      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 .

Snow on ROOF

Recommended Posts

Do I need to expect to have to get someone to remove the snow off of my roof? Does anyone know anyone in the Hackensack area that provides this service?

Thanks?

What snow? I haven't seen measureable snow in northern MN in what, 3 years? wink.gif

The pitch of your roof will make a big difference. I've seen really deep snow on some of the shakiest roofs on really old shacks hold up fine.

If we get over 2 feet of snow it will be time to get it removed. I don't know any service that does this near Hackensack, but if it's really bad, I frequent the area and could help you out in a pinch. I end up doing it every (heavy snowfall) year at the cabin anyways! Our place is not far from Hack.

My answer? let it be, unless you have severe ice dam problems with water, or such a poor roof, construction wise, then you need a whole new roof, lumber and all. I removed lots of snow and ice from roofs in the twin cities as an xtra job during the 70's to the 90's. Believe me, everytime you touch your roof, especially in the cold winter, you shorten the life expectency of your roof a lot. That being said, if you do need help, call this winter, I live just north of Walker aways. Dave

I appreciate the help! I guess I will see how this winter goes. I'm in Indiana and we rarely see as much snow as you do up there. My roof is new so I'll follow the weather on the Ten Mile *** . web site and see how it goes.

Thanks,
Tad
