Oven Doors - 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.

      Re: Oven Doors

      Here's my door, and the only problem so far has been the wood cupping badly from the inside drying out more than the outside. I'm going to try straightening this (rehydrating inside) and cross laminating another layer of wood vertically in strips with alternating grain in hopes of minimizing cupping.

        Here is the link to the post for the door I built for our Pompeii.


        We have been using the oven (and door) for a couple months now, and I am happy with the way the door works. I would prefer if the door weighed just a bit less, it is not a feather light...

        One objective I had when building this door was to create a thermal 'break' from the hot side to the cold side. On that count this door works fine.

        Good luck with your build.
