Bread Proofing Baskets in OZ - 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.

  • Bread Proofing Baskets in OZ

    Just wondering if anyone knows of a supplier of proofing baskets for bread in OZ? Mainly after a few spiral bannetons but the only place I found is here Bannetons / Bread Proofing Baskets | Sourdough Companion and they are around 30 bucks a pop. Does anyone know any other places that they are available?

    forget about getting any cheap in aus and import them from:

    Baking Supplies|Baking Baskets and Supplies|Basket|Wicker Baskets |Plastic Baskets|Linen Liners|Proofing Boards|Wood Peel

    Your postage will be a as much as the baskets but half what you would pay here for the same or similar items.
    I got some from Can Corner but not exactly as I would hve liked.

    The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know

      I bought some reasonably priced, German made plastic baskets last week and used them with good results. They were around $24 I think.

      Got them here:

      Catering Equipment, Supplies &/or Service - Bake-Quip Pty Ltd in Osborne Park

      Not sure if they ship around Oz but worth checking - just send an email to Tom (address in the advert)
      / Rossco

          James, Have you tried Newcastle Kitchen & Cutley on Brunker Rd? If they don't have them in stock they will get them for you. They may not be any cheaper but you won't have to pay for postage.

            Thanks Paul. I gave them a call and they were very helpful as usual. They can get them but supplier is out of stock and 12-16week wait cause their supplier has to order them from france. So still looking

              I know this thread is little old but if anyone is still looking I thought it is worth mentioning that there is bunch of nice baskets from chines seller on ebay, I got 4 so far and they are great and very cheap, wasn't expecting much for such low price but once they got here I was surprised in a good way. feel little bad about not buying local but the prices are just too high
