      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 .

tires for explorer

Recommended Posts

I am in the market for 235/75/15 for my Explorer. When I was doing some researh I came across a message that '98 Ford Explorer requires a special tire. I also was told this at FF. They said Ford requires an all terrain tire. Highway tire not recommended. Is this the special tire for this vehicle? Also, is speed rating for the tire important to look at when purchasing? Most I have seen are S or T rating.

I currently have destinations and I am considering a change to a different tire. Some that I have considered are duelers, long trails, continentals, general grabbers. I know about duelers, but would anyone have opinions on the others? I am looking for a quiet tire on the highway, good traction mud/snow.

I had a 98 Explorer and used the Goodyear Wranglers and never had a problem. Seemed like a good tire.

If you are planning on putting more then 40-50000 miles on it I would go with Michelins. LTX M&S or LTX AT if they still make them. I had a set with 80,000 on them with plenty of tread left.
