      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 .

buddy heater

Recommended Posts

My buddy heater seams really noisy on low, I don't seem to remember it being this way last year but it could be my imagination. Also even to get it lit I have to tip it forword a little bit or it will not ignite. Is anyone elses like this or is mine goofy.

Are you running it from a 1# bottle or from a bigger refillable tank? It sounds like a fuel/air problem, and sometimes the hoses from the bigger tanks don't fit tightly on the Buddy Heaters. The first one I bought last year was defective and would not light at all, but the one I have now is almost silent.

I was out in the house this morning and played with it, if I tip it forword to at least a 45 degree angle it runs quiet. Its almost like its choking for fuel. I have a hose to run the biger tanks but I am using the 1lb cylinders now and i've tried a few diferant tanks.

thanks for the help

Yup mine does both of those things you're describing. Sometimes I have to tip it forward a bit to get it to go, but it goes.

On low mine squeals or goes "eeeeeeeeeeeeeek"
My workaround to this "eeeeeeeeek" deal is to turn it just a tad above the "low" setting. Seems to work so far.
