yo, that dome is HOT - 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.

  • yo, that dome is HOT

    Has anyone noticed that the dome clearing--the soot burning off and the bricks getting white hot--has a smell? It's not like any other part of the fire smell, but when it happens, it sets off my internal timer that tells me 45 minutes to pizza!

    Sorry - there is no way I am sticking my head into the oven to see if there is a smell.

      yea, I know, It's officially arm hair and eyebrow makeover season.

      Really though, it comes out of the chimney, and it's the signal to get my prep in order!

          Being the old steam train buff from my youth that I am, the smell reminds me of all the old trains that I used to enjoy watching.

            It is the "creosote' smell from the burning off of the soot layer.

              yea. I think it smells like diesel fuel or a house fire. Which might be why it freaked me out the first couple of times I noticed it. Now---ahhh. I am sickly addicted to the whole WFO aroma. And the food, of course. But really, just the smell of some WFO action makes me so happy.

                The "creosote" smell will go away very quickly and indicates you have reached a high enough temperature to burn the oven "white".
