      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 .

Cool pickup "extra" to add to tailgate

Recommended Posts

Just posting and FYI - I added a torsion spring like tailgate lift assist to my 98 k1500 tailgate last weekend. Took about 15 minutes to do, and only 2 holes needed to be drilled.

It now can be lifted or lowered with literally your pinky. I had been looking at this little "addition" online for awhile, cause nobody "needs" it, but it looked cool. I finally popped for it and am really glad I did.

I know some newer trucks have this built in (mine works better than my bro's 07 silverado tailgate assist), but for anybody that doesn't, especially if they have kids or wives who don't like the heavy tailgate, this is really a cool and cheap and easy to install gig. And no, I don't work for this company or sell them or anything smile I won't even give the full name here, but it is really neat.

That's all, if anybody else had been looking at them like I was, they are all the claim to be.

Cool! It's called the "Tailgate EasyLift", and online price was $30. Like I said, easy to install, though you do need two people to lift and turn the tailgate to get it put back on with the torsion. It's really basic in theory and application.

I am still amazed at how much "assist" it provides. I am sure it will weaken some with use, but still will work great. It says 80% letoff, but I know it has to be more than that.

Anyway, pretty cool little gadget for the truck, for relatively low price.
