      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 .

Furnance for fish house

Recommended Posts

I was looking at Menards at direct vent furnance. Does anyone have a housewarmer 18,000 btu unit. Just wanted to know if it was any good or should I go with a 15,000 btu Empire for $100.00 more? My house is a 6'1/2 x 14'.

I'm going to guess they are pretty similar. If it's direct vent I would go with the 18,000 for less the $100. They all have a warrenty and Menard's will stand behind it.

have not taken a close look at them, but I would go with the direct vent. From what I recall, the direct vent take a dual pipe, or two in one. The inner pipe is the exhaust and the outer pulls in outside air into the heater, so it does not take from inside the house.

not framiliar with the first one....But I own 2 empires in my two house's and they are tough to beat. Have never given me a problem. They are a quality piece, and they use pretty standard parts. Im in the hvac trade & parts for them would be easy to comeby. The one Ive got is 15years old, and still going strong, in good shape as well...IMO Empire is worth the extra dough,,,installed correctly it will give you years of trouble free use.
