Pizza Progression - 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.

    Hi Peter and crew:

    I just wanted to share our labor of love for 2010. I've spent 40+ years teaching myself how to cook just about everything (My mother's English palette was . . . . well, you probably get the picture!). But the past few years I've been fascinated by artisan breads, authentic pizza and ovens which enhance and add that rustic touch to the culinary experience. Of course I've acquired several of Peter's books along the way in addition to a few other celebrated authors who dabble in bread and pizza making. I have attempted to produce those exceptional results on my hearthstone set on the oven convection feature at full heat as well as attempting to place my hearthstone on our infrared grill set at the highest temperature, but it doesn't quite yield the same results.

    This year my husband and I decided to embark on a backyard adventure of our own and decided to use Kiko Denzer as our guide/ mentor (via his book "Build Your Own Earth Oven"). We didn't completely follow his path as he seems to appreciate using nature's wonders, radically reducing cost involved. The primary reason was because I didn't want an eyesore in the back corner of our yard. Our baby is 90% complete as we'll complete any cosmetic touches and add new life to the surrounding yard we destroyed next spring as it warms up. I wanted to share some of the passion you have helped inspire during your journey!

    Welcome to Facebook

    A true fan of yours . . . . .

    VERY NICE ! Great design, very rustic. I noticed some exterior dome cracking, are you noticing much heat loss?

        No, not at all. The cracks in the dome are typical of ovens made from clay (from our backyard). We'll do some basic touch-ups and cosmetic accents next Spring as it warms up.

          Thank you John . . . we've had a blast creating and building our own design. Have only started to really use it since it was completed so late in the year here (in Idaho), but can tell you the results are phenomenal. In addition to pizza, we've baked bread, roasted a chicken, potatoes and made corned beef so far. Can't beat the results!

            Thanks for getting in touch! This is great. Post a few pictures in my Gallery Thread! I can't wait to do one of these some day.
