Unsolicited Plug for FB and James` crew - 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.

  • Unsolicited Plug for FB and James` crew

    A long time lurker about to build, I wanted to thank James for this site which I have been reading long enough to recall the original plan to put the insulating layer under the concrete base! The main purpose of this post is to encourage others to follow my example and support FB by buying its products instead of shopping hard locally where the difference (relative to total expense) is not that great. After 2 or 3 calls and helpful advice from FB, I ordered 6 bags of Refmix, 3 boards and 2 blankets that shipped next day and arrived in good shape w/i the week. Heatstop 50 was cheaper here, the comparable boards somewhat more and blankets less but I felt it important to say thanks for this extraordinary site even if shipping took me to a bit higher price overall. I have the security of knowing I`m getting the "right stuff" and the satisfaction of supporting a generous and hugely helpful vendor whose site has given me the info I needed to take on another oven (I built an Alan Scott that took forever and never worked because I skipped the insulating layer and build the oven right on a fieldstone base!).It seemed the least I could do in exchange for FB`s help.

    I wish I could add to this...but you have expressed mine (and many others) sentiments exactly. Great post.

    Lets not leave out all of the very helpfull and knowledgable members James has been able to attract.
