Javea Municipal Market - 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.

  • Javea Municipal Market

    The other treat is Javea's Municipal Market located in the Old Quarter of the area.

    The modern municipal market sits opposite on the northern side of the church and stands on the site of the convent of "Agustinas Descalzas" (the barefoot Augustine nuns). Built in 1946, the market retains the style of the area and is a popular place for fresh fruit and vegetables, locally-caught fish, and meat from the local area.

    The building is trimmed in local Tosca stone quarried from the seaside. It sits in the shadow of a 14th century church.

    Xabia was once a walled town to protect the inhabitants from marauding pirates that once sailed on the Costa Blanca and there is still evidence of the presence of these fortifications; The road around town and stone crosses mark the original gates in three locations.

    In the centre of town, mostly built in original Tosca stone hewn from the rocky shore, sits the impressive fortified Church of Sant Bartolomé which dates back to the late 14th century (there is evidence that some of the structure may date back a further 300 years.)

    The church suffered extensive damage during the Spanish Civil War and its southern and western walls remain pockmarked with bullet and shell holes. It was listed as a National Historic and Artistic Monument in 1931 and remains a centrepiece of Xàbia's 'old quarter'.

    Check out the individual stone mason marks on the blocks....that's how they got paid!

      Okay, do me in, I'm so jealous. Being where you are, when you are, is priceless.

        More awesome pics XJim. Thanks again for posting. Those hams hanging in the market make my mouth water. Pan del la dia...(or something close to that - bread of the day). Toasted ham on bread was my favorite. Mmm, that's a sandwhich!

        Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.
