Hooray! - 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.

    Another brick oven is born and what is great - its mine!...
    I fired it up to continue curing the oven but the fire was sooo good
    that we decided to do some cooking in it. Today it was just a
    chicken. But tomorrow we will have some salmon and focaccia.

    Yay!!! In light of your patience factor <grin> you may find it
    cracking. Despair not. Just get a tube of Furnace Cement (not mortar).
    It comes in tubs or caulking tubes...the tube is perfect.

    Ignore the instructions and pop a fire in the oven. This will open up
    the crack a bit. Then go through with your caulking gun and apply the
    cement to the crack. Be generous. You need heat to set it and since
    the outside doesn't get very hot, you need to have a fire going inside
    to open the crack and to get the cement hot enough to set. If it's a
    pesky crack and you need to reapply, grind a slight groove with an
    angle grinder along the crack or use a church-key or screwdriver to
    groove it a bit before going the cement route.

    Once the cement has a chance to cure it's as good (maybe better) as
    new. Furnace cement has a 2000F temp rating (which is why you want it
    & not the furnace mortar).
