proofing baskets - 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.

    Has anyone out there ever attempted making their own bread proofing baskets?
    I'm thinking about trying it...heck - if I can build my own brick oven, I should be able to make a few bread proofing baskets, eh?

    CecilB I know many professionals out there that have their Masters Degree in Basket Weaving...so I'm sure you can figure it out.

    Personally for me it's not cost effective. I would rather pay the $9 for a few baskets then spend $6 on materials and $200 in my labor.

    Take a look at these people
    Rattan Coiled Proofing Basket The Lucky Clover Trading Co.

    They also have oblong and rectangular. I bought from them and was very satisfied with the product and doing business with them.

    Have fun

      Wow! thanks - but I would like the larger ones. And your right about the money/labour - the one I was looking at was 35 - 43 bucks! i want about 6 - 8 of the 'em!

          Faith, how heavy a loaf can you do in the Lucky Clover baskets?

            I have the round ones and I usually do a 1.5 lb I can't remember for sure if I have ever done a 2 lb in them, but I think I have.
