Pizza on the History Channel - 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.

  • Pizza on the History Channel

    I just saw a show on the History channel called "America Eats: Pizza". I'm out of town so I couldn't TIVO it (Darn! I could have streamed it for everyone.)

    It was excellent. The show covers the history of pizza starting way back in old Italy. They highlighted the old wood ovens and how the soil near Mt Vesuvius allows them to grow the best tomatoes (interesting considering our threads on San Marzano's)!

    The program then takes you to New York and shows how a coal-fired "White Oven" works. All my questions answered with one show!

    Then it shows the beginnings of early American pizzerias, Pizza Hut, Dominoes, and (gasp) frozen pizza, highlighting the advances in technology required for these industries.

    It was humorous to see the different Pizza "Experts" arguing why their pizza cooking styles were the "best"... ie: Coal fired vs. wood fired; deep dish vs. thin, Dominoes vs. Pizza hut.

    I checked the History Channel's website. The show isn't scheduled to be on again in the near future, but it's been played occasionally over the past year or so, so it'll be on again. Watch the schedules and keep your DVR, VCR, or TIVO ready!
