      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 .

Carharrt Waterproofing

That Rocky Gore-Tex spray works good. I spray it on boots, hunting pants and my Carharrts. You can get it at Gander Mtn., Fleet-Farm, or any sporting goods store. Comes in spray can.

Anyone spray their bibs with campdry or anything else?Any other ideas?I have a pair of extremes that are three years old.It seems like they are letting a little more water through than in the past.

Go to a Military Surplus Store and buy the stuff that is listed for use on the inside lable on a Field Jacket or other outerware. It works great. I have used the other commercial products and always follow the directions. I always apply several coats over the course of several days and have been very happy with the results. Even use it on my Fish Trap Pro. It helps repel the water but also helps keep the material from drying out too fast.

The spray-on waterproofers work well, but are not durable. If you're down on your knees in the mud and water, you'll get wet after not too long, no matter how well you use those sprays. Just the nature of the beast. Still, better to spray it on than go without. grin.gif

Nikwax makes a great bunch of waterproofing products including a spray. I know REI carries it, not sure who else.
It's great stuff, give it a try.
