Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:


Thank you for understanding.

    Hello all, and thankyou for the birthday wishes.. I have been cooking in the oven a little, and will post properly when i get a second.. I was thinking it might be benificial for idiots like myself to have a sticky post with tips for linking stuff in posts, hot linking, photo reduction, all that jazz.. What is hot linking anyway? It sounds like something i would find in one of those other websites, but remember someone talking about it here.. Cheers..

    Re: Computer geekitry

    Hot linking is grabbing the URL of a photo on another server and using it somewhere else. Here's a pic hot-linked from my own website:

    and here's a Forno Bravo hosted image:

    The difference is that the hot-linked image uses someone else's bandwidth which could crash a small site, and you don't have control of the image. If I was mad at you for stealing my bandwidth I could switch out that picture with something rude with the same name. A republican politician got in trouble with hot-linking from a site of someone who didn't like his politics.

        Not a bad idea...

        I'd like something like that myself...

        Sorry, couldn't resist. It's actually a great idea - all the stuff I know how to do now I learned from a theology website with just that kind of forum (actually, a couple different forums on the site - who knew computer geeks were into theology? ).
