      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 .

Anyone use this? Looks pretty fast and easy on the video's.  Going to help my son finish his garage walls and don't have days to get it done.

Pro's - Con's over paper tape?

The self-adhesive drywall tape has been around for a long time. At least 25 years ago I talked to a drywall rep who was in the office updating catalogs and I asked about the fiberglass tape because I was getting ready to do some taping in a bedroom. What he told me was that they had seen very mixed results. Sometimes it worked just fine and other times they would see a small crack develop at one edge of the tape. At that point in time they couldn't find a common denominator for when it would fail, so they didn't recommend it's use. I did use it once on a small job at home and didn't have any issues, but never used it again because I never saw a pro use it on any project, commercial or residential. Because this information is REALLY old, it might pay to call one of the drywall manufacturer's tech support folks and ask them.

Stuff works just fine, of course I have been using it for over 25 years so I am pretty good at applying it. I use it because I just never got around to using paper which can be a real pain to apply. After you get a hang of using it you can also use it to do your inside corners but you still need to buy your outside corners. Make sure your walls are dust free when you apply otherwise it makes it hard to apply tape to wall. Be careful not to put creases in it when applying. I have seams done in my house that are well over twenty years and they look just fine.

Thanks guys for the feed back he went with paper tape. He said he thought the fiber tape worked best for repair areas?
