      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 .

Stacking cook stove above blue flame heater?

Recommended Posts

I have recently just purchased a cookstove and a blue flame wall heater for the shack and I have room between my 2 windows 2 install these.

My question is do you think it will be an issue with the heat coming from my heater going up directly to my cook stove bottom or not?

The reason I'm asking this is because if I put my heater anywhere else it will no longer be in the center of the house but instead either be close to a hole or close to the bunks and if the answer is NO to the first part then which end do you think I should put it on???

Blue flame heater's work very well! If your heater does not have a fan most all of the heat goes straight up. Myself, I would want the heater in the center of the house if it did not have a fan. My last house was set up like want you are taking about...cook stove was about 14" above heater...it worked out well.

In my shack I have a drop down table right above my Empire heater. I use a propane camping cook stove to cook with. If the heater happens to come on when I am cooking I end up turning the heater down because it just gets too warm while cooking. The table bottom has not ever gotten hot if the heater did run. My heater doesn't have a fan either.
