Southern Californian Contacts to Construct Oven or Vacation Trade - 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.

  • Southern Californian Contacts to Construct Oven or Vacation Trade

    Hi Everyone,

    I am looking for someone I can pay to construct a wood fired oven for me.
    I live in Ventura California. Does anyone know anyone in my area that is possibly available to do this?

    I live a mile from the ocean in a beautiful canyon location with ocean view and a alvocado orchard. I would be willing to trade a couple of guest rooms for someone wanting to vacation here for the right person or persons...

    Thanks for your help!

    I would recommend building it yourself. It sounds like a daunting task but once you start you really get into it.

    WARNING: It can be annoying to those around you because soon all you will want to talk about is the optimal mixture you have discovered for portland cement, lime, sand and fireclay. Or you will go to the beach and instead of enjoying the surf and looking at waves you will examine the sand to see if it is better than the sand you are currently using for mortar. Every brick edifice will take on new significance as you appreciate or critique the bricklaying. Of course to those around you it will seem as if you have lost your mind. And this is just the building phase. Once its done your newly discovered, previously long dormant obsessive streak will turn towards all thing flour, yeast and proofing time related, and on and on and on.

    I finished my oven about 5 months ago having never laid a brick beforehand and now fire it up almost every weekend. It means so much more to me that my son and I built it together. If you can, take the plunge...
