      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 .

Recommended Posts

Minnkota with composite shaft?? Mine is a Powerdrive. I just use a little WD-40 and it seems fine. I can't seem to remember, but there numerous things others tried that also helped.

Armor All works for me as well. Spray a little on the motor cradle to help it slide out easier. I put some on the shaft also which lets the collar slide up and down freely.

If it is a minn kota terrova you have to turn the motor unit so the prop is facing the other direction when stowing or deploying is very hard.

That happened to me. Just got the new prop from reeds yesterday. You have to really slam the terrova up tp make sure it locks in. I had brought it up and it clicked. Just not as much click as slamming it up there.

If yours is a terrova, is it sliding hard or are you having trouble releasing the lever? It took me a couple of times to discover you have to push the lever in first then down.

When you say the other direction, do you mean prop would be on the outside of the boat or inside?
