      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 .

Ambassadeur C3 5500??

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a used ambassadeur C3 but there is one slight problem with it.... The line guide keeps sticking on one side of the roller thingy. Is there any way to fix this or do i have to buy a new part for it?

You have to buy a new part or if ya got a abu cleaning kit (or something like that) they had one in there. I think it is a little part that fits into the track that moves the line back and forth. I had the same thing happen to my C3 5500 Reel. I think it happened b/c i cast with it all the time and it just wore out. It is easy to replace too.

Hey Bobb-o:

You on drugs, buddy? tongue.gif There's a post on this very board a few lines down about the same problem. Look for "Reel winds on the left side" or something close to that, and you'll find salvation.

Although you may not need a new part of your screw is loose (on the reel, I mean; see post). grin.gif

    • I just wanted to share some of my experiments with solar power and solar heat on my fish house. It's 8x12 with one 100 watt solar panel and a custom made 4x7 active solar heating panel on the back. It puts out some incredible heat for free, up to 110F. 
    • It's the cooking forum, someone asked about your bedtime eating habits. Not sure how that's not food/ cooking related. You didn't derail nuttin but maybe rundave can enlighten us.
    • After today's drubbing, I fully expect the Goph's to take the Axe and crush Wisconsin's heart next week. Seriously. Why? Because MN teams have a knack for beating the best and losing to the worst.
    • And I didn't mean to derail this thread, somebody asked about my bedtime eating habits. I view message boards like real life conversations, and when do conversations truly stay on topic 100% of the time? And speaking of, seemingly all online forums have seen a decline in participation in the last couple of years, it's not just here at HSO. Can't truly put my finger on the reason why, but it is what it is. The world is continually changing. Sorry that I can't contribute much here in the cooking forum, that's what women are for. LOL Kidding ladies, calm your teats down.
    • I will look into that.  Thank you
    • I keep it on and only fish Upper Red Lake.

    • Looking to upgrade.  What are your thoughts on theses units?  Im still using my Fl8 which is at least 15 years old.  Still works great but getting a little noisy.
    • Does anyone know of a program where a person can create a calendar for your home computer?  What I would like for it to do is be your wallpaper and change automatically at the beginning of each month.
    • Nice rig Snowbound.  What do you use to haul it around?
