      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 you be running the electric boiler off-peak. Many pepople up here run off-peak and when the run the pex they put down the foam and staple the pex to that then put 18" of gravel on top of the foam then the cement on top of that. This makes for a large heat sink and sometimes up here the off-peak is shut off for a day or 2, this type of system will hold heat for 2-4 days. another style that I have seen when researching on the internet is a hybrid where the 2" foam is layed directly under the cement but 20% of the middle is left open to the gravel beneath to create a heat sink, this way the slab will hold the heat longer than just having the foam completly covering the ground. I went with the pex in the cement and the foam completly covering the ground. This style heats up quick and cools down quicker than the other 2. We heat with an outside wood burner and in the fall and spring when the days are warmer I wanted to be able to shut the heat off and have it cool down right away, not have it heated for 3 days after it is shut down, this is are only heat so I wanted more control of the temp. Research on the internet, ther is a ton of info on there.
