      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 .

Roof Vents

Recommended Posts

Are any better than others?? I currently have the ceiling down and noticed that there is only 3 vents.... I am thinking the turbine style... For the money they seem decent.

Steel vents are the best, besides a ridge vent.

Turbines very easily can leak.

This is a common problem in most houses that are older. Proper ventilation is key.

Just my opinion, (I'm no roofer) but I agree with Roofer, my dad has the turbine style, and they have been kind of a pain. I've been up on his roof more times to mess with them than I care to think about. Usually its because the bushing areas dry out and they squeak, or sometimes squeal steadily until you go up and lubricate them. This past summer we noticed it was not turning so I went up and found the support brackets for the shaft had cracked and broke so we had to replace the whole thing. When it was off you could clearly see that moisture had frequently been on top of the insulation. I think the concept of them is good, but the functionality isn't up to par. I'd go with stationary steel vents or ridge vents.

Yep, they always leak..... wink Sometimes it is a ventilation problem though.

Steel vents or a ridge vent. You don't want both.
