Xabia Vaughn.... - 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.

  • Xabia Vaughn....

    I cannot take all the credit for the meals and recipes.....I'll take credit for posting them. I'm the fire tender, photographer, writer and WFO cook. My better half Vaughn get's equal or more credit for all the great food and recipes. I skip deserts 'cause I've got her!!

    We both love to cook and have always made our own food at home. We eat out rarely preferring to cook and enjoy our own foods. (And in recent years Vaughn is having cholitis problems with antiobiotics in commercial meats and also the MSG additive. I'm dealing with elevated blood sugar so eating more complex/whole grain/high fiber foods is important.) We like to eat and enjoy the company of family, friends and neighbors we've come to know.

    Vaughn collects cookbooks so we have a few shelves of reference material. One of our first cookbooks was a "Bread and Soup" cookbook that was well used during the long Keeweenaw winters on Lake Superior. She will tend to read through the recipes looking for something interesting, bounce a few ideas off me and check the pantry for ingredients before heading to the store.

    We collaborate on the WFO meal plans and preparation. For one of the bakes we plan it the previous day, pull out and pick up ingredients....and usually try a new recipe. (I like to modify any recipes but I'm never allowed to do this on the first try though!) We usually cook a lot when we do it (like 10 or 20 quarts of soup/spaghetti/chili/beans and freeze them in ziplocs for easy freezing and future meals. With the WFO, we will enjoy the food over the next few days.

    Vaughn is a great cook all by herself. She's also takes good care of the kitchen. I like the dishwasher! She's cleaning and I'm maintenance. We work hard and play hard!

    I've adopted my fathers toast:

    Salut, (Health, always keep working on it)

    Amor (Love, that's her, keep working on that too!)

    Pesetas, (Money of Spain before the Euro)

    Y Tiempo Para Guzar (and Time to Enjoy IT)

    He lived until he was 87 so I do believe he had lots of time to enjoy life.
    Richer or poorer, there is a lot of life we can all enjoy and food is one of them!
    Life is short, take the time to enjoy it!

    Keep it going Jim. I definitely think we should collaborate on the Spanish recipe section of the FB.com cooking pages. Recipes, photos, and dare I say it -- video!

        I second the request, if possible, for a recipe collection from Spain.

        Thanks for all the wonderful pictures, ideas and suggestions. They brighten my morning and also make me jealous

          For the less ambitious, this is the toast I remember:

          Salud, y fuerza del canut!

          Hasta ya,

          "I started out with nothing, and I've still got most of it"

            You definitely have my vote, too. Your recipes are clear, concise, well written and have a very marked Spanish flavor to them. Videos would be a fine addition, though the learning curve, for me at least, was a bit steep at first.

            Keep it coming. James, how about "World Cuisine from Forno Bravo"?
