      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 .

How do I have portable power?

Recommended Posts

So how do i bring power to the led rope lights, or whatever i need power for in my portable? I'm sure ya'll ain't draggin' a generator out on the ice each time, so what would one use to power up the ropelights, or whatever?

I have an extra gel cell battery I bring with.. I also dont have the rope lights but bought the lights that ghetto cruzers put under their cars. I have found them to be very good! But a bit more pricy!

I use a spare vex battery and ran speaker wire through the tubing to them. I can go a whole weekend on a battery. Probably more, just charge when I get home.

I too carry a power pack because it can be used for many things and an inverter added is just one of them that opens the doors to even more things beyond even lights .

I use an inverter that I have for the travel trailer. Make sure you add up the watts you'll use so you get a big enough one and a battery to take care of it. It should'nt take a very big one but sometime we kind of keep adding things.
