      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 .

Tire storage

Recommended Posts

I am very curious to see how you folks store your winter tires and summer tires? I stored some very nice tires last fall and when it was time to swap em out I realized that they are now cracked. I had them stacked in a unheated garage. I think it is a big possibility that stacking them was a mistake

I now have my winter tires standing up and there is no contact with the tires besides the concrete floor. I really need to keep these tires healthy. They are for the wifes car so I really need them.

I also am having the same problem on my motorcycle tires. They were installed last summer and I have put on 7000 miles and I just noticed that there are now cracks between the treads. I did have it jacked up with the tires off the ground.

What am I doing wrong?

I don't have any experience storing tires for passenger cars but when we store tires for our race car we take the centers out of the valve stems and give them a quick shot of wd39 too keep them from drying out. Not sure if its relevant here but it seems to work ok.
