Simone's oven photos (6) - 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.

  • Simone's oven photos (6)

    This is great. I feel like I'm living through Simone's experience building and firing the oven.

    I think we should make it obligatory to take photos of your oven with your kids (if you have them) and pets.

    Thanks for all of these Simone.

    I'm trying to visualize the scale: Has someone finally built a 36" pompeii?

    Good work Simone! Your dome interior is really nicely finished. Did you repoint the mortar after you were done?

      hi dnum and james,
      yes, my oven is a 36inch dome and i am happy with the size although at the beginning i longed for a 42+, because it is so much easier to move things around on the hearth. but that said, with 4 months of baking/cooking experience i think i am fine with the 36 inch dome mainly, because i usually have smaller gatherings and don't like to use more wood than absolutely necessary.
      i did not appoint more mortar after the dome was finished. i thought about it and then figured it was not worth the time of cleaning it takes after the job - and believe me, once you have fired you oven several times, the inside look does not matter anymore at all. (take it from me, i am a bit of a perfectionist myself)
      on the topic of personal pictures. i first hesitated very much and would certainly not have done it in the beginning, but we have grown to know each other and people have been so generous with their advise and time that this feels like a community to me. ---greetings simone
