FB Moderators - 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.

    I noticed DMum was a moderator a little while back, now I notice Ken.

    When did you guys become moderators? I must have missed that and wondered who else moderates now...??? Also, I assume you moderate specific areas or posts, is that right??

    Nice to see the forum expanding and James getting a break!

    Re: FB Moderators

    I'm a moderator, but other than having a couple of "flag" icons on each message,

    I don't notice any difference. I've not been asked by James, or anyone else, to monitor the site for abusive posts.

      Somewhere there's an old thread (last fall maybe?) talking about all the spam that was appearing at the time, and the need for more eyes on the postings. I believe Ken and some others volunteered and were made moderators.

        Hi guys,

        I added Ken and DMUN as moderators a while back, but so far the newest software makes it easy to catch and delete spam and spammers. They don't even appear on the forum. For now, technology is keeping us one step ahead. :-)

        Still, new members' first posting is now moderated, and they have to be approved before they are public -- so when I will be away for a longer period of time, I will be asking for help from our moderators.

        Thanks for asking.

          True, I hardly have noticed the spammers anymore
          that used to be more of a problem.

          Sounds like you catch them when they try to sign up (in chinese?)

            I think you are all doing a wonderful job. The spam seems to be completely eliminated. This site is truly an inspiration where the whole world with a common theme can come together. It makes me want to travel the world just to look at wood fired ovens and the meet all the really cool people who make it happen. Yet, I can surf from this back corner at the end of the road. I will post some more pics but its always a challenge for me
