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.

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

          Re: Home made timber pizza peel.

          Hello All,

          Is there a recommended wood that is good for a peel? My city has several hardwood supply stores and a variety of woods available at Lowe's and Home Depot. I think a straight grained wood that is lightweight and not sappy would be useful. Basswood, poplar, alder, come to mind, but there must be others that meet our needs too. What are your thoughts for a first time peel project? Thickness, dimensions, etc.

          Cheers,
          Bob

            I made 4 peels from 6mm plywood. On either side of the handles I put 2 strips of 40x20 rounded Tassie oak trim which makes them easier to hold and ridgid enough to use. To make them a bit more waterproof and allow me to wash them down I rubbed a couple of coats of olive oil into them before using them.

            It is now much easier to make up multiple pizzas and place them in the oven to cook. I still use my metal peel to turn & remove. I'll add a couple of pics later

                I'll let you know if it kills me I don't think that the dough stays on there long enough to be a problem.

                  That is a lovely peel, the only thing it is missing is a pizza upon it.

                    I was more concerned about the heat of the oven driving off the nasties.

                        I just use my plywood peels to place the pizza in the oven so it is only in there for 5 seconds. With multiple peels I can make several pizzas and pop 3 in the oven at once to cook. I find it much easier to feed larger crowds this way.
