      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Reflectix in portables

Recommended Posts

I have a Clam 6800 an am wndering how you guys put up your reflectix insulation. I can put it up on the 2 poles in the middle but every time you teardown do you foldit up or how do you guys attach it. Just spend the time and is it worth the extra heat?

I have an otter so I just leave it up between the canvas and poles. With yours I would think that you would either have to take it down or use duct tape to keep it in place. Do you have velcro straps on the canvas to attach to your poles? If you did I would cut small slits where the velcro straps are and feed them through the reflectix to keep it in place. I used the 48" wide roll one strip down the middle of the roof of my house and I was in business.

Some guys use the foil tape to connect the sheets together.

And yes it is worth the time to put it in your house, most of the heat goes out through the roof of the house, no ice up or dripping since I did it to mine.

If you do put it in your shack take some pic's and post them so we can see how it worked.

I,ve used it before in my portable. I used 3M velcro srtips and hot melt glued them to the shack and the reflectic material. It worked great to help keep the heat in. Only disadvantage was if your out there all day it ices up between the two pretty bad. You can get it at any Menards Home Depot it looks like aluminum foil bubble wrap
