      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 .

Riding???

Recommended Posts

I picked up my new sportsman 800 on Thursday, installed all my accessories today and I don't think I can weight until next weekend to ride. Is there anywhere close to the east metro to ride. I just want to get out and get some break in time on the engine. Thanks

St. Croix trails out near Hinckley would be your best bet. We have been conidering heading over there tomorrow.

Otherwise buy a WI trail pass for $38.50 and there are lots more options.

Thanks, I was looking at those 2 options. not sure where to get a wisconsin pass. I was also looking at a place down by Fairbault. That would only be about a 45 minute drive for me.

Tri County would be the place near Faribault. It's ok if you're just looking to put some time on the machine. But the pit is more tailored to the sport group. Some guys like it, some get bored with it after a couple hours.

There is an expansion that opened up to the north east of the original pit with a trail connecting the 2. The last time I was there, there was a couple mudholes and some smaller hills if you want to put the 4x4 system through the paces.

The trails wouldn't be open 24 hours, but it is open year round. I the pit closes around sunset. I'll double check and post back. No permit needed.

Tri County is not the place to be riding at night anyhow. There's some steep drop-offs that could put a guy into a world of hurt.

I checked the DNR site and there are no operating hours listed. I think there are signs at the parking area.
