Another cool site for ovens - 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.

      Really neat site. A few more ideas on how to finish ovens in there, too.

      Nice find!

        Seconded and "thirded." Great find. You, like I did, must have found the bond styles and iron use fascinating. Some of it seems to be what's called Flemish bond of the type seen in parts of the Hudson River Valley in New York.

          Interesting site. Belgian domain. English, French, with what, Walloon? Dutch? the primary language. Did you click through to the lists of existing and demolished ovens? There's hundreds of them. It's interesting that there are many more ovens in buildings than freestanding. I guess bakers would have wanted to work indoors in the low-country climate. Did you see the oven with the HUGE buttresses outside the building? I guess they didn't want that one to fall down.

          Assuming that all those ovens are basically un-insulated it's no wonder that they are endangered. It must take a forest to heat one of them up.
