Olio Nuovo -- The New Oil - 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.

  • Olio Nuovo -- The New Oil

    Here is a translation of an email we just received from our olive oil producer in Florence. Great stuff.

    The first of the new oil has a flavor very accentuated and quite aggressive, with a beautiful green color, resulting from the early harvest of olives that are not yet too mature. In 15-20 days, when the olives become more mature and the color becomes more black, the oil will be less aggressive with a more gentle flavor and a color that will become an intense green. The olive, like any fruit will be bitter when it is younger and more acidic, and more sweet (gentle) when they are more mature. In Toscana we say Young Oil and Old Wine.


    We are working on a plan for air shipping the Olio Nuovo to California, so stay tuned for more details on that.

    Il primo nuovo olio ha un gusto molto accentuato abbastanza aggressivo e di un colore verde molto bello, derivato da olive raccolte non molto mature. Tra 15 o20 giorni quando le olive sarranno mature e diventano di colore nero si ha un olio meno aggressivo con un sapore molto gradevole e cambia anche il colore diventando un verde intenso.Sai le olive sono come tutti i frutti se vengono mangiati acerbi sono aspri se sono maturi sono dolci.Da noi in TOSCANA un proverbio dice. OLIO NUOVO VINO VECCHIO.
