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.

  • Oven Firing Video

    We made our first FB Wood-Fired Video. Very exciting. It is an 11-minute video on oven firing and operation, where we bring a cold oven up to pizza baking temperature. We produced (if you can call it that) the video using a Primavera oven at my house.

    I promise the video production quality will get better (and that my commentary won't) -- but at least we are off and running. I say "uhmmm" a lot. I've been talking about producing a series of videos for a while, and it feels good getting the first one done. The topics are almost endless.

    Let me know what you think. I have posted the video to FB.com, and I will also be making it available on the Forno Bravo channel of YouTube. My goal is the inspire a great deal of conversation about everything I am doing wrong. :-)

    Here is the link:

          Hi Ross,

          Quicktime plays on all computers, so we have decided to only publish in one format (sorry about that). You can download the free player here:

          Apple - QuickTime - Download

          Or, you can watch it on YouTube. It will be there later today.

          Enjoy!

            Here is the YouTube version. I had to cut out 1:40 to fit their 10 minute max, so a couple of transitions are choppy, but it's fun having it out there.

            Take a look.

            More videos to come and comments are appreciated.

              thanks for that its great...very informative

              It would be nice to see the fire being built at the start as it looked like you had made a small cage with the wood..

              great little oven aswell about the same size as mine

                great video - do you have any video of a pizza actually being made? I recently put together a 24" I.D. pizza oven so I am very curious to see how others handle the small size. It seems like you would have plenty of room for a 10-12" pie there. I have not used mine yet as I haven't gotten around to insulating the dome.

                  Great timing. The pizza video (in a 24" Primavera oven) was posted last week. You can find it -- and all of our videos -- here:

                      James,

                      Great vid. I also would be interested in knowing the kind of wood used, and tips in getting it to light and burn so easily. Also it looked like to cut/chopped the wood into about 2-3" wide pieces.

                        Great video James, finally I can see how it is suppose to be done. Seriously, it's good to see the process in order to avoid frustrating mistakes. My only comment was that I had trouble hearing your voice at times, especially when you were bending over taking the temperatures.

                        Flegreo - the secret is dry wood and forearm size pieces, preferably split. Once the oven is hot, the wood should burst into flames almost immediately when added to the fire.

                          Yeah, small wood. Both half-cords I bought (sorta ) are intended for fireplaces and I spend an unfortunately large amount of time chopping it down to much small pieces. Once an oven is 1000 degrees, wood that size catches fire in about five seconds, seriously. It's kind of frightening frankly.
