Intro/Hello from Michigan, USA - 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.

  • Intro/Hello from Michigan, USA

    Just a quick note to say hello and thank you for making the plans and this forum available to us all. I've got ZERO masonry/building experience, but am constantly striving to expand my cooking horizons.

    I cant wait for the snow to melt here in Michigan to start my first oven!!!

      I agree, enough of the snow already. I'm in Saginaw. I also have zero masonry skills. Looks like we are in the same boat together this spring! I've been looking at this forum all winter. The members of this forum have been putting out some amazing ovens!

        Hey Windknot,
        Welcome. Winter's a great time to read up, plan your build, find local suppliers, and if necessary, get a building permit. Look forward to seeing your progress.

        Don't forget to buy or cut wood now so that its ready when you need it.
        Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

          Fullback - I'm west of Saginaw in Thomas Twp. - It appears as though mfiore and I are neighbors.

          mfiore - how far into the process have you gone? I had not ever considered an outdoor pizza oven till I read an article in the Detroit Free Press about Mario Batali - he owns a home up in Leland on Grand Traverse Bay - they mentioned that he had a pizza oven outside and that he was cooking on it all the time when he was up there.....and I just couldnt get the thing out of my mind - two steps later and i'm on the Forno Bravo website. I've never been a big pizza chef, nor a baker, but sure would be neat to have.

            What a great forum to pull people out of the woodwork! It seems Windknot and myself are within 10 miles of each other!

            Windknot, I have not started my oven yet. Still a great deal to plan and consider. I hope to start after the spring thaw. I have a pizza passion, and have been frustrated with the lack of quality pizza in our area. Looks like you and I will soon have the best pizza in town!!

              I say screw al gore, Here in rockford michigan we can use all of the global warming we can get (and if I get my hands on punksatony phil I will stuff him in the oven with fava beans and a nice chiante (Im sure misspelled) Anyway good to hear from fellow michiganders (michiganians?) Good luck with the project, I tend to loose interest in projects quite quickly, but planned my oven for 2 years, and have been using it weekly for 2 more, so I guess its stuck.

                Yes, small world sometimes...particularly with the internet.

                Welcome neighbors! There's plenty of information and inspirations here at FB. Start reading and asking questions. Masonry work can be intimidating but it's not bad once you get going. Same with the cooking

                Start planning and collecting stuff for your ovens.....

                Hmmm....maybe a friendly competition on who can get from zero to pizza first?

                good luck
