      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 .

overseed or fertilize??

Recommended Posts

I am wondering at this time of year am i better off fertilizing or overseeding my yard. I have some spots in my lawn that are very thin, and most of it is thin. Which would i be better of doing? feeding the existing grass or trying to thicken up the lawn?

Both. I aerate, overseed, and fertilize. For some thin areas I score up the soil, add a bit more seed, some starter fertilizer, and then cover with a thin layer of top soil. It takes about 7-10 days for the seed to germinate and it will grow for another month or so yet. The weather this week has been fantastic.

Watch the individual products you buy. Some of those fertilizer/weed products are not to be used within 60-90 days of re-seeding. Each one will have its own issues so read the label on the individual product to make sure its ok. If you get a product thats not going to burn out your grass seed go for both.

Personally, I'd just lay on the seed and hit it with a light layer of 1-1-1 starter fertilizer.

I think you want the fertilizer to have a nitrogen number below 13 to prevent burnin' out the seed. It's the middle number I believe. I aerated, dethatched, raked, mowed it short and fertilized right before I seeded. Then watered the heck out of it. So far so good.
