Newbie in SW Washington - 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.

  • Newbie in SW Washington

    Hello to all of you: I have really enjoyed and benefited from reading your posts about building and operating your ovens. I would like to thank Jim and his staff who make this all possible as I never would have started a project like this without this type of support.

    I have actually been working on my oven since August. I have benefitted from a mild fall in the NW and have really enjoyed my time in the backyard working on the oven. I have completed the dome and vent and am now building the chimney (two 8.5" x 8.5" X 12" flue liners stacked on top of each other surrounded by bricks). I am pretty slow, but once the chimney is complete, it will be on to insulating the dome.

    Attached (I hope) is a picture of my progress as of early December 2008. In the near future, I will post additional pictures that detail some of the history of my build. It doesn't always look great but has been loads of fun so far (except for throwing out my back with improper lifting techniques... not so much fun there, but have also learned to lift properly).

    Best Regards, Mike G.

    Your dome looks great!

    And it appears you have a cover over the work area to keep it dry as you proceed, and that is good.

    Glad to see you are inside today, the weather reports from your side of the mountains are bleak! We have a bit of snow, and pretty cold, but not the ice problems ya'll have on the west side...

    Glad to see you posting to the forum, there is a growing number of WFO users in the Northwest, and it is great to see your project and compare notes.

    Keep the pictures coming!
