      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 .

solar power chargers

Question

Anybody using solar power battery chargers in their fish houses. I think that it would be handy not to have to haul them out to recarge them so often. Are there affordable panels out there that will work in the cold? Love to hear what people are doing. I tried it last year but the panel I had couldnt keep up

did you run any lights during the day?? I haven't had a chance to try mine yet. I'm putting the camper out on the 11th. I have 1.3 volt solar panel just to keep the battery topped off. I'm planning a couple overnighters but that's it. I have 3 12 volt lights that I'll be running.

No I only run lights at night-unfortunately I have to work during daylight hours...does your charger keep your batteries charged or do youstill end up having to take them in periodically? I can run two 40 watt bulbs for a couple of weeks and then the battery gives it up and I have to drap the darn thing in. Lookng for a way to avoid that especially since ice is pretty thin in my area- 9". And incidentally, several knuckle heads driving full size vehicles on the ice. Sure hope they dont go thru as I wont be very excited about helping them. Nature trying to weed out the stupid perhaps... confused.gif
