      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 .

Some Questions about pbase.

Recommended Posts

I have some questions about pbase. I have been using photobucket for a couple of years I guess, and I am tired of all the darn advertising and I know some of you guys use Pbase.

So some questions:

1.) Are you happy with pbase

2.) any cons to using pbase

3.) What package would a person normally need? 500 mb enough?

Do they let you know if you are full?

Any help answering these questions would be appreciated.

Hi Paul.

1. Yes, very happy w/Pbase... excellent worldwide exposure, I've received a fair amount of requests through that site... the Google search bots can get through and find your images easilly... something about tableless CSS code maybe?

2. The heavy $20.00 fee it costs per year... just kidding, no cons whatsoever.

3.I think I have the 500MB package and have used up 338 MB to date... but I have alot of images out there... 500 MB is plenty if you are saving your re-sized images for the web there... which I recommend.

4. Don't know, haven't gotten to the full point yet.

Hope this helped.

Yes That helps. I was looking at the pro subscription to photobucket at $25.00 a year but I like the fact with pbase you can direct someone to your images with a simple url such as pbase/egotistical_maniacle_picutretakingdude.com (that is made up don't go there). I Think I will renew my trial sub and go from there. Thanks for your help Buzz.

Paul, Pbase is great. I have been revamping my site lately and it's nice because you can do a lot of different things to make the site your own. Check out mine for an example. The address is in my signature.

As far as the 500mb goes, it's great plenty. I have 400 photos on mine and I'm using less than 100mb. It's good to have your resized images on there to help prevent people from stealing them. They can still steal them but they're only going to get maybe 4x6 print.

The only con is that if you want to use it to post pictures to a forum I haven't found an easy way to do it. It seems kind of like a lot of messing around so I still post my images to photobucket to put on forums.

Check it out the $22 a year is well worth it.

I would take a look at Smugmug as well. I've got a few accounts through them and my professional site is through them. A lot that you can do with the look of your site and if you decide to start selling everything is in place. Just another option that is worth looking into.
