      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 .

Sunflower heater wont stay lit

Recommended Posts

it will not stay lit. i have to use a zip tie to hold down the button so it stays one. i had this problem with an old sunflower heater before i borrowed it to my buddy. well he broke it and so replaced it with a brand new one. that one does the same thing. is this just an issue with these things? its a cheap source of heat and it will work with the zip tie but its really annoying. anyone else have this problem?

If it isn't brand new I would say you have a bad thermocouple. If it is brand new your thermocouple may need to be shortened or made longer. This can be done by adjusting the nut on it

Sounds like a bad thermocouple, cheap fix. Is the flame from the pilot reaching the thermocouple? It's a little rod that sticks up by the pilot flame. If the flame is not touching the thermocouple, then u can adjust it. If the pilot flame is hitting it, then more than likely a bad thermocouple. Should be a very inexpensive repair.

I just turn my heater down so the button gets pushed in by the tank. And then tighten the nut up. Will stay lit all the time and it by passes the thermo coupler.
