Greetings from Paris - 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.

  • Greetings from Paris

    Hello all,

    We are working our way back to CA from Florence, taking a week in Paris and a week in the UK seeing family. I am going to have pretty sporadic Internet access while we are traveling, so I won't be very active in the group.

    Keep up the good work and keep building and cooking!

    Where are you visiting in England? I grew up in the North close to Scotland.

      Gloucester. Carrie grew up in London, we met in Cambridge (computer company) and her family is now out west.

      I think the rental car can do the drive in its sleep.

      On another topic -- we went to boulangerie Poilane yesterday! The bread is incredible, there was a line to get in, and they even let me downstairs to take photos of the oven. I will post the photos later.

        Ah! Pain Poilâne au Levain Naturel – one of the major factors in motivating me to build an oven!

        I don’t know about you, James, but the idea of queueing for around 10-15 minutes along a narrow footpath, ordering a specific number of slices of their wonderful sourdough bread, having it weighed and paying for just what you require is – well – distinctly foreign to me. It took me a mere mouthful to understand why Parisians are happy to do this each time they want a slice or two.
