      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 .

Paneling in fish house

Recommended Posts

Our paneling keeps warping up. If we put poly between the studs and paneling will this keep it from warping? Or is this a problem from constant hot/cold/hot/cold enviroment? We used that paneling from menards that's looks like real cedar but it's actually a picture printed on the sheet. (we've had arguments with people who swear it's real wood) It's really not cheap paneling so we're getting sick of fixing it every year.

We had that problem in my Dad aluminum custom house. It has a aluminum frame and after like a year it was warped terrible so we contact where the house was built and they said they used a plastic covered paneling looks like wood but it has a plastic look to it. It is all attached using plastic rivits. Then between the paneling and studs they put a vapor barrier ours looked like a piece of about 1/4" foam faced with a piece of cardboard. Ever since we did this never have had problems with it warping. The house still will sweat and condense but no more warped paneling every year. Go under the icefishing forum understanding posting pictures link and look at the picture I took of Marine_Man behind him is the paneling that is in ours house. I would think that you can find something like this at Menards.

Make sure you use plywood backed paneling! At home depot it tells you if it is suitable for mobile homes right on the back! Thats what you need! I bought mine at Menards last year and made sure that it had real wood backing and works great! Another thing you can use is called Luan Plywood also available at menards, it is 1/4" thick but very light! Works well also! Hope this helps!

I used 1/8" mahogany paneling in mine but I turned it backwards so the ruff side was to the interior of the house then I painted it white so the inside of the house is very bright even with low lighting. I did put a vapor barrier between the paneling and studs, I've had no problem with it warping and it has been in use for 15 years.
