      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 .

FL-18 Modifications

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of adding a power switch to the FL-18 so I don't have to mess with plugging in the battery or have the battery indicator light on all the time. Anybody else done this?

I have been thinking about putting some sort of switch on mine since I got it (just haven't gotten around to it!). I was thinking of maybe a 3-position switch. One position would be "off" (which would be like leaving the positive wire disconnected from the battery), another position would be "on" (pretty much self-explanatory) and the third position would be "charge" (this would divert the positive lead from the battery to some sort of quick-release connector). I suppose only a 2-position switch would be needed if the quick-release connector had terminals that were pretty well protected. I just wouldn't want the possibility of anything touching these terminals and shorting out the battery during storage so thought the 3-position option would be "safer".

Well I put the switch in last night at work and it turned out great. I will take a picture and post it in about 2 weeks. I put in a On/Off switch with a lock between the two positions so you have to pull out on the switch a little and then move it, so it doesn't accidently get tripped on. I mounted it right above the battery indicator and covered the back of the switch with heat shrink and potted it. So I do not see anymore mods for the fl-18. The switch and the foam under the batt were it. I also used heat shring to attach the reel to my new rod and it worked good also. It is a Genz rod and I used 1.5" clear heat shrink.
