      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 .

Can you fix a leaky garden hose...

Recommended Posts

You can buy a hose repair kit....cut the bad part out, fit ends onto the coupling and tighten. Most hardware or home centers should have them, couple dollars.

WHat he said. You buy a double male adapter that fits the Inside Diameter of your hose, cut out the bad part, place hose clamps on the hose. Install the adapter and tighten the clamps around the seam. Veyr simple and cheaper than a new hose or working witha shorter hose cause you threw away a whole section.

If you do the repair make sure you measure the inside diameter of the hose. You will need that to get the correct fitting.

Thanks guys!

I was hoping that there was some sort of miracle glue that would fix the problem.

did you try duct tape? grin

I've done the duct tape repair in a pinch on one of my hoses, but it still leaked. grin The method above was what I used for the permanent fix.
