      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 .

Any reason not to ?

Recommended Posts

Just getting ready to put the boat in storage for winter, it has a 70 + gallon gas tank and it's pretty low BUT gas prices are dropping fast. I'm thinking of filling it now before I put it away, any reason not to? Can't imagine gas can get too much cheaper...... can it?

By the time it comes out next year, we'll be nearing Memorial Day, summer travel season blah, blah, blah...... many reasons for gas to take a jump. 70 gal. will get me thru 2/3rds of the open water season, maybe more.

Just curious.

Depending on your storage conditions, a full tank is less likely to have issues with condensation and so it is usually to one's advantage to fill the tanks. The suggestion to use a fuel stabilizer is a good one.

This year the mechanic told me not to fill it up. Condensation isn't a problem in Minnesota in winter and that way it gets a good shot of fresh gas in the spring. Sounds plausible, but so did the "fill it up" which I always did before. Fortunately, up north it is possible to buy "off road" gas without ethanol.
