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.

  • Getting Started - Italiano Forni Build

    Hi Guys,

    I have finally started the build for a stand for my dome cast oven.

    I have used the plans by Horrocks007
    http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f2/m...ans-15465.html

    And gone down the route of building a wooden stand so a big thanks for Horrocks007 and the guys on the thread with providing support.

    I had started to build my stand a couple of days ago and nearly finished it yesterday evening (couple of more joists to add on top and bottom).

    I still need to add the paving slabs on top and then start the base for the oven.

    I chose to go with 4x4 fence posts for the legs and after the advise from the above thread I was going to use 6x6, but could not source any locally.

    Instead of the 4 posts I then decided to go for 6 by providing 2 extra posts in the centre. The rest of the frame was made by 6x2's.

    The stand itself seems to be solid and as a test three average men stood on top without any movement....

    By the way does anybody own an Italiano Forni Pizza Oven who could forward me some instructions on the build?

    I bought the oven from eBay and tried getting the installation instructions from the Manufacturers website without any joy.

    I managed to send him an email and call him, but he seems to be not interested and not willing to send me the instructions he provides at time of sale. His reasoning was something to do with people copying his design so he does not send anything out??

    Not a very helpful man so lets hope the oven is better than the after sales.

      Did they stand there for many years to see what movement will occur in the timber frame?
      Didnt think so......

      You need to add some sort of cross bracing to stop the whole thing from racking.

        I think you are on the wrong website.....

        Edit:-

        Just googled the oven, what a waste of money, the flue is in the middle of the oven roof......bahahahaha.......all the heat will just escape up the flue......

          I understand it's not a Forno Bravo kit, but I assumed this was a forum where I could get support regardless.

          The flue is towards the front on mine, but I agree it isn't as good as some other designs, but the budget I had restricted what I could get and to be honest with what I paid I wont be expecting too much from it.

            What would you suggest brickie, top to bottom corners or all on either top or bottom?

            I was planning on adding some concrete blocks under the stand as extra support, but not physically mounting them to the stand.

            The idea is to have the stand for about 3 years max and then move the oven to a more permanent area after an out house gets built in my garden.

              Top to bottom diagonal bracing would really help.

                  You could build a much better one yourself for a little bit more.

                    How's it going? Looking forward to seeing your results!

                    Too bad the flue is on the ceiling. You think you could seal it off with high heat mortar and put a new one in the front? Would make your oven a LOT better.
