      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 .

Edge2 vs. FL18

Recommended Posts

Although the Edge is great the only really "True Real Time" locater is a flasher. This way the sound pulse that the transducer fires is decoded almost instantly. Versus a graph which takes that pulse and then goes about turning it into a pretty picture. Of course graphs are great for watching how the bottom contour is because it is definitely a lot easier to follow the bottom when it is a picture rather than a blinking light moving up and down. Hopefully that clears stuff up. If I'm wrong please feel free to add your info.

I'd have to agree, just for the main reason that you're comparing apples to oranges here. Each has it's time and place, but both will be in my boat come open water!

The flasher is true "real-time", that's why it excels for ice fishing. In open water, one would have to look at it constantly to see what's going on below. With a graph, you have a history of what you passed over, giving you a better picture as to the structure you are over.
For me, I will be using the edge for that purpose, as many other fishermen use their LCD's for the same reasons. The 18 will come in primarily for vertical jigging, or for slip bobbering for walters.
