      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 .

I started the weed eater yesterday and gas started dripping down. I found one of the fuel lines had split. I found some oxygen hose that I thought would work and although the proper size, it was too soft and would continue leaking where it connected. I just need to get the proper tubing. However, while messing with it I noticed what appears to be a gasket sticking out in one area, as shown in the photo behind the pull cord handle. This doesn't look quite right. It's tight and can't possible move so how did it get in this position? We went from 3 small engine shops locally to just 2 and the one no longer works on weed eaters and the other is just a 1 man shop inside a Hardware Hank and I was told it would be a 6 week wait. By then it will be just about time to get the snow blower ready.

Unleaded gas / ethanol & sunlight dry them out pretty quickly, so they crack easily. I think Reb's right on the gasket as I recently had our small rototiller apart to replace a primer bulb, it too had cracked, & that gasket was sticking out a bit as well.

I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
