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.

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

    Can anyone refresh my memory on the correct ratio of portland cement and vermiculite?

    Re: insulating layer

    Hi,

    If this is for the insulation base it is 1 part cement to 5 parts vermiculite with just enough water to form a slurry.

    Best to mix it in a wheelbarrow by hand with a small shovel or garden hoe. Mixing it a cement mixer will break down the vermiculite.

      Be careful, my understanding of a slurry is a mixture that is fluid enough to almost pour. This would be quite unsuitable for a vermicrete mix. In fact if you add enough water that it pools on the bottom of your barrow, then you've added too much. It tends to wash the cement off the grains of vermiculite. I use 10 parts vermiculite, 2 parts cement and 3 parts water by volume.

      There maybe many interpretations of the word "slurry". A slurry in Australia may be different from a slurry in Arizona.
