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.

  • New here - Is this the Right Forum for Me?

    Hi eveyone,
    I was googling cooking forums that deal with pizza and found this one.
    I'm a little confused about what's allowed or not allowed here.

    My main interest is making pizza at home using a conventional gas
    oven with a baking stone. I'm looking to refine my pizza recipies.
    It's taken me about 10 years to develop my own recipies and
    techniques for making pizza at home.

    More specifically I'm looking to improve my pizza recipes to
    get my pizza to taste more like the typical pizza you buy at
    your local pizzaria in New Jersey.

    Am I at the right place?
    If so, please point me to the correct forum here.

    Thanks!

    Welcome aboard Pete,

    We have a section of the FB Forum set up for pizza stone pizza -- so this a great place to be. Look around all of the forums on pizza, ingredients, etc. as well as the pizza stone section for techniques.

    Also, your timing is perfect. We are starting work on a Pizza Stone Pizza e-Book in the summer, so you can be part of the process of putting that together. We are going to talking about the various ways people use pizza stones and try to get high, moist heat -- along with pizza dough prep, pizza making, recipes, etc. It should be fun.

      Hi Pete and welcome,
      you can't do much better than here to ask all the questions that you have and also help the novice(s), such as myself to help the with their experiences in pizza preparation and cooking. With 10 years experience, I would like to try some of your 'developed receipes' to the wood fired oven.

            Hi Dave and welcome.
            I am a relatively new member but was inspired to build my Pompeii oven from the information and assistance from this wonderful forum.
            As you will see, I was a little lost when first posting my attempt at the build from the foundations to the almost finished oven at the following links:
            http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f8/n...-1-a-2005.html
            then go to:
            http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f21/...10-a-2119.html
            then to top it off, check out:
            http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f10/...zzas-2117.html
            and the last (tonight in fact):
            http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f25/...-veg-2158.html
            Hope this will get you going. It all took around 3 weeks to get this far and cooking!

            Good luck

              You'll find lots of helpful folks here for your questions, but if your focus in on New Jersey style pizza you might also look at pizzamaking.com for their forum. My feeling is they are not as relaxed as the users here, but you can find lot's of ideas about making a home oven work better for pizza and some recipes that are more focused on NY style pizza - much of what you see here is aimed at VPN pizza napoletana. Use both forums!

                Hey all,

                I am hopeful that we keep building up the pizza technique sections of the FB Forum. I think we have a great bunch of people, with a lot of skill and expertise -- and I really like the way our group feels.

                There definitely are other groups out there, but I like the way we approach questions and build up knowledge. Don't forget to use the e-Books as well.

                  This is the way it starts. Before you know it, you find yourself mixing vermiculite and portland cement in a kiddie pool!

                    Hi,
                    As an uneducated in New Jersy pizza person, could you please try to describe what a New Jersey pizza is like as compared to one you get in Italy, or one of those ghastly things we can buy at the likes of Round Table, Pizza Hut, Dominoes (sp), etc.? Thanks.

                      another week on this forum and Pete will be asking about refractory suppliers in Jersey and which is better vermiculite or perlite.
                      He is starting out the same as me......looking for the way to make the best pizza at home. I tried several stones, several flours, in the oven and on my grill......couldn't find what I was looking for....built the oven, and with much advice from the forum (and several hundred dollars of FB products) I now have what I searched for - GREAT PIZZA
                      Your in the right place Pete, with a little coaching and training you will become a WFO fanatic like the rest of us.
                      Seriously.....I hop you find what your searching for and we can all be a part of it. Good Luck
