Just starting our outdoor oven adventure - 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.

  • Just starting our outdoor oven adventure

    We're Ama and Papa. We love to cook outdoors, whether in our backyard or camping. Papa built a full sized pig roaster a couple of years ago, used it a couple of times, then repurposed much of it and a couple other wood, coal and gas burning units we had, to make one very versatile (and large) "grill" that works great. Now we're expanding our outdoor cooking facilities and are ready to start our adobe oven within the next few weeks. Ama (me) will design and Papa will employ his vast building skills to execute while I supervise. I am taking a class in Grand Marais, MN in July 2012, about baking with ancient grains and hearth baking. We've already gained a great deal of knowledge from reviewing others' posts on this forum. We'll also post photos and details as we progress.

    You have come to the right place to study about wood fired ovens and hearth breads.

    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.
