Is it possible to Copy-Paste just photos to "Brick Oven Photos"? - 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.

  • Is it possible to Copy-Paste just photos to "Brick Oven Photos"?

    (M) This question is really meant for James Bierney, the "Moderator-Administrator" of the Forum:

    (M) James, you suggested that we build a really large library of Photos on the forum section called "Brick Oven Photos". That seems like a good idea yet many of us are probably tempted to support our questions and answers with photos in whatever "thread" we are using.

    (M) As "Administrator", could you leave the photos on the various "threads" but also copy and paste all the photos on that special page called "Brick Oven Photos"?

    (M) If that were possible, you could use your building experience to group them into sub-sets, e.g. "Foundation Photos", "Concrete Block Wall Stand Photos", "Insulated Hearth Photos", "Dome Photos", etc.

    (M) This may be more complicated and time consuming than I am aware of so I hope you know that this question is not meant as a complaint. I am grateful for the photos wherever I find them.

    (M) Thank you for your time.

    What does everyone think?

    I can set up sub-forums, with sticky threads that stay at the top of the section to arrange photos for:

    Hearth and foundation
    Oven construction
    Vent and oven arches
    Trim and finish

    You could use the "attachments" button to arrange photos inside each section. There might be some replication with photos posted within each Forum section, but again, storage is cheap, and easy access is the first order.

    I think we should keep food photos attached with the recipes in the various cooking sections.

    Let me know what you all think. If the consensus is separate photo sections, I can set it up.

      One member's view on Photos being also posted as sub-sets

      As the author of that splendid idea I feel I need to recuse myself lest I give the illusion of personal bias. It is totally immaterial to me which way the vote goes, though I suspect that those who would oppose it probably prefer to build Alan Scott ovens. Never-the-less, make up your own minds and rest assured that I will not tell you who I really am but sign this gallant and totally objective offering simply as,

        i know that in the short time since i have joined this forum, information has become more and more available, so anything to promote easier access for future builders is good in my book. i concur with the anonomous bosch.
