Wood-Fired Cooking e-Book Now Available - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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.

  • Wood-Fired Cooking e-Book Now Available

    This was a fun project and a lot of work. I appreciate all the recipes, tips, photos and help the everyone provides, and particularly want to thanks CJ and XJ for their input and help editing. As always, CJ really knocked himself out, and I appreciate that very much.

    The e-Book is 101 pages, covers wood-fired cooking techniques and oven management, and it offers a wide range of recipes. There are also many excellent photos and graphics.

    Remember, we decided to create a separte e-Book on Wood-Fired Pizza, so stand by for that.

    You can order the e-Book as a free download here:


    I look forward to hearing your comments.

    Hi James - if this is as good as the bread e-book then I'm sure it is great!
    I Have just ordered it on line and received the 'invoice' for $0.00 by email ....what next? will I receive the pdf also by e-mail now or should I be able to download from the FB site?

        Thanks Boccu,

        I am trying to program the e-Store software to send the download instructions immediately, but it is taking a little longer than I thought. The software is confused because we are not charging for the digital item. I'll let everyone know when I get it worked out. For now, it can take a few hours for the download instructions to arrive.

          Jim Wills Bread Book is AMAZING!

          (M) Thank you sooooooooo much, Jim Wills, and James B. for your extraordinary gift to us in the Forno Bravo community for your priceless (FREE for us Forum members) articulate, comprehensive, well illustrated, E book on Bread Baking in a masonry oven. I have no doubt that if I were to follow Jim's E book instructions, and lived in Toronto, that after a lifetime of experience I'd pose serious competition for Mary G's Artisan Breads.

          (M) If any of the Forno Bravo Forum members have any interest in not only baking pizza, but countless different styles of bread, this Ebook is the quintessential contribution to your library; plus you don't have to worry about getting the pages greasy!

          ================================================== ==

          (M) I feel as though I'm shop lifting by requesting, also, a copy of the more recent general E book (also free) on wood fired cooking but I'd be crazy not to avail myself of it.

            Thanks for that Marcel. (And way to go Jim). Very appreciated.

            I have modified the FB Store so that is immediately sends out the download instruction email. Now I have to cut back on all the confirmation emails. Who would have thought I would end up learning a little PHP to publish a wood-fired cookbook.

              Re: Wood-Fired Cooking e-Book Now Available

              Ciao James,

              just downloaded the three titles and must say your system is very well set up! I had a confirmation e-mail almost instantly, followed by the download keys links within minutes - well done! (Haven't had a chance to peruse the e-books yet, must dash outside to my forno project...)

              One thing that threw me initially was that I had to re-register and there were two options: Non-member and FB Customer. So I reregistered as a non-member and provided the same user name and password as before, and filled in all the personal information (again? I don't remember if I did this when registering with the Forum). IF the FB Forum user registers and puts in all the relevant info, perhaps the two DBs (forum and store rego) could be arranged so that the one pre-fills the fields in the other as an OPTION if the user/customer wants the info to be re-used? Just a thought - I know that you've got enough on your peel as it is, learning PHP and all that :-)

              (The last language I tried to learn was Forth, after I abandoned Pascal...)

              Ci vediamo!

                The wood-fired cooking ebook is marvelous. Now i have to wait for the new e-Book on Wood-Fired Pizza until my oven is curing ;-)

                  Um, I haven' received an email yet and it's been over 30 min (probably closer to an hour). I've noticed that I don't get notifications anymore either. Notifications are enabled in my Options and I checked my spam box and it's not there.


                  Edit: nevermind - everything just suddenly showed up when I cleared out my spam box - and no, it really wasn't in there.
