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.

  • Call for Pizza Ingredients

    We are collecting a group of imported pizza ingredients that we are going to provide through the Forno Bravo web site. Here is what we have found so far:

    Caputo Pizza Flour
    San Marzano tomatoes
    EVOO
    Italian anchovies in olive oil (glass jar) -- excellent
    Italian tuna in olive oil (glass jar) -- excellent
    Salt cured capers -- excellent
    Sicilian oregano on the branch
    Pesto

    Is there anything else that you are using that you would recommend to a friend for the perfect gourmet pizza (excluding products that need refrigeration)?

    Let me know.

        I would love to do cheese, but we aren't ready to handle refrigerated items yet. Give me a little time. :-)

        If we could find a great supplier who would drop ship directly, that would be good.

        My research so far has yielded a domestic mozzarella company that charges more for shipping than the cheese, so-so domestic at Costco, a pretty good domestic at Trader Joe's and the occassional imported Mozzarella di Bufala at Joe's (which is good), and an imported Mozzarella at a cheese shop in Healdsburg, which is good, but pricey.

        Our daughers are funny. They roll their eyes when we buy domestic mozzarella, and keep reminding us that it isn't "real".

          Frankie,

          I see you are in NorCal, with what looks like a Scott oven. Where are you located? We're in Healdsburg.

              Why not make your own? It may not be "real" since you can't get the water buffalo milk, but it's extremely easy (takes about 30 minutes), TONS of fun (especially for kids), and darned GOOD!

              I can dig up a reference if you're interested.

                  Tell us more. Do you use your own pepperoni on your pizzas? Do you sell it over the Internet?

                  How good is it???

                    fresh mozzerella

                    Why not make your own? It may not be "real" since you can't get the water buffalo milk, but it's extremely easy (takes about 30 minutes), TONS of fun (especially for kids), and darned GOOD!
                    could you elaborate? a thread telling how to home make mozzeralla sounds like a good reference to me!

                      Cheesy subject...

                      I just did a bit of searching and it is really easy to make mozzarella. Use whatever kind of milk you like. I used to make chevre at home back inthe day we had milking goats... Great stuff.

                        Who will be the first to do it, and share their photos....? :-)

                        Did everyone see our photos of the small Mozzarella producer outside Naples. They made it look easy.

                          You got it.. this evening, I'll write up a detailed post relating the recipe I have followed on several occasions and a few resources to do it yourself.

                          It's really quite simple, you use milk, citric acid, and some mesophilic starter and in less than 30 minutes, you're pulling and kneading the hot cheese to get the mozzeralla texture you want. The rest is being patient enough for it to cool down and eat. We have a hard time with that step!

                          We've also taken the leftover whey and made pizza crust from it.

                          I have no pics, but that can be remedied the next time we make the cheese!
