The Pope's Pizza 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.

  • The Pope's Pizza Oven

    This might be my favorite photo from our trip. This oven is in the kitchens at the Papal Palace in Avignon, where the popes lived during the 14th century. At the time the pope's were pretty secular, and by all accounts threw some great parties. They still have the financial records from that time, and some of these guys had huge travel and entertainment budgets -- and a great wine cellar, which is still intact.

    I have this mental picture of the pope sitting back with a few bishops eating pizza and drinking Chateau-Neuf de Pape.

    The oven itself is in great shape, and the papal palace is a great place to visit and get a feeling for the medieval world.

    Pope's back in the day were not as stodgy prim nor proper!

      JE, James,

      Lest we forget our chatechism: those pizzas (wine, too) would have had the papal blessing, and those parties probably had a papal dispensation. Therefore, your past life as a sinner would have been wiped, and you could start all over with a clean slate on the pizza and wine.

        All of that from a good Irish boy.
