      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 .

Mobile Site HSO?

Recommended Posts

I got a new phone and was wondering if there is a mobile site for HSO? Thanks.

Nope, but it is in the works. wink Just maybe some time with true mobile pages being had. Not sure when anything will be come fact, but it is on the list. More to it than just flipping a switch as most of you know and the site being as huge as it is could be the factor of it being sooner than later or later than sooner. This is an official leak by the way. grin It's on the books and not a case of needing support. More of get through the current mountain range first and then tackle the bigger mountains behind, with going mobile being one of them. I know LIMIT knows, but to make the masses happy this involves going multiple ways which means multiple the work. I have been keeping close tabs on one end that could make this easier. I am hoping it works out with ease and thus making everything much easier. wink

Sweet, can't wait! I was just thinking of posting this very subject today, and to my surprise when I log on, presto, there it is! smile

One suggestion I would make though is have the original site still available to mobile users, some sites don't do this and it gets frustrating sometimes if you need to do something that isn't available on mobile.

All sites have the original site still available you just need to trick the browser into going to the fullsite. Kinda like facebook. It has two different mobile sites and the full site. I can access all three from my droid.

As for HSO on mobile? Sure the main sight could be mobile, I do not think the sponsors would like their advertisements much though as they would probably be pretty small if even shown at all. As for as the HSO forums? I am not sure its going to happen any time soon as I am pretty sure there is no option for UBB to be mobile... YET.... I could be wrong though. But in my web coding experience the technology is there but as far as I know not being used and not even developed for UBB boards such as this one.

It could be beneficial thought! Be nice to see but, like I said I navigate these forums just fine on my smart phone and A mobile version I think would restrict the view.

If you consider the most common phones available, they can be categorized on the basis of screen size give or take a few pixels.

* 128 x 160 pixels

* 176 x 220 pixels

* 240 x 320 pixels

* 320 x 480 pixels

it's best to keep the shape and style of a mobile site as minimal and linear as possible. Since there is no mouse on a mobile phone the only feature you really have is only an up-down feature. This would probably limit the ability to post pictures, or you tube videos if you know what I mean. Basically I personally think it would be hard to merge forum post from pc/mac to mobile devices.

Maybe I am wrong, but I think I am pretty spot on as a retired web coder wink

+1 for disliking mobile sites.

with changing smart phone technologies they wont be needed soon.

Basically the reason they are still there are for multimedia phones and black berries.

    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
