      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 .

Happy Mother's Day!

Recommended Posts

I'd just like to say a warm Happy Mother's Day to all the moms on our site. I am also a proud mother of a 14 year old who is the joy of my life (I'm feeling so sappy right now-please bear with me! blush ). My mother really didn't enjoy fishing but she instilled in me the love of the outdoors and how important it is to be active. She gave me the love of camping, smores and silly songs around the campfire. smile I'll be heading up to my hometown and visiting with my mom, 3 sisters and nieces. What does everyone else have planned?

I am not a Mom (except to my hubby and animules) and I lost my own Mom in 1995 so no big celebrations. I just got home from the craft show in Brainerd (which was dismal)and I think I am going to sleep all day tomorrow. I got up at 4am and got back home at 8:30 so I am tired. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ sleep

I am a mom to 3 daughters. We are heading to church, than to my in-laws for "a little lunch". My mother-in-law lives in a nursing home in a nearby town, but comes home every sunday for church. It is tradition to spend a little time with them on sunday's. We are brining my laptop to show grandma the 800 pictures two of my daughters took on their trip to Washington DC a couple of weeks ago. After that, we have to deliver a trailer to Mankato (2 hour drive). We may sneak up to my mom's in the Cities and surprise her with a bouquet of flowers.

I woke up at 7 this morning and I can hardly move, looks like I better start working out with weights. I think I am going to hang up this craft show thing after this year, I am getting to old for this. I would rather be fishing..............Have a Happy Mother's Day.

PS we came up with a brilliant idea yesterday, lobby the politicians to swap Mother's Day with Father Day. Then the Minnesota fishing opener would be perfect!

Happy Mothers day to all. No fishing today as I feel the only way to spend the day is with the women in my life. My mother,wife and daughter in law. My wife told me to go fishing today, boy, she is a gem. There is plenty of time this summer to go fishing.

We are all getting together today and are going to do a little grilling for supper.

Again, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.

Happy mothers day to all the mommys out there.

Here's to hoping your kids don't put you through what I put my mom through. I'm surprised she's still normal and not in some sort of therapy.

Whatta woman!!!

    • We have a gas furnace too. But if it's sunny we run the entire house on solar. Heat and electric. It may not sound like much but in that 8x12 we have had days where we need to open windows. The one thing it won't do is throttle down or turn off until the sun goes down. I know it's a duh thing but a consequence you don't think of at the design phase. It was only an experiment for a larger project but turned out pretty cool. Something to do. 
    • This all sounds pretty darn sweet. You may want to start making and selling them.  So, what heats the house at night when the sun goes down?  Or did I miss something? 
    • Imagine just a black box with 2 holes at top and 2 at the bottom with a green house sheeting over the top. All 2x8 cedar and a piece of foam board. 
    • I have a pc type fan in each outlet pulling air through the panel. These are wired to the small solar panels that are behind the plastic sheeting. These are then wired to a snap switch that closes the circuit at 80F and off at 65F. So the fans won't turn on unless they have power supplied by their own solar panels and the temp inside the panel is 80F+. And ya just a pvc trim piece for a cleaner look. We did find that we needed to add just one layer of a ziplock bag to the outlet holes. Just any piece of thin plastic would do. This covered the holes to stop backfeeding at night. And once the fans kick on it's not a problem.  I don't but it hasn't been bad at all. And if you drive north all day it actually works and the house is definitely warmer than the outside once we get there. The whole setup I have maybe $100-$200. The larger solar panel and dual battery system is a whole different deal. 
    • I have given him a bunch of tips if he really took the time to read them before things went south. 1) Add more pictures and some from the sides. Right now all anyone can tell is their buying a hood, windshield and skis! 2) Take the old thin piece of rope off the bumper. 3) Post it on the site that sees a lot more sleds sold. And now. 4) Spend a few minutes and wipe it down clean and Armor-All it and may be spray a little black Rust-Oleum on the skis and other rust colored metal parts.  But that all may be a little more work then he wants to put into getting it out of his garage. Do I have a little experience at buying and selling sleds over many years? Well this one I bought for $2,800. I used it for 3 years and put a few 1000 miles on it and sold it for $2,700 More our less 3 years rent for $100 bucks! Took that money plus $150 more and bought the other one below for $2,850 with only 122 miles on it and it is spotless. So in a few years guess what!  
    • Unfortunately this is probably very true. 
    • Whatever works for ya. To each his own, right? Lot of things on here that aren't my thing, but they keep jabbing right along.
    • I know one you can sing....but it's sad that he has to satirize a song of a musician that just passed away, though. Ah, he doesn't see it from your side Glenn, because it's not his side. If one of us had attempted a rhyme, in reference to him, he'd be all over it.  He needs the site to run according to his views. He's a straight, upstanding fella, ya know. He said so.  Maybe we should sing his song... but he'd go catatonic.  I'm sure you've all heard it in the service. I am surprised it took him this long to jump in. . I will say a certain person(s) did sum it up in that PM, right on the ol' button. *BINGO*!  Carry on! Maybe tomorrow I'll post that song on his thread.....
