      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 .

Family Riders out there??

Recommended Posts

Wondering if their are alot of "families" that do some wheelin. I seem to be blessed having 2 girls and a wife who enjoy the outdoors! grin I would really like to buy another one but can't stand being in debt. However as they grow and grow, can ya still put "life" on hold because of an 85$ payment?

Should I pull the trigger and just do it? I'm looking to buy something about 2 years old, even 2wd might work. Currently have an 07 sporty.

A person has to live a little today, for there may be no tomorrow!!!!!! I have missed opportunities with family and close friends for the sake of money/time. Now they are gone and so is the opportunity.

I will not let that happen again!

I am blessed as well with an 8yr old boy and a 9yr. old girl. They are growing up way too fast. It won't be long and they will be gone living their own lives. I will take every opportunity that is givin' me to spend time with them without regret.

Do what you can comfortably afford. If it is something that you all enjoy, DO IT! Someday you will be paid back in other ways.

I agree, debt is not a good thing. There are things not worth going into debt for and there are things worth being in debt for. You have to make that decision.

Good luck. Hope to see you and your family on the trails.

Maybe she will find a good hardworkin outdoorsy man like her father!!! At least that's what I'm shoooting for, although there seems to be fewer and fewer of them.

we had the same thing happen to us,, I enjoy the woods, as does our 12 year old daughter, and we used to cram outselves all on hubby's quad,, but it was uncomfortable for us all, hubby said he was going to get a new one for me,, but I kept saying "noooooo" due to the debt.. soon though he had a new one sitting in the yard for me,, and we haven't regretted it since!! now it's wayyyy more fun!!!
