      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 .

need a new vacuum, as I ran over a bouncy ball with ours and it busted up!! I know I want a bagless model, but does anyone have any recommendations?? I briefly looked at them at wm. are the dysons worth the money, or will the ones for $150 to the job they claim to do. I don't want to spend the money for a dyson if I don't have to, but want a vacuum that cleans!!

Do a search on here for Dyson and you'll get many responses for both the Dysons and other models.

We have a Dyson, am happy with it, but there's many with other models that they're happy with as well, for a cheaper "investment".

I have an Eureka it cleans, and didnt cost much, it is about 7 years old and I havent had any problems with it yet. I had a Kirby before this, and I like the Eureka much better, its alot lighter, and the Kirby broke in 1 year, they wanted $300 to fix it. I bought the Eureka for under $100 and it cleans well.

I just went thru the same thing. I did lots of research and ended up with a Dyson DC17 designed for a house with pets. I did a test when we first got it, I vacuumed the house with the old vacuum then the Dyson. Un freaking believable what it picked up! The model I have alows me to turn the power broom off so I can do the hard floors as well. The Dyson is built with very high quality parts, the wand is a really cool idea, it's super easy to empty and it's pretty quite for a vacuum as well. Yes, it's worth the money.

We went through a vacuum cleaner every year until we bought a Dyson. We've had it for three years now with no problems. The hose cracked last year. We called the company and had a new one the next day at no charge. We questioned if we should get the pet model and the customer service person told us that they both had the same motor. Her words were don't waste the extra money.

Refer to the old post. Also, check the "Carpet and Rug Institutes" HSOforum on approved vacuum cleaners. You will notice not a single Dyson on the list. Dyson's have a very high rate of suction and the rotating beater bar does not have a height adjustment to lift the power head off the surface of the carpet. The longer tufts get sucked up into the rotating brushes-causing the upper portions of the tufts to untwist, fray or develop a fuzzy appearance.

I was wondering about what the "pet" model had that the other didn't, other than a $50 increase. We went with the pet model anyways because the place where we made the purchase only carried that model in the "DC" series and we had a 20% coupon so it made it cheaper than the regular model.

    • I was out last nite----7 inches of ice
    • Man wouldn't I love to have a nice F100!   Years ago had a PU from Ford with that rock solid, dependable straight six! What a piece of work. I traded if off and the fella I traded it to did the same and it went through a bunch of owners. And the last time I saw the carcass of the thing it rigged to big saw (24" blade) and was being used to cut firewood and slabs for cabins. Hell, it may still be running!!
