      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 .

Marcum- customer service

Recommended Posts

I have always been on the red team ( both from a political and flasher perspective), recently had an issue with my ducer sticking to the cradle after sitting for the summer. I knew this was an issue however I was not paying attention when I put it away last spring. Anyhow, when I tried to dislodge the ducer I ended up ripping the bottom of the ducer exposing what looks like a circuit board. I called marcum with little expectations as the lx5 is about 7 years old. As soon as I started to explain the issue the rep asked me for my address. I said that's all it took, don't u want more info? He said, nah I know where we will end up anyway. He did have me send a pic to verify it but that didn't seem like a requirement.


I told him we only hear about customer service horrior stories and promised I would feed this experience to my virtual friends on HSO which he seemed to appreciate. Here is a pic of the issue:

it's my understanding the older marcums ducer had some type of chemical reaction with the glue under the foam pad in the holder, it actually made the bottom of the ducer very soft and pliable.  I can tell the new ducers bottom looks much different, but I wont be putting it in the holder.  I have scrapped out the foam and adhesive the best I could.  I then used 3 different large rubber washers that I hot glued into place to eliminate contact from the ducer to the bottom of the holder.

I had trouble with the latest upgrade for my LX-6. Called and the tech talked me thru the upgrade that didn't work. I sent it in and it came back a lot cleaner and working fine. I did pay to ship it to them,but they took care of the rest. I think their customer service is great.
