      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Hotspot wi-fi from your phone and use a fire stick/roku/chromecast, etc. 

Thats what we do... I have a sling box at home that streams my cable over the internet to the fish house. It lets me change channels, watch the DVR, ect...... basically everything that I can do at home. Just make sure you have an unlimited data plan.

First, you need a cell phone with unlimited data and good data coverage for the area in question.   That can be iffy in more remote rural areas. Most likely up there that means att or Verizon. 

Then you need to activate the "hot spot" feature on your phone.  This may be an extra charge from your provider.   This makes your phone into a wireless router wifi access point.    You can then use any one of several devices that attach to your tv to stream programming from the internet to your tv.  

Do you have cable or satellite at home?

I have Direct at home but the idea is to drop it and save $100.00 a month. I have a smart phone from Verizon and it works well most of the time but if I upgrade to unlimited plan I may as well stay with Direct.
