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.

  • Forno Bravo Artigiano Details

    I feel very lucky to have met and gotten to know Sig. Marcello, the builder of the Forno Bravo Artigiano ovens. Not everyone has heard the story, but when we first started selling his ovens in the states, he was nervous about us, and wouldn't let me see inside his workshop. Rightfully, he didn't want to lose his trade secrets. But now after some time, and a very good response to his ovens in the states, we got together and he let me back there.

    Sig. Marcello has been building brick ovens for over 20 years. He learned the trade from his partner in the business and mentor, who passed away a couple of years ago. They built ovens side by side all those years. Before that, he was a talented mason who worked at the Villa Frescobaldi (the winery) while he was in his 20s.

    The workshop has ovens at various stages of production through the shop floor. His bricks are made in Salerno (in the south).

    The photos below show an arch and vent they have started making, along with a couple of ovens.

    We're lucky to be able to get our hands on them.

    My oven is starting to look like one of these. Are there any photos available that show how he ties his opening arches into the dome bricks?

      Sorry Nick, I don't have those. In fact, I really not supposed to show any pictures of his processes -- it's his trade secret.
