      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 .

Gortex gear

Recommended Posts

I am sick of getting stuck out in the cold in this climate. I really should face the fact that Minnesota's springs will never be decent. I need to buy some rain gear. I would like to get some nice gortex gear, but don't think it is worth $200. What do you all think is the best gear at the best price? Thanks, I hope the weather gets nice soon. AJ

If you don't want to spend alot of money, a good value is the Columbia McNaughy...Mcauny, something like that, they use their version of gortex and also have the neoprene cuffs. The cabela's gear is also good.

Someone else had recommended Frogg Toggs also. I see those aren't Gortex, so are they really breathable? My problem is inseam length. The Guide Series says the tall size pants have a 33" inseam? That's tall?? I have a 36" inseam! Does anyone know of other brands with the longer inseam lengths?

I bought some by Stearns that are not Goretex but are very breathable. I got the jacket and bibs for 90 regularly 160. It fits me great and I too have a 36 inch inseam.

Cabelas Guide Wear is the best. They are worth the money. I have a set that is ten years old. They have seen major thunderstorms and keep you dry in the rain going over 50 MPH.

They are not just for rain. I wear the bids a lot instead of carrying extra pants on those cold mornings. If you own a Lund they will keep you dry when you travel. grin.gif
