      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 .

Privacy fence

Recommended Posts

Im going to be building a wooden privacy fence. The fence will be in the place of exsisting chain link fence that I will be tearing down. Im looking for any sugggestions or pointers people have. Products to use, pre assembled verse non assembled. Resources on the internet would also be helpful. This is my first time doing this and it seems daunting. Any pointers would help.

First check with a building official and see requirements of Privacy fences in your area.My best suggestion is make sure the posts are below frost line and,concrete in or tamped really good so they dont lift or move,also a few diagonal braces depending on legnth.

We added a fence a couple years back and decided to go with an alternating board style. We really like it as it not only looks good, but it allows air to pass through and does not shut out the other side so completely.

I would just say be wary of the thin green treated "Dog eared" style boards. The few homes in the neighborhood that used them have either replaced a lot of the boards and one took the fence down and replaced it with chain link. It seems after about 3 years those boards twist, curl and warp in all directions.
