      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 .

Ice House Problem

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me a good place to get a zipper replaced on a portable ice house. Had a little trouble getting out of the house on Sunday when I couldn't get the zipper open. It has now seperated all the way to the top.

I can only imagine someone trying to punch their way out of a canvas house. "Help, I can't get out!"....LOL

The only place I know is Canvas Craft in Anoka. I take it you tried bringing the zipper all the way to the bottom and starting it again?

Any reputable canvas place should be able to
get you fixed up again. A little lube placed on the zipper goes a long way to keeping em
working smoothly. smile.gif

I'm glad you brought that up, Tumbleweed. What kind of lube should one use on zippers on the canvas house? I didn't want to add some the other day in fear of ruining the canvas should some get on it. Vaseline??

I would tink that a shoe repair shop could also take care of the repair. I was in the suba diving industry for a number of years and we used a zipper lube on the water proof zippers of our dry suits. I would bet dive stores still carry it. It looks like a wax pencial and if I remember right the major component was bees wax.

I use a silicon spray on my zippers. It dries and leaves a slippery film.
Seems to work fine. I try to avoid products that stay wet or greasy as this may attract dirt.
Good Luck...
P.S some silicon sprays can harm some plastics. Read the lable.

I also use a silicon lube,but instead of spraying directly on the zipper,I spray it onto a small lintless cloth,then apply it to the zipper.This avoids overspray,and excessive amounts of lube. In most cases, a little bit will go a long way.

Run the side of a candle (unlit) down the teeth of the zipper. Thw wax will lubricate it and wond attract dirt.
