      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 .

Best replacement siding

Recommended Posts

ABC isn't that great, just my opinion.

For steel siding Edco and Revere are about as good as they come. I used Edco on my house in the dutch lap. It clips together better than Revere and is darn near as strong, if not as strong.

For vinyl I would choose either Revere, Certainteed, or Thunderbay, all in the big lengths for minimal splices and .046 thickness. They all have the 3/4" lap. For normal size siding (12.6 ft.) I would use Owens Corning .048. It is the heaviest vinyl I have seen.

With either of them you can add accents like super corners, lineals, shakes, scallops, etc.

Steel can dent and scratch. Vinyl can break or fade. Hardie will rot and has to be painted.

I choose steel over all, but for the price, high grade vinyl is very good. I wouldn't sell cement board to anyone. Looks old, needs painting, and can rot on your house.

I also wouldn't let anyone use "contractor only" stuff. It's a sales tactic.

Another thing is that vinyl is about the same price as steel to buy, but the steel labor is much higher because it is more particular and harder to work with. Very few do steel. Most do vinyl, next is cement board, both because the install is rather simple.
