      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 .

Mornning front end shimmy????

Recommended Posts

2002 Pontiac Grand Am with 137,000 miles. In the morning, after the car has sat overnight or longer it feels like there is a vibration in the front somewhere for about 1-2 miles then it settles down. This will be on the highway at highway speeds. Drive it the rest of the day and its smooth as can be. Don't quite understand why as it can sit at the office from 8-6 without moving and it won't do it when I go home...but next morning it will again. Any ideas?

Lawdog,

Inspect the tires (all four) for wear/chopping or flat spots. A cold tire will show more signs than a warm tire. Tires are cool when let sit for a period of time and warm up under use. If you can, rotate the tires and if this changes things. I would start with the tires first and work my way to the front end if needed.

Yep, flat spots on the tires. Both our new Honda CR-V and my F250 that are parked on the cement (cool) slab overnight or longer will gives a shimmy the first 5 miles or so. It was a concern of ours also especially on the new vehicle..

The cars parked on gravel or hot pavement....no problem.

I had a set of Continental tires on my old truck. They shook so bad in the mornings you would think the front end was coming apart. Threw em out after about 20,000 miles and replaced em with Michelins. Never looked back.
