      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 .

Unlike a flip-over style, it can be tought to do a whole lot with a fold up cabin style. I've seen people attach outdoor carpeting to the floor, but I would be afraid of it holding moisture. You could also prewire lighing.

I've fished out of a 6800 many times and some simple things that I think are very practical include (not really mod's):

- couple pairs of the frabill double hooks that hang from the roof poles, gives you a place to hang stuff inside so it is not taking up valuable floor space (jacket, lantern, rod bags, etc)

- If towing by hand or sled/wheeler, making a rack with ski's to strap it onto can make it much easier to tow over snow covered lakes. Seen picture of someone that did this on one of the forums, they also build a box that sat on top to hold your stuff while towing.
