Brick ovens in Canada - 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.

  • Brick ovens in Canada

    I checked our web site visitor statistics, and found something interesting. 20% of our visitors during a period of time yesterday were from Canada. If the population of the states is about 300M, and Canada is about 33M, then you would expect to see less than 10% Canadian visitors (allowing for other countries visiting the site). Plus, it's winter.

    Any theories on this? Perhaps folks dreaming of spring.

      James, XJ,

      Ever wonder why Canada produces such great comedians? You, like John Candy, must have a highly developed sense of irony and absurdity to put up with winter. Temp changes, hour to hour, are just like mood swings, believe me .

      On the real side, I think Canadians in general are just now finding out about the possibilities of residential pizza and bread ovens. In the Toronto area, the largest population base in the country, there are only about half a dozen bread ovens like mine. True, there are many commercial wood-fired pizza restaurants, quite a few residential ovens among the Italian and Portugese communities, and Tandoor ovens among the Indians and Pakastanis, but hardly any among the general population. Also, new and sometimes very grand houses are being built in areas to the north of the city.

      Add to this the recent coverage of artisan breads and home baking in the press, both magazines and newspapers, and you have increased interest here. Seems to me the time is right.

        I still wonder what James was asking.....20% traffic from Canada eh? But 1/10 the population of the US....I see no specific reason why the Canadians show more interest in WFO's than Americans.....

        ....unless they've heard about your bread oven successes...

          Well, overall, we're a lot more concerned with warmth.
