Vermiculite Slabs - 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.

  • Vermiculite Slabs

    Hi,New Here and I posted this before and probably in the wrong place. I apologize... I have several solid Vermiculite slabs and would like to use them as the hearth insulation under the firebrick, rather than the vermiculite/cement mixture. They are 1 inch thick and I have enough to cover the entire floor under the oven in 2 layers, If anyone has any thoughts or Ideas ? as to if this would be a good idea, I would appreciate your comments/suggestions.

    Thanks for your help

    Vermiculite board is an old technology, but it works fine. I use a piece as a soldering pad, and you can put a torch on one end and hold the other with your fingers. It's just vermiculite and binder, so you should probably plan on using the same four inches that we recommend for vermiculite concrete.

    Also, as an obsolete product, it may not be certified asbestos free. Use extra caution when cutting and handling (a proper respirator instead of a paper dust mask)

      The plans call for an equivalent of four inches of vermiculite insulation under the floor. I would add more vermicrete or ceramic board to make up the difference.
      Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.
