      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 .

fish locator advice

Recommended Posts

Father's day is coming and I'm trying to choose a new fish locator. Budget is about $200. So far I've narrowed down the choices to the Lowrance X96, Lowrance X67C, Eagle 320 C, and Eagle Cuda S/MAP. I know that the Eagle 320 and 480 Fishfinders are less expensive but I've read some negative reviews about these. The X96 has the best resolution but the X67C and 320C are color units. The Cuda has GPS. I'm a recreational fisherman and can't afford/don't need the fancier units. Which one should I go for? Thanks for the input.

I have the Eagle FishEasy480 in the bow and it has worked fine for me so far, less than 2 years. The Eagle 320C and Lowrance X96 both have 320 vertical pixels that will drive your resolution. Although the Eagle 320C has less power and a narrower screen than the X96, the color unit is the way to go. Much easier to interpret the subtleties in the display.
