      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 .

Sealing Grout/Tile

Recommended Posts

Just laid a slate flooring in my bathroom and am wondering if i need to seal it. Most of the floow is covered with rugs most of the time? I did buy a bottle of sealer from Homer Depot but really don't know if it's necessary??

sealing it will make it easier to clean.Basically it's putting a clear coat over the top to protect it. Do a litte looking on line to see what they recommend for the slate. Grout sealers may or may not be what you need. You can seal the grout for sure. When slate was very popular 30 years ago, "slate dressing" was used. Not sure if that is recommended now or not. gl

Sealing is always a good idea, make sure that you find one that is not just a surface sealer, but one that is a penetrating sealer, do the slate and the grout, slate is relatively porous and will stain...you can get the "wet" look with a quality stone enhancer or you can go with the natural look. Stonetech makes good sealers and I think HD might carry that kind...
