      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 .

Outside strobes?

Recommended Posts

Going to finish a new Yetti 8x16 shell, looking for the exterior strobes.  I have everything else planned out/ordered just down to these.  What has everyone been using?  The only ones I really like are at superbright led and they are $36 each.  Thanks.

Interesting, I like the looks of the unit but it's not quite the look I'm going for.  I sure like your latest house LRG!

What we did instead was put a switch from the battery and tap into the clearance lights. Might end up putting it on a three way switch and adding a flasher to one of the positions. Although I am not trying to debate the usefulness,  I have never seen the need for a strobe I guess.

Same as the outside speakers.... DANCE PARTY! LOL.... I believe that they are used to signal house location if you have someone coming out to meet you on the lake at night.

Plus + 1 on a Big lake they can help friends find you and may even save your own ars if you were out exploring at night with a sled and porty and some snow comes in and you don't have a GPS.

Oh, I usually text my Boating app GPS location and track (screen shots) with details of what part of the lake to avoid such as weak spots, ice heaves and open water. Much safer going 5 miles over ice and no added cost.

I get a lot of people coming out after dark trying to find us, so they are really nice to have.  Much better than turning on the flashers on the truck/fish house, which seem to attract other fishermen to find out if we need help (a good thing, but a waste of time for them).
