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.

  • peels for bread. Long handled.

    Hello once again,
    I do both bread and pizza in my 42" oven. I am looking for a peel specifically for bread that is long handled (60" or so), with a wider and longer head (is that what it's called) and squared off rather than rounded. I like to make baguettes 18" - 24" and to fit at least four on the peel at once. Looking on the Internet all I can find are short handled, 12" or so rounded heads. I've seen pictures of what I'm looking for so I know I'm not making this up. I would be willing to make one too.

    So, any ideas as to where I might buy one, and any ideas as to what wood peels are generally made of?

    Thanks,
    Kim

      Thanks. I looked at items #32100028 (peel board) and #32100023 (handle) and it appears to be what I'm talking about. I just emailed them seconds ago to make sure. Good find. Thanks.

        I haven't ordered from them, but they were recommended in the resource list of Maggie Glezer's Artisan Baking book. Been thinking about getting some real couches ...

          Though I can't find exactly what I want on this site, Wholesale Restaurant Supply they do have items which might interest others here. Well worth the look.

                  You might consider simply using a modified wide board, pine or whatever. Here is a poor quality photo of a simple answer to your question. Sorry for the quality, the photo was taken in 1977 with a Kodak 110 camera. The location was Hiva Oa in the Marquesas Islands and the WFO was one reputed to have been rebuilt by Paul Gauguin. The bread output from this oven fed the village of Atuona.

                    If wiley was messing around with brick ovens in 1977, I think he gets the prize for obsession longevity.

                      Dmun, not obsession, for me back then it was simple curious fascination. I never gave thought to ever having a WFO. I had no land base, my world was the sea, my boat and the places I sailed.

                      I posted several of the photos I took back then when I first joined Forno Bravo Forum. Here's a link to that posting:

                        Wiley: I might have considered this had I not already ordered one before seeing this photo. I wasn't sure pine was a good idea which is why I asked about wood type. I know I want a wide board - at least 18" (my door is 19" wide) and I know that once I get bigger than a 1"x12" it gets costlier because it becomes a special order. So I just flat out broke down and ordered a peel.

                          Kim,

                          Have a look at Empire Bakery Equipment | Spiral Mixers, Deck & Rack Ovens, Cookie Depositors, Bakery Production Equipment, Bagel Machines and more!. They have very wide wooden peel blades that you can cut down on a bandsaw to the width you want. You can get them with handles of different lengths or simply make your own.
