New Restaurant - 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.

    I am in the planning phases of opening a brick oven pizza place. I want to build my own oven, and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or advice for a first timer?

    I am going to follow the plans available on this website, and modify them so I can build a larger oven. If anyone knows of any plans available for commercial wood-fired ovens, I would greatly appreciate links or downloads. Thanks.

    Your plan to follow the plans is a good one. There are several larger ovens out there. Finding them may be difficult though. this one and this one are two notable examples of larger oven builds.

    Keep to the plans and you will be fine, just make it a little larger. There is a consensus here that space for more than three pizzas is overkill since three is about all most of can handle at one time. In a commercial situation, it won't be much more than that....Remember, this oven design will cook a pizza in two minutes, more or less, and it needs to be turned while you are cooking it.

    Good luck!

    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.
