      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 .

Electronics Dealer

Recommended Posts

I may be purchasing a used boat that has had the trolling motor and depth finder removed. I'm a bit electronically challengesd, and I'm not too sure I want to tackle the installation of those items myself. Does anyone have suggestions for a reputable dealer in the metro that will both sell and install these items?

Fish Lectronics in Columbia Heights. I believe he installs. This time of year is tough for dealerships because they are backed up with rigging new boats. Does Thorne Bros. offer installation? I'd go there if they do, cuz those guys know their stuff.

It's really not that hard. See if you can find where they ran the old stuff. I was intimidated at first, took a while to figure it all out, but it wasn't hard and nice to sit back and say you did it. I don't know if Thorne installs. You could call Roseville Auto, they have done some electrical work on a boat for me in the past and they are resonable.

Like the previous poster stated, dealerships may be busy with getting boats ready for the summer, but, Dan's SouthSide sells Lowrance and does a nice job installing them. Not sure how long you'll have to wait, but quality service has been my experience. Action's Fishing in Anoka is a good bet on the north side. Both have done nice work for me in the past. Good luck.
