      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 .

Going to my first race!

Recommended Posts

Me and a buddy are heading to the Brickyard this Thursday. We should be sitting on the end of pit road facing the track. I bought a scanner to listen to the drivers and am just starting to try and figure out how to use it. Where does everyone get their frequencies for listening? And any other tips for a race appreciated...

We've always rented the scanners - they come preset. Have fun! I am a bit jealous!

Make sure you read the info the track sends out with the tickets on size allowances on bags, what is allowed in, etc. I have seen some very nice things just get left at the gate because the people didn't read their booklets. You should be able to find that stuff on the track's HSOforum as well.

Scanners are nice, the headset makes it wirth while. Make sure you have a good head set. If you are going with someone you can get a splitter so you both can listen. You can get the frequencies at the track from one of the venders that sells or rents the electronics. I haven't been to a race in about 7 years but friends that have used my scanner say that most of teams still run the same frequenies. Get to the track early and maybe do some tailgating or visit the suvonior trailers. Also check and see what if, anything that you can carry in.

I believe jayski still has free scanner sheets on his site. Otherwise do a search and you'll find them or as stated the scanner rental places will sell you a list for a few bucks at the track.

Cootz, going over on Fri. to ORP for the truck and bush (I know old school) races and probably Brickyard qualifying. If you have time ORP is a 1/2 mile old school track that puts on some great night races. ttg

It was IRP it is now ORP (O’REILLY RACEWAY PARK). They have a site with a map but it’s not far from the 500 track.
