      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 .

Staining landscape pavers

Recommended Posts

My bullet edgers have been in for 20 years and have faded from original tan color.  Anyone have experience with staining these. Could you use regular deck stain or is it a specific product?   Kind of spendy to replace so would like to try this.

I don't have an good answer except to suggest that painting them will be a PITA as they have cracks, ridges, and most importantly dirt all around them.  How long do you intend to stay in the house?  Would it be acceptable to mount a board in front and make it whatever color you want?  It wouldn't have to be much as it won't be holding anything back.   Just some ideas.

I am redoing all the landscaping around the house  because it has shifted and settled over 20 years since installed.   Remove, repair, replace.   Plan to stay here till I die.    Seems like a waste to replace with new.  Watched a few videos and yes it looks like a PITA but I have time and am just picking away at it.  Gonna try some oil based deck stain on one for a sample.  Next time at the big box store I'll see what they know about it.  Just thought I would ask.  A lot of resourceful people here.

Check with a real paint store if you're going to do it.  Abbott, Hirshfields, some place like that.  They have a lot better exposure to a variety of things than someone at a big box.

Went to the paint store today and there is a product for it.  It etches into the stone and is about $75 a gal.  Only need one coat  so should go a long ways.

Thanks for the replies.
