Just finishing up my stand - 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 finishing up my stand

    Hi all. This is my first post. I am in Birmingham, Michigan (US). Evidently I am building the first residential brick oven in this community because the building department acted very perplexed when I described what I was doing. They found the project interesting though.

    I'll post photos in a second. So far it looks just like the Forno Bravo instructions!

    I am curious if your building department required any permits. I too must have been the first in my community to build a residential oven. The planning department scratched their head, told me I didn't need a permit from them and sent me to the fire department. The fire department said it was the most over engineered "BBQ" they had ever seen, told me I didn't need a permit fromthemand sent me to the zoning department. By the time I got to they zoning department they told me they had already heard of me, did not need to see a copy of my plans and I didn't need a permit from them either. So, $0 in permits. Needless to say I kept all of the names of the city official I spoke to in case someone changes their mind down the road.

    My project is just a couple of week ahead of yours. I just finished the solider row. So for so good. Good luck to you,

      Yet another reason to live in beautiful Billings, Montana! Here in Birmingham, they want to charge me $90 for a permit. I think the rule of thumb is: if it needs a foundation it needs a building permit.

      I am on the road for the next couple of weeks in Asia so you will get way ahead of me Sharon!
