Pain Facon Beaucaire - 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.

    I made these twice this weekend. I started all this baking stuff with "Dough" by Richard Bertinet. I love rolls and this was the first book I found that had the types of stuff I was looking for. Now I've largely moved beyond it, since it's somewhat a beginner book.

    Anyway I had not tried these yet and they looked pretty good. They turned out pretty good also.

    These look fabulous. Did you use sourdough? I looked Bertinet's book up and there they are so I'll try them. I'm with you about RB so don't consult his books very much. However, I know some people who took his classes and they have only good things to say about him.

      Thanks Annie!

      I'm glad you about the sourdough because I had a question. I used his "ferment" where I took a piece of dough a few months ago and added some extra flour and water (50%) and kept swapping a 7oz piece when I made dough.

      I left the ferment for about 3-4 weeks while I had fun with the Ciabatta. I was afraid it might have been pretty dead, but when I added the 7oz of fresh dough, it puffed right up.
      I used it to make the two batches of rolls and the flavor was great.

      Is that sourdough?

        I assume that the ferment was originally made using commercial yeast?? If so, then it's not strictly sourdough. You make a sourdough 'mother' or chef by just mixing unbleached flour and water (nothing else in my book, but some people use grapes or yoghurt or ...) and allow it to ferment and then feed it with more flour and water on a regular schedule. Then it can rest in the fridge when you are not using it.

        However, you probably have a close approximation as the amount of commercial yeast gets diluted every time you use some and feed it again. Without having more information, I'm not sure what you have. Do you ever add commercial yeast to it?

        Joe Ortiz's book "The Village Baker" has great instructions for getting a sourdough going.
