      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 .

On your ques. I'd shop and read instructions,Most I know of state under flooring,But I've never really read close enough for your purpose.

Where would wireing run? How dangerous is exposed wires?

You need a speciality store where the employees know their stuff and the different products.Unless you install under flooring and follow instructions of whats out there.

Those mats are designed to go under the finished floor, specifically tile floors. Remove vinyl and get as much adhesive as possible off floor, install mat(s) and pour a self leveling underlayment and then istall tile. There is a primer you need to use first as well. You need to remove the vinyl to get the mortar or leveling to adhere to the concrete.

To answer your questions about in floor heat. If it is in the basement all you have to do is remove the old vinyl and adhesive. Then you can thinset the heat mat down and skim coat the top of the mat again with thinset. Wait for it to dry and then your ready for tile. The only heat mat that I would recommend is made by Nuheat and comes with a 25 year warranty. It's a little more expensive than what you would find at Home Depot or Menards, but the quality is superior to all other products.
