Finally figured out that mystery ingredient! - 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.

    Yeah, splat, you discovered my secret. Adds a complex aroma like wet, wild mushrooms - a combination of Old Man's Beard, Angel of Death, Dead Man's Fingers, and Black Trumpets.

      Apparently it's pizza talk day in the media. This one makes me a little sad. Some rightness with an equal amount of wrongness:
      Homemade Pizza That Is the Opposite of Fast Food - NYTimes.com

      I'm sorry, but anyone who claims they can turn out a true Naples-style pizza/crust from a regular home oven-even at self-clean temps- is smoking it, and not in the WFO way. I've proved it to myself with back to back tests using the exact same dough and ingredients. Can indoor oven pizza be pretty good? Yes. Is it even close to being as good or the same as what comes out of a well-run WFO? NO!
      I mean, I'm glad anytime anyone is talkin' pizza, but if he hasn't done pizza in a WFO, I don't think he's qualified to make the comparison, you know?
      I'd love to have Mr. Strand over for a little back to back WFO/indoor oven action to set him straight

        I read that one to... you summarized my feelings well - even better than I did! So...should we kidnap him and send him on the underground pizza railroad?

          YES, lets! The underground pizza railroad...maybe we really need to make one of those!
          Too bad no one asked us, huh?

          I'm also annoyed by the "metal releases easier than wood" statement. REALLY?? Because that is exactly the opposite of my experience.
          Gosh I'm a snob.

              Hi Splatg!

              I missed the release comment. And I agree though it may be that he uses PAM on his metal peel.....And that should work....

              How about the Underground Pizza Railroad Tour (visiting world class home ovens around the world - and other great places). Whatayathink?

                It would be fun to have a database of owner-built WFO's and people who are open to hosting other WFO enthusiasts. The bread club that I am vaguely a member of around here maintains a list of local ovens but doesn't ever seem to do anything with the info...
