. I am not sure if this is a builder skill issue or an additional problem with this type of design.

            here's a bigger resolution of the image, you'l notice that the bricks goes further in the center of the dome as they go up.
            The last ring is not mortared to place, and the mortar in this case is just clay and sand.
            This is called as an tradinional oven, here in Greece.
            I'm think that you're both right that there is no point of doing the dome with this teqnique.
