      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 know what you're trying to do here, I had the same issue until this year when I found a certain style garbage can at walmart that worked absolutely perfect. Odds are it won't for you though, I asked my buddy the plumber where to get that big pvc and he said youd only be able to find it wholesale at the big companies. but its out there. Let me know what you find somewhere down the line they'll quit making those garbage cans.

Pipe this size is used for sewer main applications. I've bought plenty of it at a place in Forest Lake. It's called "Winnik Supply Inc." Phone #651-464-3920.

With the lack of snow to bank the houses, I assume you want the pvc so your holes do not freeze up. Could you cut out the bottom of a 5 gallon pail? That might work. Just a suggestion.

Check out my post under this topic.

PVC that big is tough to come by and expensive. Besides if you already have holes cut in your floor it may be tough to find PVC with the right outside diameter to fit your holes. Typically they measure by inside diameter so a 12" ID has probably a 12 1/4" or 12.5" OD, which may require you to modify your holes.

If you wanna take a look at what I did with the cheap flower pots from Wal-mart your welcome to swing into my house on the SW side. If I recall you are over on the east side.

Good luck, I will shoot you my cell number if you wanna swing by and take a look.

Thanks for all the replys,the reason I was looking at PVC is because I need to be about 18" high to get above the floor and the holes in the floor are a little small for regular buckets.I will have to find out what the price is for PVC that might make up my mind.Grabs are you out of shore acres,I might have to swing by and take a look.

Take Grabs up on his offer. I gave him the original idea and if he did it the same way I did, it's the slickest operation you'll find. Flower pots stack together when not in use for easy storage. Very light in weight.

    • Way cool. Do you have some kind of protective cover to put over the panels when you going down the road?  Lot's of ice chunks and other road debris flying around in the winter. Even the road salt build up over time may not be good on them.
    • Bet there weren't any leftovers.....
    • jmercil......... In your last pic, are those PC fans up near the  ceiling?  If so, tell me a little more about your setup.  Fans only at the top, or top and bottom?  Some type of pvc flange where they wall mount?  PVC pipe in the walls? etc, etc.  
    • Most wheelers start hitting the ice at 6" do you plan to pull it out with a wheeler or yourself?
    • It is really beautiful! Awesome pics.
    • slice, grill, garlic,salt pepper, eat. 
    • Who's "They"???
    • Now you are catching on! BTW, if you haven't heard, they finally figured out that eating cholesterol in food doesn't raise blood cholesterol.
