intro - 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.

    I love this site...I'm in!
    I've never laid 1 brick in my life but this site seems to be full of gracious people and ample documentation that I think I can do this! I've even already found a link to the "bricky" tool that may help me out a bit.
    I just downloaded the ebook and am perusing the site. I hope to begin construction in the next 2 weeks or so! Will keep you posted with updates but if anyone has a link to some kind of "i'm a newbie and I did it!" post, let me know!

    Welcome, Nick.

    I'm a newbie and I have about as much experience with brick laying as you. I'm just about to the oven floor building step and I haven't had any issues so far. This forum is full of great info. Good luck!

        I've been beating the drum for the bricky for years. I pretty much hate concrete block, having laid a bunch of it, and if I were to do my project again, I'd build my interior chimney with real brick instead of tile covered concrete block.

        It makes bad bricklayers good, and good ones fast.
