      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 .

anchor ?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to keep the boat from swinging around WITHOUT another anchor? I have an anchormate on the bow. Could I rig up another rope to existing anchor and tie off to stern? Would that work? I think there is a million dollar idea here somewhere.

If you tie the anchor off on the exact middle of the side of the boat you will eliminate about 95% of all the swing you get while anchored. grin.gif

A six gallon pail on a rope centered off the rear of the boat, while anchored off the front. This will help in current or on big chop.

Same is true for a drift, center it on the side, or use 2 pails, it will control the drift.

A Cheap-O wind sock is what it is. The original wind sock really! wink.gif

I thought about the center thing. I'll try that, as previous owner had ubolts installed at the centers for drift sock application. Thanks for the ideas!

I just wanted to point out that if you're going to tie your anchor off to the center of the boat you might cause other problems. If it's really windy or something a boat can get swamped relatively easy this way.
