      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 .

This Is Cool! Look What I Got In The Mail!!!!!!!!!!!! (Includes Pics)

Recommended Posts

I figured the other day I needed some signage for my rigs (truck and boat). I click on the link Rick had in the “Outdoor Discussion, Clean-ups, and Agendas - Keep it Civil” about stickers from Fishing Minnesota, Hot Spots Outdoors and Ice leaders. I found out how easy they are to get. I bought some.

Well today I get a cardboard tube in the mail (less than 2 days). I look and it is my stickers. I had some other things to this evening, but kept those stickers on my mind. Once the chores where done, the first thing I wanted to do was get those stickers on my rigs. Here is how it went (pretty easy):

Got my stickers:

Dirty, dirty window!

Spray some windex on window or surface!

Rub window with rag!

Wipe clean with a clean dry rag!

Mark a center on the sticker!

Peal sticker off of backing!

Center the sticker on window, with mark!

Once centered, start working from the middle outward to the right and back again to the left. All ways start from the middle!

Part two!!!!!!!!

Once this is done, rub the sticker all over to clear any air bubbles!

Smooth all the sticker area!

Start peeling back, the backing of the sticker!

A little more!

TieKcUqsuZDAl4YrK0vvkfgE9KuHj8RW0300.jpg

Done!

TxE55z+Rvk5xvAmJ4WJsuen57JXuUM3m0300.jpg

Do a final rub down to work all the air bubbles out!

O4hdCzKMLuRLOpAFt+9IlzwrNehNEJqT0300.jpg

I also threw a couple on the boat!

Now, if you get an air bubble you can not finger out, take a little needle pin and poke a hole in the middle of the air bubble and work the bubble to the pin hole.

This only took minutes and I have the FM/HSO Badge now!

Who knows????? This could get you out of traffic ticket or a search by the D.N.R., grin NO!!!! Just fooling around!

They look cool and I am sure to meet new friends at the launch's and gas stations. A good way to meet a fellow F.M.'er.

Nice job Josh and they look good. I agree with Airjer, get a sign squeegee and life will be much easier placing those decals on and getting them smooth without air bubbles. You did do a very nice job without the tool.

Those look sharp. Been thinking of doing the same to my rig. I have some I got from Upnorth I think and they are pretty sweet too. Not HSO, but nice fish ones.

I figure since a squeegee is not furnished with the stickers, I would show the mass's the "Shade Tree" squeegee wink :

Plus I just had to get it on grin and actually if you start from the middle on the HSO sticker and work your way out you will have no bubbles at all. I did have a window tint squeegee at the ready, but these stickers went on so easy, it was not needed.

    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon.
