      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 .

Another Droid issue--this time with Gmail

Recommended Posts

So I couldn't remember my Gmail password (because it isn't my primary email) so I went online and requested to change it. They sent the link out and I clicked it in my main email and it brought up a form to change the password. So far so good.

Now I went to the Gmail app on the android Hero and it wants to sync but says there is a problem. Ok...I press the button and it brings up one of those random word geneators. I key in the word, press done and it says it is not correct. This goes on for literally 30 attempts. I start thinking that my reading, typing skills are not that bad....and tried a few more times, with no success.

I tried to find a place to change the password for the account but cant find that. I tried to remove Gmail from the phone, but wont give an option to uninstall.

Is there a specific way to type in the secret word or what? What are the options here?

The only way to clear the gmail account is to do a wipe of the phone. Your account is entered when you set-up the phone for the very first time and there is no changing it unless you wipe the phone and start over just like you took it out of the box.

You might want to try changing the password of your gmail account using your PC again and then retry. Or, remember that usually when you key in text the first letter is automatically capitalized and this could throw it off from accepting your password or that "secret" word.

I'll try to find the old password in the phone box as a first resort.

Probably going to stop down at a sprint store tomorrow to see what they say about upgrading the OS to the latest version. Maybe they will volunteer to do it for me.

Then I can spend the weekend reinstalling everything.

just cant figure out why it doesn't recognize the secret word.

I did a google search and found this.

1.) Web interface: Changed the GMAIL pword.

2.) On the Droid: Launched the GMAIL app -wouldn't sync. Good.

3.) Searched thru the GMAIL app to reset to my new pword. No luck.

4.) Noticed a new notification, swiped it down, viola! Enter new pword!

In short, don't look in the app itself to change the pword, rather expect a notification to re-enter the pword!

Hope that helps...

You can try this too and see if this works.

Change your password on the computer for gmail.

Go to the app market and open it.

If you attempt to log into the Market after resetting your Gmail password, it will prompt you for a new password. This will update the password for your email Gmail account too.
