      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 .

Walleyemaster12-
Last night I actually sat down and began to write a letter to your mother about how positive an experience building a fish house can be. The letter got rather long, and before I finished it I felt that maybe it would be too preachy to do you any good. I felt I was sticking my nose where it doesn't belong and I deleted it, but I'm glad the three of you have decided to give it a shot.
I built a shack (my first) last winter, and everytime I've used it this year I seem to pick it apart with things I plan to do different next time. I have a house that gets complimented on occasionally but I definately made my share of mistakes along the way. You would do well to learn from some of those experiences by living vicariously through the topic link "Hubcat" provided you on one of your previous questions. There are also some nifty "new" products out there who's existence I was unaware of during my project. I would include "catch covers" in my plans also if I were building a shack right now.
I have been learning a little bit about frames lately and I can help you with some of your questions. Legal width for highway use is 8'6" (102"). If you plan to have the wheels on the outside of your shack than be sure to keep them within 102" and you will be legal width. This is a law, that by all accounts I have heard, seems to get little enforcement . However, I also remember the day when having someone dig through your luggage at an airport was a rare occasion too! wink.gifLaws are for everyone, and I prefer to not have to be the one guy that law enforcement uses to set the example to the rest of the world.
If you are planning to purchase a professionally manufactured retractable frame be sure to check back to Fishing Minnesota before you buy elseware. There should be some rather exciting news for do- it -your-selfers here very soon. I'll help answer any questions I can in the future also so don't be afraid to ask.Remember to keep it fun-TROY
