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.

  • A. P. Green bulk fiber?

    I have access to some A. P. Green bulk loose fiber, 50lbs worth. I believe it is ceramic based. Can anyone here comment on how far 50lbs would go and how it might be applied? I assume that since it is loose fill it cannot be applied to the hearth, only over the dome. Would I be correct in assuming that it must not be too heavily compressed? What could I do with it? Drape it somewhat randomly over the dome and then hold it in place with chickenwire? Would 50lbs cover a dome to any advantageous thickness?

    I'm pretty clueless here. I tried to look up A. P. Green online and didn't find too much, and really didn't find any information on their bulk loose fiber.

    Any help appreciated.

    [Followup: this stuff is apparently InsWool HP Bulk]

    One would suspect that the insulative value of the fibers would be relative to the density they were compressed to (within reason). So if that assumption is correct, if one figured a 8 lb per cubic ft density (similar to the denser kaowool), the fifty pounds should give you a bit over six cubic feet of insulation. Depending upon the size of your dome and your enclosure that may or may not be enough material.

    Hope this helps,
