pizza oven raises $4,500 for school - 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.

  • pizza oven raises $4,500 for school

    Pizza oven does Good Deed.

    We donated a pizza oven to our local elementary school in Healdsburg,
    and it was the hit of the auction, raising $4,500 for the school
    after heated bidding. We weren't there, but we've been promised a
    photo of the winner.

    Jim, weren't you going to build one for your church?

      Our priest wants me to but we've a small disagreement right now. They
      just presented this year's budget and are looking for an extra 15% in
      collections because "revenue is flat". The problem is that expenses
      are up -- things like an $8,000 dining room set, a used pickup truck
      for the priests to use (they both also have cars -- an Audi & a BMW
      for which we pay the insurance/maint/upkeep), a new "discretionary
      charity fund" which the priests get to use to spread the wealth to
      those they feel particularly attuned to (on top of the $200,000 a year
      we already donate as a parish to various charitable & diocesan
      collections)...and of course there's the newly hired staff (we've
      doubled our administrative costs over the past 3 years)...I suggested
      that perhaps we have a spending problem. I pointed out that arguing
      that income was flat or down was due to declining attendance but that
      we needed more staff, etc. because needs were growing seemed in conflict.

      It's probably far more straightforward to do it your way -- a flat
      donation to the local school would eliminate all the politics &
      personal feelings at play.
