    I've been obsessed with creating an advanced online recipe database with a calculator.

    So far I have done:

    • User registration
    • Create recipe (and create based on another)
    • Save recipe
    • Rate recipe
    • Toplists
    • Lists
    • See my recipes
    • Add/remove favorites
    • See favorites
    • Sorting
    • Comment on recipe
    • Localization (danish/english)
    • Google translate option on notes and comments (when you use English, a "Translate" link appears below notes and comments).
    • Save user default values for recipes

    A few things are missing yet. What I can think of:


    • Free text search
    • "I have these flavors"-type search
    • Paging
    • Users can have the same display name
    • Forgot password
    • Remember login

    Apart from this, everything should work. Have a go at it!

    Comments, ideas, etc here or by using the "Feedback" on "My page" on the site.

    *********************

    I'm wondering what it will take for people to start using it? It's free, easy, fast - It should be a great way to share recipes. Plus I listen to every suggestion! :)

    Thanks :) I'm pretty excited about it myself - I hope that people will use it :)
    I wish I had a bunch of great recipes to put in ;)

    Very, very cool. An online slice of vaping folklore.

    Two suggestions:

    1) If anybody wanted to try mixing something they saw, knowing the manufacturer of, for instance, Mellow Sunset would be helpful.

    2) Translations of comments left in a foreign (to me) tongue would help also. I have no idea what language is use with Nikotinvæsken er "traditional" fra FA, let alone what was said.

    PoliticallyIncorret, Yes, that's kind of the problem with the flavors - One needs to either include it in the name, or write it in the notes or comments.

    The site is either in Danish or English though, so google translate should get it. translate url...

    Mellow Sunset and the others are from FlavourArt I think (that's the "FA" part of the note)...

    PoliticallyIncorrect - I've implemented google translate on the notes and the comments, if you've on the English UI :) It's machine translation, so it's usually more fun than correct - but it's better than nothing ;)

    I tried it & have it bookmarked. The total drops function when using more or less than 10ml goal doesn't function properly, but a great idea. Thanks for posting.

    @banjo - Can you elaborate? What goes wrong when you input what? The numbers I input looks about right, when I try...

    Just tried it again and it seems fine now. The first time I tried, the total drops read something like: 610.100410001 - a really weird number

    I guessed that was the case, so I just rounded the percentage, that fixed it :) Thanks for pointing me in the general direction :D
    The site is gonna rock :D

    Now you can check "Set these base values as default" to have your preferences set on save. All the base values will be pre-filled in future recipes :)

    Cool Idea, but I think there might be a problem with the basic math percentages,

    If I want to make an 80VG 20PG mix using 100%VG Nic juice 100mg/ml strength at 25mg finished nic level with 10% Flavoring I should be using this:

    25% Nic
    55% VG Dilutent
    10% PG Dilutent
    10% PG Flavouring

    But the Calc says to use this:
    25% VG Nic
    18% PG Dilutent
    47% VG Dilutent
    10% Flavoring

    I thing my math is right, but if not someone can set me straight.

    Thanks
    Jeff~

    You're probably right. But the calculator gives the correct percentages, according to one assumption. The flavoring is neither counted as PG nor VG - It counts just like water/vodka/pga.

    Would it be most correct to let the flavor count as PG, are most flavors diluted with that?

    Oh I see, I believe it should be counted as PG, as that is more or less the accepted practice.

    Thanks,

    Ok, thanks Jeff! If it is indeed the accepted norm, I will of course change it to PG!

    There are some flavors that are suspended in VG as well, so an option of either would be the best course of action. but I believe PG Flavoring is the most prevalent, of course their may be others with an opinion ;)

    I thought of the option, but then you should have the option for each flavor... Maybe I should just add a PG/VG radio button that goes for all flavors in that recipe, or do the "PG contents of flavor"/"VG contents of flavor" here as I did with nic juice...
