      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 .

Recirculator

Recommended Posts

I'm not certain that I know exactly what this is supposed to do as I never use it, but correct me if I'm wrong.....this function recirculates the water within the livewell by pumping it out and then pumping it back in with oxygen added? Is that right?

How many people use the recirculator? I guess I've always just used the aerator on the timer setting.

The recirc pumps water from the drain port on the bottom of the livewell, runs it through the livewell pump and then back into the livewell.

Some people like to use them when they're running between spots on the same lake.

I suspect the intent at the time was that you could put it on recirc and keep your fish alive until you get back to your house or wherever you're going to clean them. This isn't allowed anymore in some states due to Aquatic Nuisance Species and the potentail to transfer them from lake to lake.

Nope - the aerator and the recirculator run off the same pump on most boats (and I'm pretty sure yours is that way - some fiberglass boats have seperate recirc / livewell pumps). So the only difference between recirc and aerator is where the water is coming from - aerate comes from the lake and the excess water is dumped out the overflow, recirc pulls water from the bottom of the livewell and dumps it back in the top.
