      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 .

Yet another weed-n-feed tip I thought of today.

Recommended Posts

If you're using the granular weed-n-feed, you might want to buy double the amount you need, so you have another round's worth for the fall application.

Usually the stores will start to close it out come mid June, early July, since their marketing department will tell them that it's now time to get in the grub / insect control, so you can save a couple of bucks then.

Usually it's somewhat hard to find for that fall application, since 90% of people will think that it's time to get the dandelions now, and by the end of the year they're tired of putting money into the yard, even though that's the best time to do the application.

I have half bags of all kinds of weed & feed. Summer, spring, fall, and just feed. Is there any reason I couldn't just mix it all together and apply it to get rid of it?

There's really only two things that you MIGHT notice, although most likely not.

The first is that if the bags are somewhat old, that the effectiveness of the "Weed" part could be a little diminished.

The second, is that depending on the different formulations of the "Feed" part, you could get heavier growth since some of the bags could have either higher formulations of nitrogen, or less slow release.

Again, you may not even notice the difference in the products.

I would personally go ahead and use up those bags. It's not different than companies that have overstock of fertilizers. They'll offer different locations a discount to be able to spread those products, with a guarantee that there's at least a certain amount of whatever nutrient.

Another reason to get it now is probably around July 4 christmas stuff will be out and all the fertilizers and grass seed will go away.
