Pompeii Oven e-book hits 3,000 - 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.

  • Pompeii Oven e-book hits 3,000

    The Pompeii Oven e-book will downloaded some time today for the 3,000th time -- six months after the publication date. That's pretty cool. We are seeing about 25 downloads per day as we move into Autumn.

    I can see that the e-book fills a big need, and reaches a much wider audience than the original web pages.

    So tell a friend, and keep building and cooking. Thanks all.

    Awesome James!

    So nice of you to provide it to the community.

    Not many others would do it for free, especially others in your line of business.

      Thanks Dave,

      My thinking has always been the bigger the community, the better for everyone -- including Forno Bravo. :-) I think the FB ovens happily fit next to site built ovens, and that everybody is different. At one end of the spectrum the fully assembled Toscana oven is the right choice, and for others, the "one brick at a time" works perfectly. You get to pick.

      So far, so good. The community is growing, FB is doing very well, and everybody is having fun.

        I also owe you guys a huge thanks. Forno Bravo proves what a wonderful tool and resource the internet is. While I'm not buying my "heavy" supplies from FB due to shipping costs, I intend to show my appreciation down the road by ordering flour and accessories.

        Thanks again for the great support!
