Recommended changes should be viewable - 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.

    (JB) "Recommended changes "Hello all,
    The Pompeii Oven plans are being downloaded at a good clip, so I think it is time to make a place where everyone can make recommendations for changes, bug fixes and improvements.

    The current version is V1.2.

    Post your recommendations here, and we will make sure they are included in the next release.


    (M) Hi, James,

    (M) Since so much work and over one year in time went into the revised plans for oven construction, wouldn't you agree that your request

    (JB) "to make a place where everyone can make recommendations for changes, bug fixes and improvements."

    (M) should justify a non-overwritable thread? I had to steal this thread from XabiaJim and chose it because it was an old thread from Feb. 20th, but any FB Forum member could just as easily "hijack" this thread and once again serious contributors would have no place to turn for placement of their suggestions.

    (M) Please consider maintaining the integrity of at least this thread so that recommended changes have a permanent home.

    Re: Recommended changes should be viewable

    Hello Marcel,
    I can see that the Recommended Changes posting was working its way down the queue, and could become harder to find. I have removed of couple of the postings that were "sticky" at the top of the Forum section, and have "stuck" recommended changes to the top, where it will stay. That way we can keep adding recommendations and makes sure we catch everything each time we release a new version of the plans.

    I was thinking about the best way of keeping track of "how to find materials" and will take care of that next.

    Hope this helps.
