      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 .

Will this work for icefishing???

Recommended Posts

Let me speak from experience. That will NOT work for ice fishing. Here's why:

I build hovercraft. Anytime I stop anywhere, whether for gas, food or at the landing, I'm always stopped by people asking all sorts of questions. There have been many times when I've reached the river an hour or more later than I intended because of this.

Now, lets bring your beast into consideration. You make it to the access. 10's of fisherman want to know anything and everything about it! So, you spend time talking about it. Then, you drive across the lake to your spot. When you stop, you'll draw everyone's attention, from fisherman, to snowmobilers, to kite surfers. This means that you'll be fishing by 10am, not 6 like you had planned on :-)

At least with the hovercraft, once I make it to the water, I'm home free grin

BTW, awesome machine you have there! I considered buying one I saw in Green lake, WI last year. Just a little too old, and a little too much $$. Have fun with that thing!

That thing looks like a blast. Could be interesting getting hauling it to lakes - hopefully it came with a trailer.

Congrats on the new ice fishing tool.

I would definetly agree about the "tire kickers". I learned really quickly on that having anything "different" that it will attract people. Having a tracked ATV everything takes a bit longer and there is rarely an occasion of fishing in peace as somebody is always curious (I was that guy before I had my own)

I learned a neat little trick called send your buddy to the truck first, people always start asking him questions, then you can slide up hop in the drivers seat and usher your crew along.
