      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 .

Battery charge time?

Recommended Posts

I just got an olympus stylus 790 SW and have been looking at the instructions and they say it takes 5 hours to charge the battery (it is a LI-42B battery and the charger is a LI-40C). This seems kinda long and I was wondering if anyone else has this camera and how long does it take to fully charge it? Maybe the five hours is for the very first charge it takes?

Thanks for the help in advance!

I would have to believe that is just for the first time but even that seems a little long. My Canon only takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes at the most depending on how run down they are.

drewski, I have a Sony Optio 30 camera that takes the same battery. I have 2 chargers, one that the battery goes into and then the charger goes into the wall outlet and the other is a charger that has a detachable cord. The first one charges VERY slowly, though I haven't timed the charge, I'd guess it's around 4.5-5 hours. The second charger can get the job done in about ~2 hours. The only complaint I had about the camera was that the battery seemed to draw down even while the camera wasn't being used. I charged 2 batteries on the same charger, put 1 in the camera and the other in the storage case. About 10 days later I turned the camera on only to get the message 'Battery depleated', I switched batteries, turned it on again and got the same message! Next step is to call the battery mfgr to find out if it's a problem inherent to Lithium-Ion batteries. Phred52
