Hello from Michigan - 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 Michigan

    My name is Jeff and I'm researching wood fired brick ovens, to build one myself. I've read The Bread Builders, and then got onto this site and am leaning more toward the quicker-heating dome-shaped pizza style oven. I want to bake bread more than just pizzas, but want to use as little wood as possible to do it, since I also heat the house with wood. No commercial-sized venture, just a few loaves a week. Living in the great, often white, north, I'd like to be able to use it in the winter without clearing a ton of snow to get to and fire it up. So I'm looking at various ways to make at least the landing area an indoor feature. Don't think I'm ready to remodel the house for it, but I could incorporate it into the wood shop addition I'm planning for my wood shed, or a free-standing unit close to the house. I've got lots of construction experience and pretty good masonry skills. Just looking for a cost-effective way to build a multipurpose oven. From what I've read, this is a great forum with many helpful members. Glad to be a part of it.

      Thanks buckeye. Though this winter has been unusually mild, I'm planning to build for the worst, or at least a normal winter. Where in Ohio? My lovely bride is from the Akron area. Look forward to seeing pics of your project.
