      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 .

Go get a can of that Plasti-Dip. It should fix that book in a flash (after it dries.) Just smooth on a good layer on the area that needs to be bound. Or else, there's always duct tape! (Just kidding!).......T

Don't forget the clamps!!! The clamp rig should be a stout & inflexible piece of material, like angle steel, a bench-edge and two bar clamps. Thoroughly jog and carefully stack the pages (but not the cover) on the bench-edge (spine hanging out 1/4" or so) and clamp the angle down onto the stack tightly enough so the pages don't slip across each other, and make sure no pages are hidden inside where glue won't get to.
Brush glue (elmer's or wood glue) cleanly across the spine and let dry.
Unclamp and trim excess glue drips. Gently fan pages and check for loose ones.

You only have one shot at it with this method, so maybe practice a couple of times with an equally disheveled book of little value.

Good luck.

Call around to some of the quick print shops and ask them if they have a Fast Back Binder system, this is a system that takes a plastic material and melts it and binds your book. Tell them how many pages as some systems are only good for up to 90 sheets of paper. The binder has a colored tape for that profesional look when complete.
