      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 .

Inverter Question

Recommended Posts

I am looking for an inexpensive way to power my Cam Corder. Can I use a Gel Cell like the one I use for my Flasher? I am thinking that an inverter with a gel cell should work. The current battery that comes with cam corder is 850 M/A Hours. A gel cell is 7 amp hours. Even with the inverter, this should work. If anyone has done this, I would appreciate some more info.

Thanks

Harris

Thanks for the info. I know about the hassle of a cord, I was thinking of a back pack. I am video taping football games here in Michigan, and it is a big hassle when the power goes out. At least I don't have to run laps anymore LOL

Thanks

What about those portable power supplies?

Try Googling Black and Decker Power to Go

It's basically a laptop battery with a plugin.

Yeah that would be easier to carry and less hassle!

I saw a smaller one the other day and I thought about buying it for the boat but it was 70 bucks so I passed.

Amazon currently has the 20w version for 17.91

That's a pretty good price. Even has a battery indicator.

You know, these could really open up a bunch of new options for the portable wink

I smell a mod coming on! I've been thinking about doing a camera mount. Wiring up an adapter plug to an inverter would be a nice addition as well. I use an inverter at work with a marine grade power adapter and it works pretty slick.
