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.

  • Roof is on....almost done

    I just had the saltillo tile roof installed this week on my oven. Pretty happy with the way it turned out. It does look like the roofs you would see throughout Italy. Next up is the stone or rock work on the walls and chimney. I am debating between a cultured stone or real stone veneer. Due to costs, probably will not be done until late this year or next spring.

    The main thing is the oven is working very well and everyone we have over loves the pizzas. Thanks to everyone for their input and great advice. Definitely could not have done it without this great forum James has started and without Forno Bravo!!

    Grazie James.

    Nice, nice.

    I love the tiled roof. I had the same roof in Sicily. Every night in the summer, just at sun down/dusk, the bats would come pouring out of my attic, one at a time from between those tiles. I'd watch them emerge and fly off into the night. Very cool to see. As a renter, you don't really care. If I owned the place, I'd be trying to get them out of there.

      No no, they don't hurt the house and they keep the insects down! I'd love to have bats in our roof, and actually considered building nests for them... but I bet they'd stay empty. Haven't had much luck attracting hedgehogs into the garden so far either...

      Any bats in your oven roof yet?

        Frances; if you'd like i'll ship you our bats. Yes they do keep the bug population down but are quite a pain when they get inside the house. After living here for 14 years i've finally got it down to about 1 a year in the living areas. Although i can't say that about the attic. However if you are looking to keep them around the house for bug control do an internet search for bat houses.

          No bats yet and the way the roof was installed I do not think they will be able to make any nests. I have attached a photo of how I want my finished product to look like. Still debating between cultured or stone veneer. The only product I have found so far in the look I am wanting is a cultured stone. I really do like the overgrout technique though.
