      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 .

Google sketch up help

Recommended Posts

I have found a welder that is going to build me a 8x12 aluminum skid house frame. I downloaded Google sketch up and frankly have no idea how to start. Does anyone have a 8x10 or 12 sketch up template they are willing to share? I am fine making tweaks to ensure I am building my dream skid house. 

Thanks

Everyone on here building these awesome plans makes the old man and me seem like we should be on the red green show ha!  We stuck with graph paper and a pencil with a BIG eraser!  Good luck, I like seeing plans from those who are better prepared than us!

Here is a crude Sketch up drawing of the 4x6 skid/spear house that we'll be building soon.  This is 2"x4" 16 gauge tube steel runners, 2"x2" 16 gauge outside framing members welded to the skids, and 1"x2" 16 gauge steel cross members.  The little hash marks on the outside are where the 4' siding seams will be located, based on starting from each side of the entry door.

Moon Lake, you're light years ahead of me even with the graph paper, I just start cutting wood! I have done enough over the years to be fairly good at it but sketch up is definitely the way to go if I had the patience to learn it.
