      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 .

Questions for permanent house!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have a question about where to get foam for a bunk bed. I just bought a permanent house and am planning on building a couple of bunks in it. Where do I get this from? ANyone have any ideas? What did the rest of you do with your bunks. Also, have any of you heard about a hookup that will run your trailer lights and also charge your bateries at the same time?

I saw neat bunks built out of canvas with a piece of pipe ran through a continuous loop similar to camp cots. the pipes were attached to the walls into slots in a 2x4. When they weren't being used, they could simply be rolled up and put away. they looked pretty comfortable although I did not try it myself.

kooba, check out any surplus store around you, we got foam for our bunks at one. They had many sizes of foam in the store, two, four,six inch and many others also. They came in large sheets and we cut them down to fit our needs.The bunks we put up were 3/4 plywood by two feet wide and six feet long, they were hinged to the wall so when not in use they folded down and were out of the way. sweet dreams.<(((((><

I've seen several types of foam while out shopping with the wifey at JoAnn fabric and Michaels stores (gotta pay the price to get to go fishing!) They had many thicknesses/densities of foam and I don't think the prices were too unreasonable-can't verify the prices though I wasn't looking too closely just making a mental note where they were for when I'm looking for it.

Check with your local Upholstery Shop. I don't know where your shack is at, but I had some cushions made for my bunks at Solona Upholstery in Malmo,Mn. 320-684-2900. They use good quality foam and sew on a removable cover that can be taken off and washed.Price depends on size, and how fancy you get with the covers. Hope this helps.
