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.

  • Thermal Ceramics Smoothset

    I have read alot about different mortars but have only found one reference to using smoothset, any thoughts?? I can source it locally and it seems to be less expensive than HS50 although still higher than making your own

    I used the thermal ceramics brand refractory mortar. I have no idea if the bag said "smoothset," however. If it's the same product, I found it easy to work with. I did seem to have more cracks than the average build, but not very big ones, and that could have been entirely my skill with mortar and the arid Phoenix conditions.

      I'm using the same stuff from the same place that Nikki used, and it does say "smoothset" on the bag. I've barely started, and I have no experience to compare it to, but it seems to be ok.

        I just purchased this smooth set down in tucson. How did it end up working out with the mortar.

          My oven has been working well for over a year now. I call the thermal ceramics a win.
