      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 .

The wood & materials 10 maybe all the equipment with that big battery 30 more. But I know from pulling kids in the sled put the weight in the back and they pull nice. She is a manpowered unit out to the magic spot.

Great job on the Mod's. I like the short skis on the bottem - Does that make a big difference in deeper snow?

I've got a FT Pro with Hyfax runners, and when the snow gets deeper it plows a lot of snow instead of riding on top. Gets to be way more work pulling by hand then it should.

I haven't pulled this one yet she is a prototype but I had a fishing equipment box I built 20 year ago and some old ski's had worked on there well. Adding any weight to a dragging a sled I thought the bottom of the sled to be the weak link in long term use and like you say plowing snow.

Looks good Harp! I had a FT Scout. The only mod I made was to sew some chains on (using power pro) to the skirting to stop the dang wind from getting in when there's not much snow.

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
