almost ready to go in Chicago - 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.

  • almost ready to go in Chicago

    Hi Everyone, this forum is really a fantastic resource, I am getting close to getting started on an oven in Chicago, I am pretty much committed to proceeding with a 36" dia oven on a solid limestone stand (built from salvaged foundation material) oven enclosure yet to be determined, I plan to build the higher tuscan dome type, which seems a bit more suited to my needs, (and maybe more fun to build?) I'd be interested in hearing about other ovens in urban city yards.

    Congratulations, and have fun with your project. Its a little unnerving to plunge into these uncharted waters (I had NO building experience whatever), but it is so satisfying to cook in an oven that you built yourself and see what artistic flair arises in the process. Good luck

      The challenge to urban constructors is chimney height. Code calls for 2 feet above anything within 10 feet, and population density would mean low chimney = irate neighbors. Urban building inspectors have less of a laise-faire attitude, as well.

      I'm in a fairly dense inner suburb. My chimney is twenty feet off the ground.
