      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 .

aaft Nav light issue ......

Recommended Posts

Well, not a good day for Gadget. I if can't start solving my own problems I'll have to change my handle!

Haven't had the '03 pro v out since July, that was a day trip so was going over things.

Have gotten the EXTREMELY finicky x104c to work most of the time but when testing the lighting for a full moon run to the pond, my aft tall white nav light doesn't work. Tried the forward red/green light in it's place and works fine, Checked the bulb, not shot, try in bow socket, no luck, must be the wires inside - will have to wreck it to get it open so off to cabelas I go and get a new (expensive but LED) stern light. It doesn't work either.

I plug it into the bow light socket and presto, works fine. now try the old stern light in the bow socket again so I can return the new expensive one but no ...... the old light still won't go. Tested the socket with a volt meter and both put out the same, new stern light and bow light work in front, but only bow light works in back.

Took a thin blade and made sure the posts were spread ok, cleaned with elec contact cleaner, that didn't help either.

Where did I go wrong?

Hey I got one!!!

Fussed around because it makes no sense and discovered that the polarity of the bow and stern sockets are reversed. No big deal to incandescent lights, but way big deal to leds!

Reversed the polarity and presto, we're fishing tomorrow night! hope this might help someone else.
