      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

painting a bathroom

Recommended Posts

My wife painted our bathroom a week ago. It looks GREAT but is still tacky and sticky in spots --

What gives?

What can we do?

Multiple Questions, so bear with me...

What kind of paint was used?

Did you prime?

What kind of airflow do you have in the bathroom?

Do you use the vent fan when showering?

Are you, were you, or were the previos homeowners smokers?

I painted houses for many years and Neighbor is on the right path. The type of paint may be an issue. There are some oil based products that don't dry well. I've seen one that took over one week to fully dry. That was an enamel that the homeowner insisted on using for some windows. Which product did you use?

In my opinion, the most likely situation is that there is something on the walls preventing the paint from drying. Likely culprits are grease, haircare products, or old glue from wallpaper that re-wets from latex paint. Whenever I painted bathrooms or kitchens, I always used a good oil based primer before applying latex. Try to think back to determine if something was on the walls.

If you purchased the paint from Sherwin Willimas, Hirschfield's, or Iowa Paint you can usually ask a rep to come to the home and take a look. If it were me, I'd increase airflow to dry, then prep it again, apply oil primer and re-roll with another product. Good luck.

I used Valspar paint from Lowe's. Its a water based latex. I did put a primer over the existing paint first. Our house is only about 4 1/2 years old so no smokers in it - just us. We have a central fan system (not the technical term but its a good fan).

When painting I had the windows open and there was a good air flow going through the house. It wasn't a humid day either.

I'm wondering if its because I didn't let the first coat dry thoroughly perhaps. Most of the walls are dry just have some random tacky spots.

Man, I would HATE to have to do it all over again!

Thanks for your thoughts (hitman's wife)

If the paint was mixed toughly I wouldn't worry too much about it. A second coat on before the paint dries could be part of the problem or at least a contributing factor to one of the above suggestions. Was the primer latex too and did you let it dry before the coat of paint.
