      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 .

I remember BackwaterEddy posting up something regarding this. I'll cut-n-paste what he had to say... I'm sure he won't mind.

"This stuff is just way too cool not to recommend!

I just rigged a Frabill speed shack XL with 12V LED rope lighting (no big deal a few zip strips and Bada-Bing-Bada Boom, your done). My boat gets the full treatment next.

I got mine from "Platinum Lighting Inc." of the net, very reasonably priced too. You can get it in several different colors and also can be rigged to a 12V dimmer. A very good boat deck and fish house lighting system. It works great as a indirect lighting option for night fishing.

Very easy to work with, it can be cut to length anyplace along it's full length in 6" intervals, to fit you instillation needs. Just screw on another lead and cap the cut end, and you set, simple enough, even for me.

They say 20' will draw 9 amps max, they also recommend to not run more then 20' off one power source. They can be split with a splitter T very easily.

Where can I pick up some 12V rope light in the metro area? All I've found at the big shops (Menards, Home Depot) is the 120V A/C stuff.
