The dog ate my starter - 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.

  • The dog ate my starter

    I got up this morning to find an empty tupperware container in the middle of my dining room floor. Grrrrrrrrr. I was just bragging yesterday about how alive my starter was and how happy I've been with my sourdough bread. I fed the starter and left it in my kitchen windowsill then forgot about it. That won't happen again. Ok, maybe it will. I'm really forgetful. Our windowsills are very low, just the right height for a boxer's nose.

    So, this morning I mixed up a new batch. It took me at least 2 months to get it where I liked it last time.

    I wonder what the starter is doing in my dog's stomachs. I have 2 boxers and earlier in the day they had gorged themselves on manure my husband had put in the garden. I guess I'm lucky there wasn't more of a mess on my floor this morning. No turkey leftovers for them today.

      Be patient with a new starter. As you know, it takes time. Alternately, I could send you some of mine, dried. All you would have to do is rehydrate it. Sometimes when I ship it, a bit of mould occurs, but you could just cut it off. Let me know what you'd like to do. My starter is about four-five years old.

        Thanks Jim. I think I'll just be patient and wait for mine to come around again. One day I'd like to do that though. I'd love to compare breads using different people's starters and at different ages. Karen

          Those dogs must have quite a stomach!
          My curiosity is getting the most of me, how do you dry the starter? Do you just leave it out?

            Starters should never get too warm; that's what causes mould. I measure out a few ounces onto a plate, cover it loosely with plastic wrap, then put it in a cool place to dry. No mystery. Works.
