PDF Pompeii Oven plans - 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.

    Hi Patrick, Marcel and everyone who has put time into helping edit sections of the PDF version of the plans. My thinking is that if everyone can send me what they have, I will take the lead in pulling together the document. I have spent some time recently bringing all of the html content (there's a lot of it) into a single Word document, and have started combining it with the relevant parts of the standard FB installation guides. If everybody can email me what they have on the sections that have worked on, I can bring that content into the document. I can work with .doc files and recommended photos.

    Then, once I have a reviewable draft, I can either post it publically, or sent it out of people who are interested in helping edit it. We can finalize it (or at least create version 1.0), produce the PDF file, and post it on FB.com. I was thinking of posting it in the Forno Bravo Store (for free), because I have been interested in learning how to make the store work with digital goods -- it's something I have been interested in learning about.

    Is this a plan?

    I will wait to hear from folks by email (james@fornobravo.com), which works better for me than Private Messages, and you can send documents and attachments. Otherwise, I have already started the process of building the document, so we should have something relatively soon.

    Thanks for all the files and photos. I am working away at it, and should have something to share pretty soon.

    As I get closer, we get to think about whether we just want a big group edit (to catch typos as well as make recommendations), or if a subset of folks want to see it first, before I post it. I am trying my best to consolidate input from the earlier drafts.

    What do you think?

      I would recommend a beta release to a chosen few. I think it would eliminate a lot of vague / confusing input. Just one opinion.

        Makes sense. Jim has graciously offered to do a round of edits before we release it. Plus, we will always be open to recommendations.
        Thanks Les.
