Question on Portland cement - 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.

  • Question on Portland cement

    I'm ready to pour my insulating concrete and I have portland cement mixed with sand. Is this ok to mix with vermiculite or should I use the portland cement without the sand mixed in? If I use the sand mix, does this change the ratio of cement to vermiculite?

    Thanks for the advice!

    Hi gsuter,

    Just mix dry Portland with vermiculite. No sand, no lime, no nothing. Then add water and mix until it is wet enough the shovel into the form. Five parts vermiculite to one part Portland by volume.

    Put the vermiculite into the mixing tub then the dry Portland on top and mix it up good while dry. After all the particles of vermiculite are coated with Portland then add water.

      Thanks for the reply. I'll skip the portland with the sand and go straight portland with vermiculite. The link to the pictures really helped as well. This if my first oven, but it seems there should have been more than one bud light!

      I'll start posting my pics this weekend.

      Thanks, Gary
