      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 .

Ice Castle Thermostat

Recommended Posts

Hey-

I am going to upgrade to a digital thermostat, instead of the in accurate factory thermostat. Before I purchase one, I was curious if there is a way to start the furnace in the fish house via a smart phone and a certain thermostat? I'm really not for sure if there is, but I figured this would be a good place to ask. I just think it would be nice to be able to have the fish house warm by the time I get to the lake, if not no big deal!

 

Thanks!

I looked into this a few years back because it would be slick but you would need Internet or some kind of cell plan for it to work.

After looking a little more on the internet, I found something. But it includes a monthly fee, and I'm not about to pay a monthly fee for this. But it shows me that it is possible. Go ahead and take a look if youd like. Wish it could be done thru smartphone without internet access.

After doing a little more research, I found something that seems like it may work in this situation. It is a GSM relay control. It activates by phone call or text message, just needs 12 volt power supply. It seems after the upfront cost of the device, I would just have to buy a prepaid SIM card so it gets a phone number to call. I don't know if I am going to do this, but just wanted to share what I have found so far.
