Hello from Calgary - 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.

  • Hello from Calgary

    Hey guys, just stumbled upon this site and have found it to be a great tool for research. Thanks for the info and with any luck I'll be starting an oven in the spring!

      Hey, another hello from Calgary,
      Just joined this site, it's great...
      I’ve been itching to build an oven for a while; it must be embedded in the Italian DNA, which I am a proud possessor of. My Dad in Argentina has built one, years ago, and we use it not only for bread or pizza, but amazing BBQ’s, beef racks, half a pig, lamb etc. The size is pretty descent, but I’m going to go for a smaller (entry level) oven. I am still trying to find out where to buy clay or refractory mortars and bricks..
      Bezz, have you had any luck on this? Where did you get your materials from?
      Thank you in advance..

          Oh no, we're big meat eaters, so more like a beef half rack of ribs, half a lamb or pig... I'm thinking on a Russian type of oven, long and narrow..

              Aha! Their name came up during my search but didn't know if they would sell small amounts.. they sounded like a wholesale type of shop.
              Thanks for your note, my search is over!! I’ll drop by their location this week..

                Bezz, Calyponte, Cefacibey,

                How goes your builds?
                If you are interested, I found some large bags of Caputo flour at the Italian Market on Edmonton Trail and about 20th St. It is not on the shelves, but in the back room. They have not put it out because the shipment came in past its best before date. Flour keeps forever if it is stored properly so I don't think the best before date is an issue. They also have San Marzano Tomatos. Ask for Marco. If the best before date bothers you, have a look around, you will find small bags of 00 flour, but a different brand.
                I also found Mozza de Buffa at Springbank Cheese, watch the best before dates though.
                I live in Cochrane and built my oven last year. Still not finished as I still need to stucco the outside... next year country now. Makes great pizzas, roasts, turkeys, roasted apples, etc. It has become the talk of the neighborhood.

                  Hey Calyponte, did you require any building permit for the oven? did you do it outside?

                    Have you guys done your ovens? Did you have to get a permit? I built an Argentine brick BBQ and now I want more, so planning to build a pizza oven beside it. I'd like to get some feedback from you.

                      Hi guys, How long did it take to get built? do you use it in the fall?
