Just finishing the pompeii project - 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.

  • Just finishing the pompeii project

    I just finished the hardest portions of the project and have started to heat up the oven.

    I have ramped it up to 800 without a problem and dragged out the coals and sealed it up at 650 at the top.

    Does anyone have any info on what to expect on the heat retention of the oven? My door temp at zero hour was 450 (inside is about 50 degrees hotter) and at 13 hours it was 300 at the door and 350 inside. At 23 hours it was 295 inside taken with an infrared thermometer.

    Does anyone have similar data? Or should it hold heat longer?

    I will ramp it up to full temp next week and monitor the temp.

    I threw some garlic heads with olive oil and some onions in - no sense wasting a good fire!

    Anyone with comments on heat retention experiences would be appreciated.
