      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 .

Flip over door zipper freezing

Recommended Posts

When it's cold, low teens and colder, the condensation on the inside front of my Clam Kenai freezes. I keep my Little Buddy heater behind me in the sled, so the freezing is worst on the inside of the door and the zipper becomes inoperable. Any thoughts on a fix for this? Some sort of lube on the zipper?

I put zipper wax on mine and seems to do the trick. My wife brought my carhart to st cloud upholstery for a zipper repair and gave her a crayon type tube. Thought what the heck, I probably can't hurt anything... I have an old non thermal X2 and it used to freeze also.

Another trick is to spray the zipper with Pam cooking oil. Works great! And what above poster suggested, leaving the zippers in the "UP" position. Hope this helps...

Later,

Ha, I am in the same boat. Think the last one on my Nanook thermal broke last weekend. What do you think you will use to replace them. Not sure why they thought plastic was a good idea. Thanks
