Gentlemen, start your engines - 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.

  • Gentlemen, start your engines

    I'm feeling brave and ready to tackle the Wood-Fired Pizza e-Book (or probably just naive). This should be quite an adventure. Just think about the ground we get to cover. Flour, dough, pizza styles, toppings, technique, oven management, recipes. It should be fun.

    Send me you thoughts, recipes and lots of photos, and I will get started next week. I can't even guess how long it's going to take, but I'm sure we'll get there. Mary Karlin has already send me a couple of things, and I have Maver's excellent potato pizza.

    Also, take lots of photos and make your favorite pizzas the next time you fire your oven.

    Behind Wood-Fired Pizza, we are also going to do a Pizza Stone Pizza e-Book. Think about that as well.

    Here we go.

    Brave is right: why not write an e-book about religion or politics, where opinions are carefully thought out, and reasonably discussed?

    No, best of luck. I've been amazed here, by the lack of hair-pulling and CAPS_TYPING that happens on other sites.

      Just a thought, but will there be enough material to make a separate pizza stone book? My initial feeling is that it would made a good, solid section of the general pizza book. As always, I'd be glad to offer my two editorial cents on this one, too.

      Maybe we could convince the video literate out there (Nick ) to shoot some demo clips on forming and cooking to go with it. I'd just love to hear that mobster voice over again .

        Religion and politics pale when compared with pizza -- and who said reasonable has anything to do with it. :-)

        I greatly appreciate the lack of !!!_CAPS in our group. Those things take away the fun. Just an aside, my wife was reading a travel forum the other day, and someone posted saying they wanted to go to Cinque Terra for two days, and what should they see -- and someone yelled at them, saying if they were stupid enough to think they could see everything in two days, they shouldn't go at all. Ouch.

        Johnny L is a serious photographer, and we've been talking about doing some pizza stone specific things. He's up for it. We'll see if the content fills in a whole book -- but the pix are going to look great.
