      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 .

Port Mod Questions

Recommended Posts

I was going to post this under the other port mod topic, but didn't want to hijack someones thread, so here goes.

When you run lights in your portable, do you generally run them off of your flasher battery or do you run a second battery?

Also, how much light can I expect to get out of two rope lights (6ft). I was thinking of running one one each side of my one man and depending on if I got a second battery, I would then run wires through the tubes to the front or back.

I guess my questions would be:

-Can you run off of your flasher and still have good battery life

-Is there enough light from these things to not need a headlamp or lantern?

Any advice on this would be appreciated,

Thanks!

I usually run my lights off of a seperate battery. I made a splitter connection so if one battery runs low I can run both the lights and the flasher off of 1 battery.

I wouldn't run your power wires through the poles. With all of the expanding and conrtacting your just asking for something to bind up in there. I just zip stripped my wires to the outside of the poles and it works great

As far as how much light you can get off of 2 ropes it's all up to the light. I had 2 of the old clam rope lights and it was not enough. I got 2 new light strips last year that were almost too bright. Check some old posts on the BEst H ong K ong lights. They are very bright. With these you do not need a headlamp or lantern.
