Update on Pompeii e-Book - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community

Announcement

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.

  • Update on Pompeii e-Book

    I thought I would take a second to catch everybody up on what is happening with the Pompeii Oven e-Book. To date, the plans have been downloaded over 700 times, and are averaging almost 10 dowloads per day. The plans are going to virtually every part of the world, and we have ovens being built in a wide range of countries. The download and registration system seems to be working well. That all feels pretty good.

    Also, I have exchanged a series of messages with Norbert Senf, who manages the Heatkit.com (MHA) web site, and they have made a nice mention of the FB e-Books and the FB forum, which we appreciate very much. I have invited him for contributions to the Wood-Fired Pizza e-Book, so we'll see what happens there.

    The Habitat for Humanity e-Books have been ordered 18 times, so with matching funds from FB, we're up to $360. That's good.

    We are maintaining a list of recommended improvement to the next version of the plans, and there is a Sticky thread where you can post additions. For now, I think the version is stable and we will do an update at some point in the future. Some great ovens and nice improvements and techniques have been developed quite recently, so there is room for improvement.

    I promise to set up our own Wiki pages (it's on my to do list).

    That's all I have -- let me know if anyone has something to add.
