Olympia WA 36 inch build - 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.

  • Olympia WA 36 inch build

    FINALLY !!!

    After almost 3 years on the forum I have started my build. Although I should not complain about the delay. The time I have spent reading on the forum has changed my plans about 25 times ( for the better). I would encourage everyone to spend lots of time reading on the forum. The information here is priceless !!
    The current ( and best) plan approved by SHMBO is a Parilla (Argentine BBQ), a 7 ft prep counter and a 36 corner install pompei oven. I am a bit of a scrounge so I have been collecting materials for 2 years for this project. I have firebrick, fireclay, CMUs, wall bricks and sections of chimney ready to go (total cost to date is $200). I will be buying concrete and lime as I go.
    Yesterday I poured the foundation for the Parilla. Six inches of 5/8 gravel and 6 inches of concrete with rebar.
    Today I stacked the CMUs and started the framing for the Parilla slab.
    Since I live in earthquake country I decided to use a seperate foundation for the Pompei and Parilla. The counter top between them will have a smaller foundation...just enough to support the granite countertops. I am hoping that if I have any earth movements there will be less damage with individual footings rather than a continous footing.
    I'll start posting pictures soon.

      Nice! Scrounging is the way to go, if you have more time than money like you and I.
