      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 .

Map pricing for flashers

Recommended Posts

Do the Marcum/Vexilar's always stay map priced, or is it a seasonal thing. I guess what I really want to know is will they be on sale after christmas??

The chances of seeing Vex or Marcum below map pricing is unlikely. Almost every year they sell out. Many people were disappointed because they waited for a sale price that never happened. Result no locator for the season.

Buy it now / not later.

Just for everyones information MAP pricing does not keep anyone from selling a unit for any price they choose.

MAP stands for minimum advertised price. It only means that dealers are not allowed to advertise a price lower than MAP or they can be cut off as a dealer.

Any dealer can sell a Vexilar or a Marcum for $99.00 if they so choose. They just cannot advertise it for less than MAP.

Telling a dealer that it cannot be sold for less than a certain price is called price fixing and is highly frowned upon by the FTC, as well as states Attorney Generals.

So you are welcome to wheel and deal in the store but do not expect to see them advertised for less. Also be aware that the markup on marine electronics is relatively small compared to most items. grin.gif
