      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 .

steel siding repair

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone here has replaced a piece of steel siding in the middle of a wall can it be done the same as vinyl with a zip tool ?

No, you can't but there is a way to cut out the damaged piece below the lap and cut off the nail fin of the replacement piece and slide the piece into position and pin nail it. It is really tricky to do and make it look good.

Yes! You can it is hard but possible to do! It is done the same way. I'm a contractor and have done it a few times. One time the dish guy installed the dish in the wrong spot. For tools is the zip tool, tin snips, and a flat bar to remove nails. When done right it looks like nothing happened and the siding should look great.

My sider has replaced a a section of both steel and aluminum siding on a wall without taking from the top down. Like others have mentioned it's tricky to make it look perfect.

When replacing flashings on homes with steel siding we detach and reset to roof line all metal siding.
