      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 .

Canoscan 8800F?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used this product for scanning slides? It has some good reviews - I realize it isn't professional quality. We have lots and lots and lots of old family slides that need to be digitized.

I have an Epson that does a credible job but have no experience with that unit, sorry. It is tedious work to scan I will tell you that! Good luck it is a worth while venture!

Thanks Dan - I have looked at both the Canon and the Epson - not sure which way I'll go. They are both just under $200 and have good reviews. I have generally been happier with Canon printers so am leaning that way. I know that I'll be putting in a lot of time on this project, but I too think it's worthwhile.

Del, I have looked into having it done - seems to run about 50 to 60 cents per slide. Since I think I have well over a thousand slides, I figured I should get the equipment and do it myself. My parents have a huge box of slides as well - so they could use it too.

I have a 4400F and it does a great job scanning my slide. The device that holds the slides is a little combersome but it does work. My biggest complaint is the documentation, Canon has a real problem with their printer and scanner documentation. I have a canon Pixma Pro 9000 printer and the instructions that came with are worse then poor.
