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.

  • Oven plans to Genova

    We received a request for the Pompeii oven e-Book from a builder in Genova today. How cool is that. Maybe we should start translating the book back into Italian. :-)

    Re: Oven plans to Genova

    Huh? My experiences in Southern Italy led me to believe that there was no such thing as a do it yourself project. The locals always called someone to do even the easiest of jobs. My landlord was perplexed that I could even begin to diagnose, and even more perplexing, be correct as to the cause of the plumbing problems I was experiencing in my villa.

    There's got to be tons of professional oven builders in his/her area of Genova. Something's changing - a way of life I guess. Perhaps the cost of building. Good for Forno Bravo in the end. Congrats James. The circle is compete.

      There is a saying in the UK.........."taking coals to Newcastle" I guess Italians getting plans for ovens would be covered by this.

          Well, the saying "taking coals to Newcastle" translates as "carrying owls to Athens" in German. Owls being a type of coin (with an owl on, surprisingly enough) and Athens being a rich city... or isn't that what you meant?

            That's a new one for me. Great learning new things.

            I heard back from Sig. Luzzati, and he said he did all of his Internet research and that our plans and site are the best.

                    OK, none of us have mentioned how fantastic this is for James. We all evolve and look to be more independant, whether as individual, or regional (organic). James, this is fantastic. You need to protect your plans from being copied and patented by others, if not already. Through your gracious ways, we have been able to build our own successful ovens. The details may have been shared, and maybe we help you modify the techniques, but this is YOURS. Share the details in different languages, that is the power that is loved, appreciated, and respected worldwide. Imagine what would happen if you had various languages to this? I say, do it.
                    An excellent pizza is shared with the ones you love!

                      Grazie, James. A good lesson. (again)

                      Congrats again on the Genova connection. You shared a version of an ancient, or at least, a very old plan to build an oven based on current materials and methods. I don't think you can patent a plan or method that has been in use for a couple of thousand years. You should, however, be justifiably be proud that your website has become something of a gospel for building an authentic Italian oven, even for Italians. That is very noteworty in itself and hopefully, a just a glimpse at the future you envisioned when you started this project. I have no doubt that the spreading of "the word" will benefit FB in the future.

                        When I started my internet search on building pizza ovens, the first page I came accross was one in German about an oven made of cast concrete. And I'm going, wow cool, I want to do that!

                        ...Then I found this site.

                        Which has to be the best on the net. Anyone searching the internet for WFO plans in English (rather than, say, buying a book on the subject) is likely to end up here. So is it really that surprising that an Italian should turn up, along with all the other nationalities?

                        But yes, its still very cool!
