      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 .

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if someone know's where I can get different kinds of rod decals. I have looked at mudhole and was wondering if there was other places that has more options.

Decal Connection. I have them make custom decal's for my rods. They also carry an extensive collection of fish decals (and a few flames) which are pretty nice.

No,

I've been building rods up there for almost 20 years. Nothing wrong with plugging a good store!!!!

They have been in business along time for a reason. Great service and knowledge that can't be beat.

No different than you recommending Decal Connection

I hear you there. Why change a good thing if it works.

Sounds like they treat you right, and I know thay are vary good at what thay do.

Mid West rod and Reel is a bit closer for me(2 blocks) and Al and Bill Treat me well(and every one else that stops in).

Its nice having two shops in the metro, one on each side of town.

Remember back in the 80's (maybe your younger) I'm 47.

There use to be Rod Craft in Bloomington, Joes in St. Paul,

and a few others.

Are Thorne Bros & Mid West rod & Reel the only shops in the Metro.

They always go the extra mile. They appreciate the referrals and new Customers that come in that mention my name.

Let's just hope these two places will be around for a LONG TIME!!! grin

Thay are the only full service shops in the twin citys(Blanks, Components and classes)

There is somthing to be seid about the internet, and the little guys. frown

I remember Rod Crafters, I was young(I'm 31). My dad use to get rods repaired there. Thats how I got in to rod building(I started when I was 13).

The classes and the customer service is what keeps the shops open. IMO It's nices to see what your getting befor you buy it. Like buying cork on line or a blank based off the manufactuers ldea of what the action is, what a gamble.

Good wraps

Andy
