      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 .

Ceiling Transition

Recommended Posts

Hi-

I am in the process of putting in a ceiling with Armstrong 12x12 tiles and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on tranistioning that to another room with tiles of a much different pattern. The gap I will need to cover should be less than four inches and was thinking of just tacking in a stained narrow strip of wood. Any other thoughts? If it helps, I am attaching the tiles with furring strips so I do have something to attach the transistion to.

Thanks!!!

I'm not sure exactly the way your rooms are laid out or the style of house but you could consider using some wood and building a beam to cover the transition area. Then stain it to watch whatever wood work is already there. It might make it look like its part of the architecture of the house. It might depend on location of the beam and style of the house if it will look good and blend in but its another step up from just using a strip of wood.

You could simply build the beam by building a 3 sided box 4"x4"x4"x whatever the lenght is.

Just a thought anyways.

Go to a sheetmetal fabricator and have them bend you an angle the same size you need to cover. They can use a paint lock, or have them bend up a white. We do it all the time on commercial ceilings, and you don't notice it at all.

The wood will accent the change IMHO.

Two ways of going about it. Try to blend or celebrate it.

A picture of the entire area and a close up would help here. You said two rooms. Is this a door way or opening? Same ceiling height?

Depending on what condition the other ceiling is in you could do both. Or sheetrock both.

The room transitions from one to the other via a small hallway that already has ceiling tile as well. It is also at the same height. I like the previous ideas about creating a box. I'll give it a shot and see how it turns out.

Thanks!
