      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 .

Making my planer boards work again

Recommended Posts

I've got two Offshore side planer boards that I've got a problem with. The problem is that I've lost the two little bolts and capnuts that connect the front release to the little arm that sticks out of the side of the board. I figured I could just connect the front release with a split ring, but that didn't work- it just wouldn't run right like that (not sure why, but it wouldn't work). Obviously, I could go buy some little bolts and capnuts at a hardware store and make them work. However, there must be some easy way to attach the front release that doesn't require me to use these little parts, that I'll just lose again anway. Anyone tweak their planer boards in a way that lets them ditch the bolt and cap nut?

Small stainless bolts and stainless nylok nuts work well.

There is also an upgraded release you can buy from Offshore. You replace the metal bracket on the board with the new release. The new release works better, easier to use and grips the line better than the older clips. And no small bolts and cap nut to deal with.
