      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Securing dock sections to frame

Recommended Posts

Sy    0

I am hoping someone here can help me out with a problem! We have a dock at our cabin that has aluminum decking panels that lay on top of the dock frame. The panels are fairly light and they tend to blow off and into the water with not a lot of wind.

The previous owner had drilled holes and screwed in a bracket type of thing but they were not real effective and they took a long time to install each year. We would have to put in 4 per panel piece x 30 panel pieces and it was a pain.

I keeping thinking something like a large binder clip that would just snap on but I can't find anything big enough. The panels plus frame are about 2 inches thick.

Does anyone have an easy and quick suggestion to keep those from flying off?

One thing to keep in mind is that having the panels come off in big waves can save your dock. If your dock is low to the water, it is a safety feature to have the panels pop off in waves you the waves don't tweak and twist the dock. My dock has plastic panels so the wind does not blow them off but I have had waves nock them off before.
