Oven on the Cheap !! - 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.

    Hi all,

    I have built this oven over the last year starting in February. I have tried to keep the cost down and think i have spent roughly £400.

    The concrete blocks and storage heater blocks were free and the kiln bricks were second hand from a reclamation yard.
    one thing i would say is make sure you have plenty of sand and cement! you may notice the concrete layer is a little thin, as i did this on a sunday evening and finished well after the shops were shut It does sit on a cross wall though that cant be seen in the pictures.

    The cooking area is 36" x 28" and it heats to 250C in about an hour.

    Still trying to find some decent wood to burn so i dont upset the neighbours too much!!

    Good luck, you'll need to go hotter than 250 C to do pizza well. Try 400 C.
