      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 .

vexilar battery

How long will a vexilar battery last for before having to be recharged? Does it matter how cold it is? also how long do i charge it compared to how many hours I use it for? thanks

On a fresh battery, I can get 2 days fishing before it [PoorWordUsage]s out.

The colder the battery, the less efficient the chemical reaction that produces electricity, so the shorter the life on the charge. I built my own holder out of wood so the unit and battery sit a couple inches off the cooooold ice.

I know when mine is charged in two ways: I've got the SLT, which has a series of lights on the unit marking how full the charge is, and my plug-in charger from Vexilar has a little red light that's off while it's charging but goes on when it's fully charged.

I don't know any formula for how long to charge a battery based on how long you've used it.

The charger that came with my vex battery has red light that comes on when it is fully charged. They say that you should charge it everytime you use it for best battery life. Not sure if I believe that but am going to try it with this new battery. I agree that you should be able to get about 2 days of fishing with a good battery that is fully charged
