spongy insulating layer - 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.

  • spongy insulating layer

    Hi All,
    I poured my insulating layer of vermiculite and Portland cement about four days ago. It feels a little spongy on the edges...Is this normal?

    I think that is proabbly normal. I noticed the edges were a bit fragile on mine as well. The brick floor will displace the weight evenly over the entire insulating layer...should be real sturdy. Of course, that is assuming you used the correct vermiculite/cement ratio.

      This is normal, it takes a week to harden to the cork-like consistency, and it still will be crumbly around the edges.

        Yep, normal.

        Everyone reports it as looking "spongy" but it will support a surprising load.
