Greetings from Coburg Oregon! - 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.

  • Greetings from Coburg Oregon!

    I've been lurking for awhile and finally decided to register. My oven can't get hot enough for real pizza, so I guess it's essential that I get a wood fired oven (at least that is what I told my wife ).

    Welcome japhroaig! That is the same experience with me. I tried for years rigging up systems with bricks and baking stones inside kitchen ovens and gas grills before deciding that there was no way around this massive project. Great pizza and bread can be made without one, but it is no good knowing that you can do much better.

      Re: Greetings from Coburg Oregon!

      Welcome & greetings from North Carolina: It looks like we joined the forum at the same time. Why not do as I have done to cure the WFO itch and build a cob oven until you decide where and how big to build, etc. Plus you can learn a lot along the way, have a lot of fun, have a completed oven earlier, and have a backup oven, etc.

      Check out my cob/clay oven thread:
      http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f43/...ild-12388.html

      I definitely want to build a full brick oven, but it has been very satisfying working with the earth and having an oven that cost only perhaps a hundred dollars. (including block, etc.) If you have access to used block etc. and want to scout around for building materials you could have a semi-permanent oven for even less. I recommend at the least you buy and use firebrick for the hearth and vermiculite/concrete mix (5 to 1 mixed very dry) under the firebrick.

      Give it a try or start building the permanent oven: otherwise your gonna keep itching for some flame!!! Regardless best of luck and let me know your status!

        Hey Bruced; find any gold nuggets out there in Placerville, CA?? I've been panning before but only got "flour" and flakes. A nice nugget could pay for your WFO!! Ha Ha.

            I wish! your knowledge of geography is impressive. There are buried goldmines all over this town, and we are just up the hill from Coloma, the site that started the gold rush.

            That oven looks great. Maybe I should consider starting that way, but I am about ready to pour my foundation. Otherwise it may take a year or longer!

              Good luck and have fun with your oven build. Keep a thread of your build and I will track: I'll surely need advice when I build my permanent Pompeii oven.
