      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 .

Lakemaster VS Navionics

Recommended Posts

I'm curious which is preferred and why. I've been using a friends '07 Lakemaster all year, but he just took it back and I need something. <grumble grumble grumble>

Thanks

Jeff

I think that the navionics chip has more detail but almost too much sometimes. It can be tough to read if you don't have a color screen. I believe it covers more territory than the lakemasters. I have a WI and MN lakemasters however and I am happy with them. I am not sure which is more accurate.

Jeff -

I have a Lakemaster 2007 and a Navionics 2008 (needed Canada so we have both). The Navionics has a bit more detail but it also takes longer to load if we zoom in or out. I'm a Lakemaster fan. Next time we're out remind me to put both in so you can do a side by side comparison. I also have an old 2004 Navionics chip that I'd trade you for a Diet Coke or something. smile

I've used the lakemaster a bunch and that last time we were out, I do recall how slow the navionics was to load. It would be great to do a side-by-side. Maybe setup a trolling run and start lookin around!
