Building in Texas - 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.

  • Building in Texas

    Well I might as well get the ball rolling here. I am planning on building my oven in The Woodlands Tx. Would love to be able to touch base with anyone in the area to discuss how to build, look at an ongoing or completed build and or get a little encouragement before I start my build!

              There are a number of variations you could do for this tool. What I did was to purchase a small lazy susan from home depot and secured it to the protective luan plywood on the floor. I then took a 2 x 2 stick and attached it to the lazy susan with a small hinge. The stick was cut to the proper length and at the other end of the stick I just screwed on a small right angle bracket.
              The advantage of this is it is easy quick and cheap. The disadvantage is if you take as long as I am taking to do my build this tool will not last, the lazy susan will start to seize up.
              If you understand the principle of what this tool is used for there are an infinite number of ways to approach this.

                  Hello! We are just out side of Waco. We just scored a load of firebrick for a $1 a brick. We were able to get 200 standard size and 80 tiles to use on the floor. Can't wait to start cutting and laying everything out.

                    I am located in Woodforest, North of the Woodlands. I am in the final stages of completing a FB Premio 40" precast installation. The flagstone facia will be installed as soon as it quits raining. I have had two curing fires to date. I am interested in networking with Houston area wood fired ovens owners and possibly doing some cooking and baking together.

                    Good luck with your build. This is my second oven, so if I can help you with your build don't hesitate to contact me.

                      That was four years ago, so I am sure he is finished. You might check out pizzamaking dot com for some Houston area WFO people, as you might guess there are a lot.
