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.

    What can be substituted for fireclay? If it is in part for leveling and setting purposes couldn't refractory cement and sand do the same thing? Troweled on with a notched trowel with the firebrick being treated just as you would tile except they would be butt together tight. Looking to start my floor this week and would love to clear this matter up.

    Refractory cement? Most refractory cements (castables, mortars, etc) are prepared, usually dry, mixes, and have their aggregates already in them. No need to mix with sand, if you choose to go this route. You can also use this mix dry, and wet the floor after you have it set it to your satisfaction.

    The actual active ingredient in refractory mortars, calcium aluminate, is hard to work with, and requires both lime and fireclay in addition to sand. I don't recommend this mix.

      Have you had the opportunity to cut any firebrick yet? If you are using a wet saw, and cut all your bricks in half in advance, the slurry you end up dredging out of the bottom of the water tray is essentially fireclay.

        Good info. I should have said refractory mortar and not cement. this would work well as a leveling agent, wouldn't it?

          Yes, it works fine, it's just a lot more expensive than fireclay/sand. If your vermiculite concrete is pretty level, and you're not using fireclay in homebrew mortar, it may not pay to buy a bag of fireclay.

            It is pretty level. How about a bed of sand?
