      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 .

Vinyl/Steel Log Siding

Recommended Posts

I'm going to install new siding on our A-frame style cabin in the Willmar area. Leaning towards the vinyl or steel log siding that is available. The only steel that I came across was from the well known 'seamless' company so I expect that they will be a bit pricey for me, especially since they would need to come out and do the install. The total area for the cabin and unattached garage will only be about 8 square. I've done some siding in past with both steel and vinyl but I have not seen this log siding before.

Does anyone have any experience and opinions (good or bad)on the vinyl log siding?

the one i have used wasnt to bad to work with goes on just like double 4 goes on. its maintenance free. i would reccomend it. log siding itself, at the time, would have been cheaper to put on but its not as easy to take care of.

As a rule, a good siding job won't leave your door and window trim sunk in. The 1 1/8th J channel on account of the thicker siding will have to be addressed. So depending on what you have for trim will need to be dealt with. Butting 1 1/8th" J channel to brick molding or a nailing flange is barely acceptable. The brick molding should be furred out and wrapped in aluminum. The windows with a nailing flange should framed to a thickness of 1 1/2, go as wide as you like but 2" is good IMO. Those get a aluminum clad.

Other then that I say go for it.
