      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 .

Roof Vent Cap

Recommended Posts

I need to replace a vent cap on the roof of my house.The rubber boot is cracked and is leaking in bedroom ceiling. Any idea whats involved and what it might cost? Do to an injury years back I can not do ladders, so I will have to hire it done. Will I need a roofer, handyman or ??.

Thanks, Mike

Depending on the condition of the shingles, it can be fixed rather easily. A handyman may just slap it on and surround it with tar. Then you will just have to wait for it to leak again. A roofer would probably do it for you for next to nothing. It's the drive that will cost you. Where are you located?

I would give my neighbor nephew or son in law a 12 pack to climb up there and reseal it. I would use sikaflex as a sealer; cover the entire boot and tin an eigth inch thick. This will cost about 15 bucks and will last forever.

hmmmmmmmmmmm lol

What about when you have to get that cover off? What about if someone falls off your roof? Do they have insurance?

Make sure they have the 12 pack before they go up there. Then you know you have a good job. wink

Homeowners insurance will not pay for someone hurt on your property if you hire them. Why do you think contractors pay thousands of dollars a year just for their own liability.

I see your point, but you haven't seen the things I have seen done to roofs by people who have no idea what they are doing.
