Finishing touches - 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.

  • Finishing touches

    I finally took time off from cooking pizza and baking bread to add some finishing touches to our 42" Pompeii oven.

    We had poured a curved concrete roof to enclose the oven dome, and I wanted to hide it. I picked up some 12 X 12 slate tiles at the Home Depot, cut them to 6 X 6, and rechipped the edges. Installed over the concrete, they are a nice improvement and the 6 X 6 size is scaled nicely to the size of the enclosure.

    Also fashioned a exterior steel door, mostly for looks, but it may help keep out any blowing rain.

    Now my wife says its time to move on to other projects around the home.

      I hope you get to pick the next project!

      Nice finish on the oven. The roof is really cool.
