Granite Oven - 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.

  • Granite Oven

    Ran across a granite oven in a renaissance palace, now a Parador.

    It was a single slab stone hearth and the dome was made from granite blocks. The outside included a stone chimney, kind of outside the oven itself but meant to get the smoke out of the kitchen I'm sure. Last shot is the open "hearth" in the kitchen.

    Probalby could be considered a commercial oven though!

    The place dates to 16th century so you're looking at an oven 500+ years old or so!

    Did you stay at Paradors? We stayed in a converted monastary one time. They are all different and unique in their own way.

    The oven looks good -- I've never seen a cut stone block oven like that. Very nice.

      James, we love the Paradors and try to stay at the old historic ones...Castles, Monastaries, Palaces, Estates.....it's really quite a nice thing they've done in Spain to have preserved and restored so many of these monuments.

      We went to the Parador in Santiago which was built in 1499 by Ferdinand and Isabella to house the pilgrims which at the height of the pilgrimages numbered almost 2 million a year!!!! The oldest refuge in the world built across from where St James bones are interned.

      Their link is Bienvenidos a Paradores

      They have some nice specials to cut down on the pricing....damn exchange rate!

        The Parador on the hills above Toleda is great -- you see the Cathedral lit up at night above the walled city. Very nice. A glass of Cava on a warm summer evening.
