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 First Pizza!

    Here is a photo of the first pizza out of our oven!

    This is a hallmark to make it to this point in the process, to have come up with the idea, do the research, find Forno Bravo, plan and build an oven, and then produce great food,,, Pizza from a WFO...

    Following a receipt from another on this forum, we produced five dinner pizza's, all with red sauce and a variety of toppings (vegetables, meats, and cheeses), and the final pizza was the 'chocolate and marshmallow' desert pizza (photo attached...). With an adult audience, mixed opinions on the resulting desert pizza...

    I look forward to developing some skill at attaining and keeping pizza temperatures in the oven, but in the mean time, will spend a little more time cooking and will be satisfied with these results.

    Thanks to all for the information provided through Forno Bravo who helped with this project..

    Congratulations! Your oven will continue to dry out and will get hot easier as it does.

        And you thought that building the oven was fun.
        Well, now the real fun starts (with a few occassional dissapointments) when you start making and playing with different receipes and food types.

        Enjoy!!!!

            Running the oven and cooking will get easier.

                Thanks for the kind words everyone,

                The pizza's were great, and we had a great time putting the event together.

                I have a list about a full page long of people I've committed to invite over for pizza, so we are looking forward to many pizza events this summer, experimenting with different receipts, and putting the finishing touches on the oven (we might be cooking but the work isn't done!).

                This is the second pizza to come out of the oven, and it was good also!

                      Re: The First Pizza!

                      Well, I didn't do a very good job at watching the watch...

                      I did a very good job of supervising the consumption of beer, however!

                      My best guess is that with oven dome temp of around 650 f, the pizza was in the oven for about three or four minutes... (maybe a bit more?)

                      It was a tasty pie... I do remember that part!

                        Congratulations! I remember when I first heard the words "this is the best pizza I have ever eaten". I have been making pizzas about 7 months now and this weekend's was the best. I had been cooking the pizzas at too high a temp for awhile, and they tended to char. By backing the heat off to about 750 or 800, they still cooked in 90 seconds, but were evenly cooked, and thanks to Dave in San Angelo (asudavew) I am better at throwing the dough. In the future plan a little more to include a nice pork shoulder or pot roast to stick into the oven after it is cooling down. You will learn to hate wasting the wonderful heat! Good luck

                          Definitely take advantage of the retained heat.
                          It makes excellent goodies the next day~

                            Don't forget about things like oven dried tomatoes and fruits as well on the second day and sometimes the third day.

                              Hey Dutch,

                              How do you dry fruit in the oven? Just cut into desired size, lay out on a cookie sheet, stick in the oven with the door closed until done? What temp do you try to start at?

                              I'm thinking this may be one of the finest uses of the WFO, if I can figure out the basics on how to dry things...

                              Thanks,
