      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 .

Fish House Air Conditioner SALE!!!

Recommended Posts

Just a heads up to everyone.  Amazon is having a crazy good deal right now on Whynter portable air conditioners.  I know a couple others have done this as well but I put one of these ACs in my shack and ran the hoses through a fish hole so I can use my shack as a camper during the summer.  I'm kicking myself now for buying mine AC last month but I still got a good deal on mine.  If you get one, please make sure it is a DUAL hose model.  The single hose models won't work very well inside an ice shack.  I got the ARC-14s 14k BTU dual hose.  Normally $510+, I got mine on sale for $463, but amazon has them on sale for $335 with free shipping if you're a prime member.  Deal ends 11:59pm tonight (7/26) so hurry up!

I have been looking at these all summer waiting for a dual hose deal.... Luckily ( and unluckily) my brother in law has one that he will sell me for $100. Not a dual hose, but my house is only a 6.5x14 that is 100% spay foamed  so I should be good

Well, you talked me into it!

You have a beautiful house, state of the art in-floor heating, top notch work -  just a small suggestion, look at the reviews on the amazon site for this portable before buying. 13% rated 1 and only 45% as 5. Read the 1's to get a feel for why some dislike unit.

Thank you for the heads up!  I actually made an attempt to cancel with Amazon after quickly looking at the 1 stars, but it was too late.  I dug into all the reviews a little bit more, and there seems to be some consistency with people trying to use it for too large of space.  I'm hopeful it'll end up working.  It's rated for 500sq ft, and I'll only be cooling 160sq ft.  Plus YettiStyle guaranteed it'll work well ;)

Also saw a number of the one star reviews mentioning cooling a porch, which is not likely insulated as well as a sprayfoamed fish house.  Seems weird a lot of people said its cheap plastic but the thing weighs 80 lbs.  Cant be all plastic at that weight!

I have a theory that people are getting dumber by the day, and these type of things don't disprove my theory.
