      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 .

Coolers

Recommended Posts

the best one I've found is the coleman extreme!! I'm on my second one and love them. it helps to keep them in the shade and you will naturally go through more ice on 90 degree days vs 60 degree days. good luck, I got my new "vikings" extreme cooler for x-mas!!

The interior volume on the extreme is smaller than another cooler of the same outside dimensions because of the extra insulation. Also the top recesses in so you can't fill it to the rim.

Ice lasts longer tho just be aware of the size issue.

We use a cheaper large igloo for camping food and it works well. All the meat we bring we put in frozen and have large "ice pucks" to fill in the gaps made from water-filled cool whip bowls. That will last 2.5 to 3 days before we have to add ice. What helps also is to have a separate cooler for drinks and other items you access often. That way you're not opening the food (meal) cooler so often.

I like the Extreme. We keep beverages in one with cubes and a couple frozen milk jugs. The jugs were still mostly frozen after four days this past weekend. Keep them out of the sun and wrap with a heavy blanket or canvas tarp for best efficiency.

I have an Extreme.. Love it. We keep the beverages in it. As deerminator stated above, have a separate cooler for food & misc.

Tip..Don't dump the melted ice water out unless you have to. You'll go through less ice keeping the water cold than you will trying to keep the air cold.
