      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 .

hot tip for cold hands

Recommended Posts

When fishing in cold weather. Take a ice cream bucket, start your engine and let it heat up. Place the bucket under the spray outlet. Fill it up. Place hands in bucket to warm them up. Dry with towel. Now you got warm hands!!!!!!

Not sure I'd want to do that. Water shouldn't be coming through there that warm, plus it may have a scent of exhaust/gas on it if you're running a 2 stroke. Now you've got wet hands that smell like gas, that are a bit warmer than when you started.

I'll opt for a pair of gloves. But, to each their own.

Gloves can be wet. Even your extra pairs. When your hands are really cold with no motor or ice cream bucket pe-e in a pop can. It is heaven. You will get about 5 min. of warmth. If you have no pop can you can still warm your hands up. I would go for the gloves too. Sometimes things go bad. At that point scent does not matter. Great tip before the motor freezes up.

Neat idea. Of course be careful to not fall in - cold day - numb hands. On some boats this would be easy to do and others i t would not be so easy.
