Pompeii in India - 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.

  • Pompeii in India


    I'm looking to build a Pompeii brick oven. As of now, all I know is that I would like to have a brick oven in which I can cook about 3 pizzas at a time. I have read quite a few posts on the forum. But for the life of me, I couldnt understand the finer details of the plan.

    I intend to document and photograph the construction of the oven extensively.

    You need to download the free plans from the Forno Bravo store...that will help clear up the details. Also, usually you do not need to cook 3 pizzas at one time, as the cook very quickly. You would need at least two people to run an oven cooking 3 pizzas at the same time, one to make pizzas and one to cook them!

      Thanks for the usability suggestion Drake. So, I would need a smaller oven after all. I'll look for plans in the FB Store.

      Thanks again!

        Just visited the store page. I need to have an address in the US or Canada so that I can register at the store and then download the pdf.

        Is there any other way I can download the pdf?

            John, I can ask some of the artisans here and send you information to build a tandoor. I will also send you pictures. Will that help? Are you looking for specific information?

              Where are you in India? I've been through Mumbai, Delhi, Calcutta and have been to Imphal (Manipur) twice for 2 weeks each trip.

              You can build a very cheap oven from clay/cob. I recommend it since you will learn much and have a workable oven for very cheap. From the lessons learned you can better decide how big a fire-brick oven you will later want to build (if you ever need another!) In imphal, I saw much red clay sand/dirt that should be excellent for making a cob/clay oven. As you know many houses are built from cob in your area and there would be much expertise utilzing the same info for a Wood Fired Oven (WFO).

              Check out the thread for my clay oven build & let me know what you think.
