      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 .

Another computer technical question

Recommended Posts

My wife has a certain VERY popular shopping channel / HSOforum that she visits often, yet on the computer, she's hardly ever able to view the images.

We only have this issue with this exact HSOforum, and 1 out of 30 times to the HSOforum the pictures show.

We have this problem with 4 different computers, and it doesn't matter if it's with IE7 or Firefox 3.

It's www dot qvc dot com and if I could get this to work, then maybe, well, for you married guys, you know how good this would be if I could get the pictures to show all the time.

If other websites work fine for you it's not your PC's. I would assume it's a problem with the HSOforum. It could also be with how large the HSOforum is as well. How fast is your internet connection? If you don't have high speed, it's going to do this as well.

Oh, you've blown one of my fantasies. Here I thought that you were actually the good looking woman in the avatar. I have spent a great amount of time imagining you bounce along on that big zero turn rig cutting grass with that cute kid doing the raking. Bummer.

Do you have Any computers that don't have the issue?

My first thought is right before going to that site, you might try deleting your Temporary Internet Files. From an IE window, choose Tools, Internet Options, then under Temporary Internet Files choose Delete Files. This won't hurt anything, and if you have a gazillion of them it might be part of the problem. If you click on Settings you can see how much space is allocated for temp files, and you can also view the temp files there before deleting them. Otherwise, try emailing QVC. They certainly don't want you to have this issue and would probably have ideas to help.

I suggest deleting your cache files and any old temp. internet files. Reboot the machine. Try it again. Make sure your running firefox. If problem persists, I would do what fishermatt suggested and call QVC and speak to the Webmaster...or just get a mac. wink

I'm on broadband through Frontier.

I've dumped everything I could think of with the temp files, cookies, history, etc.

Rebooted many times.

I don't know, I went through the settings on the router and the modem.

It's just driving me nuts.

Do you get an error of any kind? What does the screen look like when the pictures arent' showing? Does the browser look like it's trying to load but just spins?

No, just the red "x" in the upper left corner of where a picture would be.

Much like when someone tries to post a picture to a HSOforum such as this, but then the picture is not available any longer.

Just for kicks.

Can you right click the X photo and get the properties?

If so try to copy and paste to the URL line in your browser.

I HAVE AN UPDATE!!! I HAVE AN UPDATE!!!

FWIW, dtro, I already tried that, as well as the tech from my ISP. It would come back as either bad link, or server fail.

He tried myriad number of things, as have I.

Anyways, here's the update. Chalk it up to a complete fluke.

I tried LMIT's suggestion of running Google's browser, and IT FREAKING WORKS!

Neither IE nor Firefox would work, it was almost like they would time out before the pics loaded.

It took a LONG time to load, but now that it's loaded once, we can go everywhere on the site, even if we reboot the computer, and it works on all the computers, whether running Vista or XP.

That's good news.

I bet if you were to wipe our your old browser and reinstall it, that would work as well.

Better go hide the Credit Cards

I had it all downloaded installed and running the same way, it's the QVC site that's saying that...

Hmmmmm. Do the Red X's come up as soon as you get to the home page of this site, or is it after you attempt to view a specific item or items?

Dtro -

I've done both of your first suggestions, especially since earlier tonight, when I put up "I HAVE AN UPDATE!!".

I had it working on all the computers, after reboots, everything.

Now with that Google browser, I can bring up the cached pages, but if I try to view anything else, it just keeps saying "resolving host" or "resolving proxy" in the bottom left corner of the page.

I didn't read the whole thread so maybe some of these questions have already been answered.

What operating system are you running? Is it Vista?

To me a red X would indicate that your machine does not know how to handle the file or it won't allow you to view the file.

Can you set the site as one of your trusted sites.

    • And then there are a select few people that don't know their arse from a hole in the ground and have the time to google chit about any subject imaginable and then pretend to be ex spurts on internet forums. 
    • I just bought one for my wife and am looking forward to trying it. I just cant wrap my head around cooking fresh meat that isn't frozen with breading on it. I will have to try the fish with dry batter on it. Do you spritz it with oil or not? Going to be a learning experience!
    • And a lot of people are pretentious snobs who pretend to distinguish  differences that do not exist. 
    • I don't mind Evan Williams but it's no where near as good as Trader Joe's but then again my beer of choice is Old Mill.    I've got a set of these bullet chillers on the way. Somehow I became a booze snob and didn't want my cheap Bourbon watered down and I'd rather have it chilled.  Less than 20 on the big A.
    • Bacon is cured already silly!
    • like any addiction............there are cures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Snow has finally stuck up north. With temperatures in the teens and low 20s it looks like it is here to stay. Several properties in the north are reporting between 6 and 10 inches, while the southern half of the state has seen primarily sporadic dustings up to a couple inches. While many ski trails still need additional snow and time to prepare, the Brule River, Northern Highland-American Legion and Point Beach state forests are grooming trails and making ready for the influx of skiers.At this point only Iron County in far northern Wisconsin is reporting that snowmobile trails are open, on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR).Ice conditions have not substantially improved. While there may be 10 inches of snow in Mercer, much of the ice on Iron County lakes varies between only1 and 4 inches. Those early ice anglers that are venturing out have reported solid catches for panfish and northern pike biting on Lake Poygan and those fishing Lake Chetac in Sawyer County are landing walleye, northern pike and panfish. There are just a few weeks left to turkey hunt and now is a good time to see turkeys feeding in fields and wooded areas. Pheasant hunters should note that the state game farm will be releasing an additional 1,500 birds on five wildlife areas prior to the holidays for some late season hunting. .
