      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 .

Problems with FM forums since I updated to IE8...

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else updated to IE8 and now FM is really slow to respond? I also get delays when typing messages often, like it will just stop and then catch up with 10-15 letters all at once.

Also, if I type a message longer than the little box here, it will start to flicker and I can't see the bottom line of what I am typing. Worked great up until my "update". I haven't tried Firefox again yet, I just kinda like IE, I am not sure why, as MS is not my fav usually....

Any thoughts or maybe the admin might check with UBB if more than just are seeing this...

I always use Firefox but just checked to see was version of IE we were running and it was IE8 beta and it seemed to work just fine and the amount of delay when loading up was no different then Firefox. We are running 1.5Mb DSL if that makes any difference.

Can't stand any IE version, using Firefox and it works great. I have noticed that the forums have been a little slow loading lately, but I attributed that to being on satellite.

Yep same problem with the flicker and the typing goes back to the top, especially after entering an image. I use Firefox/IE8 50/50. I also use IE7 and Firefox with no problems on this site. I kind of think there is something in the code on this site that IE8 is not happy about. Which version of Windows? I am using XP.

I am glad it is not just me wink but stinks that it is happening to others as well. I am using XP Home on this computer.

I agree that there must be some UBB code that is not kosher with the new IE8. I would guess that UBB must know about this and probably working or has a fix, but if not affecting the majority of people, might not be worth the risk to update yet.

Part of my job is testing software, so I run a pretty stock computer on t his one, to try to have it as close to what an "average user" would have. That is part the reason why I think I "like" IE, that I know that you need to have web based games, etc. run on IE as that is what the majority of users will be using.

There are some websites that don't seem to be quite right with IE8, including this one, for me too.

In the IE8 "tools" menu there is a "compatibility view" setting that I have selected for these websites. Works much better then.

Yep, I use the compatibility setting as well for this site when I use IE8. I frequent other UBB forums that don't have the same issue as here but likely they are running different versions of the software.

I run two websites that are commercial sales sites and all of my web stats show that 85% of viewers of my sites use IE and of those about 55% use IE8. So while its great to pitch another browser (and I do use them) it would seem a large percentage of folks still use IE. I asked about this issue a few months back but as more folks switch to IE8 its possible more users may experience problems with this UBB version and IE8.

I think this thread is just a heads up that there likely is an issue specific to IE8 even if many users may not have a problem.

Hey Dan, that is sort of what I was thinking. Usually if "I" see an issue, it will most likely crop up on thousands of other systems for sure.

I will try the compat setting, thanks guys for the heads up on it.

Got the issue fixed. I ran Service Pack two for Vista on my machine. Rebooted and then went back into windows updates. There was an update for IE8. Ran that and it's working fine now.

Whoops, I have XP as well, was thinking there was new update for IE8, but just found that there is not. I have all latest. I guess just compat mode for me for now.

I get around the "flicker" by expanding the text box by clicking the "down" arrow in the upper right hand corner of the "tool bar" for the text box. It is a pain, but it works. crazy

Sometimes an "update" to your system is a pain in the wazzoo.

    • Still have the cushions and bench seat to figure out, other than that the only thing I am waiting on is the termination cap for the furnace and I should be ready for ice plus a few rattle reels and rod holders.  Just in time as well, looks like the weather is going to be favorable over the next few weeks for us that like ice.  This is only a day house and will stay at my cottage, the bunk didn’t turn out as big as I would have hoped but my 11,8,5 year old's thoroughly think I am wrong, they love it.  I think for lights I am just going to buy some battery powered solar pucks to see how they work.  Being that I used house windows, I was worried about the nailing flange icing up so I cut some 4" angle and welded in some "V's" so the snow doesn't slide down and accumulate on top of the windows I will need to do the same for the termination cap.   Any input is appreciated.
    • Seasoning is not that big of an issue, just make your own rubs. The internet is full of recipes. It is a bit of work to smoke a pork butt or brisket depending on the smoker you have but with the right equipment it's not so much work as it is the time to prepare.  If you are one of those who are always in a hurry then you may want to just stick with steaks, burgers and hot dogs on the gas grill but if you have some time and want some gourmet food once in a while nothing beats good ole' southern BBQ, for me. The fact that we live in this predominantly Scandinavian region where ribs are usually baked, boiled or put in a crock pot and ketchup is too spicy is all the more reason it is imperative that I be at least semi-competent at BBQing. It is almost impossible to get good,  authentic, southern BBQ around here. You can however get a good steak just about everywhere you turn.
    • Looks like salt, pepper, maybe cayenne and garlic.   30 minute marinade isn't doing much.      Good pork doesn't need much more than salt and pepper and maybe a little sugar.  
    • Shot a 10 point with the slick trick raptor trick last week and was really happy with the results. Shot him at 2 yards so I waited for a quartering away shot to open up more of the vitals. Broadhead took a rib and a chunk of a vertebra going in 2 ribs,sternum and part of the leg going out. Slightly bent a blade otherwise no damage to the head. Only thing I didnt like was the entry hole in the hide was only 3/4" wide and that is because of the front deployment design. Once it was through the hide it opened to the full 2" cut. Blood trail at impact was 2 feet wide and he only went 25 yards.  I have taken 3 deer and a turkey this year with different heads. A whitetail doe and turkey with 3 blade rage chisel tip,both broadheads were broke after the shot. A mule deer doe with a griztrick 2,30 yard shot pass through. Great blood trail head was perfect and still sharp. And the buck with the raptor trick. 
    • Still on a roll from my 2016 season. 
    • Outlier. I will confess though that at least with brisket it is beef so by nature it won't need as much as pork in terms of seasoning.  
    • Texas style.  Salt and black pepper.   Put it in the smoker.  wrap it.    
    • @Big Dave2 Yeah, I have a couple acres in the woods with deeded water front access.  Had it for about 10 years now.  This camper has been stationary on it for about 6 of those years.
    • It can be but not without a quite a bit of work and seasoning which adds to the cost. I don't see too many people cooking brisket , pulled pork etc without adding a whole bunch of stuff to make it taste decent.
