      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 .

Bottom Line TM

Recommended Posts

Guys,
I've had this problem for awhile. I have a Bottom Line Tournament Master. Every once in awhile, the unit will "lock up" at a depth displayed of 6 feet. Always 6 feet. Say, if I'm coming up or dropping off a bar, sometimes, when it hits 6 feet, it'll lock up. High speed or low boat speed as well. If I turn the Bottom Line power off and then back on, everything seems back to normal. It's a tough problem but any ideas?

Sounds like it's made by Microsoft....like Windows, you have to reboot to make it work... grin.gif No offense Dave, just wanted to put a funny remark on something that affects me in my daily work.

Valv,
I'm a Microsoft rebooter as well smile.gif I think it's a unit hiccup somewhere and the fix is an updated model (I can't see a transducer causing this problem). I thought one of you yo-yo's, ah, I mean experts wink.gif might have seen this problem before. But, it's probably just mine that does it.

Lock up is usually caused by the return of a signal to the transducer before the orignal signal is finished being sent. This confuses the unit and they will either lock at a depth or flash a very high depth. Sometimes dropping the sensitivity down helps. But this is a normal occurance, it can happen to any unit and no two units will be the same.

Ah, thanks Rob! I usually run my bottom sensitivity up kind of high. I'll drop it down and see what happens. (I knew I'd get an expert's opinion.)
