      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 .

Hey Cjac, when my dad logs in all he has to do is move the cursor (hand) over the post (subject) and it shows a preview (the first several lines or image) of that post, but it doesn't do that on mine when I log in. Do you know how I can add that feature? Thank you.

before my last computer went out i had windows XP and that did'nt work. the new computer has vista and now it does. so i'm leaning toward what the other guys said. but if you do change keep in mind your other equipment might not work. i.e. printer, fax, scanner etc. one of the things that angered me about vista. and the fact that sending certain places/people e-mails is a pain.

Actually that is part of this forums software. The setting should be in your profile "My Stuff". It is user unique so make sure the settings are correct.

You can turn that feature on or off.

I knew it was a profile/preference setting but couldn't find specifically where it was at.

Under the "My Stuff" menu, click on "Profile", about halfway down the Profile menu is this setting:

Show Tooltip (1-yes, 0-no)

This is the setting that controls it, 1 for if you want the preview and 0 for no preview when you "mouse" over stuff.

Thanks Hanson, I knew it was there, but I can't do that at all on this computer because of the Java restrictions.
