      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 .

Ice Road Truckers

Recommended Posts

I managed to catch the first episode a week early on a Direct TV preview Channel.

Very interesting, they are filming on a Mackenzie River/Arctic Ocean road this year. The speeds are a lot higher. Drew, Hugh, Alex, and Rick (I think it was Rick) are back this year, along with a couple of veteran drivers on the Arctic road.

I was wondering if this show was going to be good this year. I thought it kind of ran out of steam last year. So far, it looks like it could be pretty interesting.

I had my DVR set to record the entire series, so it grabbed the preview on Direct TV channel 101. I did not know it was even going to be on.

I did not want to spill the beans, because there are a couple of interesting things involving drivers from last year.

I thought Canada made it illegal to have cameras in commercial trucks- what happened there? Did they say anything about that, Gissert?

New start was pretty good. What's up with Drew, what a looser!!! Seems it will be a fun year with them flying 50 mph across ice. Do you think these guys switched to this road just to get the money from the TV deal?

I think it's 50 kilometers per hour, not 50 mph. It's still faster than what they were driving before and should keep the show moving along a little better.

Yeah Drew is a loser. I think the comic strip "Born Loser" was written just for him. He can't catch a break, but he also doesn't help matters much either.

You think maybe his boss some him on the show last year and was just testing him? Plus, he didn't even bring a jacket up for cripes sake!! That will tell your new boss something.

I thought I heard the other road (knife) was slowing down. They went north for future income.

I am sure T.V. does have influence on what they do.

Funny thing, I watched every episode so much last year, during the marathon this year I actually could call every thing that was going to happen. Not many shows now-a-days I can do this with.

The build up between Hugh and Drew is heating up! I am not Drew fan, but luck is not on his side! I did not like when he questioned the boss on when his truck would be running. I think he has a "big head", with the camera's behind him.

I do hope he does well though. He seems like a nice guy.

They keep showing shots of drew driving so there has to be something for him to do?

Are you sure they where driving on the ocean, or was it a river or was it a river that lead to the ocean and then it was an ocean? grin

Google Map the town of Inuvik in the Northwest Territories and you can see the MacKenzie River that they drive on north to the sea. They make a small loop in the bay and then back south to Tuk. Google Maps even shows the "winter road" on there but I don't think it's exactly the path they take because it doesn't show that loop out into the sea. The majority of their trip is on the river though and they seem to have exaggerated the ocean driving a bit.

I gave the 1st season a shot, thought it was OK at best. Tried the show last night. I cancelled the DVR setting. Rick is too much of a [poor word usage] for me to keep watching.
