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 am new to the Forno Bravo community. I moved to the Jersey Shore two years ago. This is where I had TRUE Brick-Oven Pizza at a place in Bradley Beach, and a few places up in NYC. They used coal...it was a new experience for me, and never want to have an electric oven cook a pizza again.

    To make a long story short, I have had enough corporate ladder, and am ready to work for myself...then I stumbled upon a Maxey, MOBILE wood-fired pizza oven at an event. I'm in.

    As I am familiarizing myself with finances, legal issues, marketing and other aspects of the business, I can see where if done right...it can't fail.

    The obvious questions to starting a mobile vending/catering pizza business are: (I plan to start out mostly at events and grow clients to make it into the catering side.) Ultimately, I want to do Events AND Catering.

    1) What oven to buy (I like the Concessionaire)
    2) What to use for refrigeration?
    3) WHAT VEHICLE TO TOW? Truck/Cargo Van/SUV? don't want traditional "carnival vending vehicle" 3500lbs.
    4) Where to get food supplies (I plan to attend events in multiple states)
    5) What kind of license does the trailer/oven require? I get the run-around from different insurance agencies.
    6) Legal issues to burn/health. Again, this will vary, but the main problems will be health codes and in some places like CA, they are concerned about fire safety, there is the sink issue, and I rent an apartment right now. Any Tips/Hints?

    Thanks!
Working...
