Central California 42" Pompeii - 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 Guys and Gals,

    Here is the link to pictures of our build. We finished the dome yesterday. Thanks to all for sharing your journey of the brick oven. I hope ours might add a little to the knowledge base here at Forno Bravo. Thanks again.

    Great job and thank you for posting the link to the album. It's going to make my build a little bit easier going forward.

      Great job, both on the oven and on the presentation. Your pictures tell a great story on putting together a WFO.

      How will you finish the dome? And when do you start your curing fires?

          Hi Jed,

          I am trying to be patient on the curing fires. We are trying to slow the curing process. We finished the capstone on Wednesday so would like to wait for at least a week. I am a complete novice on understanding masonry but read somewhere that at least a week would be good. I don't totally understand the science behind this myself.

          As far as the finish on the dome at first i thought i would build a frame and stucco that hides the dome. I dont think domes in general are that pleasing to the eye but we are going to finish the dome with stucco and ceramic tiles imbedded in the stucco. I dont have a total picture in my minds eye on how it totally looks yet but just like the idea that it will be colorful and fun.

          Thank you for the kind words.

            It is a test of patience to go slow through the curing fires, and to postpone starting the curing fires for at least a week... But it is best for the cement involved.

            Keep us posted on your next steps!
