Hello from NoVa - 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.

  • Hello from NoVa

    Hi All,

    I'm located in Northern Virginia and just joined the Forno Bravo forum a few weeks ago and I have been lurking for about a month. I'm new to wood fired ovens but when I found this site and realized I could build one I knew it was somthing I wanted out in my yard to be able to cook in and enjoy. I'm excited about the thoughts of cooking my own pizza and bread and all the other meals that can be prepared in a WFO. Unfortunately I will have to wait a little while as in reality this project for me is a year or two away. But in the mean time I am absorbing all the knowledge I can from this forum to hopefully build a stove that will be able to come close to all the others I have seen on this forum.

    I’m still trying to understand all that goes into designing and building a WFO which brings me to one of my first, of I’m sure many, questions? Not that I have anything against pencil and paper but where does everyone get the CAD software for designing their WFO. I’d love to be able to design down to the detail I’ve seen in these drawings. Are these folk’s professionals in the CAD field or is there some software out there that the average guy can learn and use that I haven’t been able to find?

    Many use the free Google sketchup.

    If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
    Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
    An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

      Thanks Lburou,

      I've heard of sketchup but never dabbled in it to ever see what it could really do.

      Also great "Advice" link. Looks like more good reading ahead of me!
