      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 .

Aluminum sheet thickness

Recommended Posts

I have two places to get the aluminum sheets. One has .030 & the other has .040. Aside from the relatively small diff. in price, is .030 more likely to dent/damage vs the .040 ? Also, I would assume the .030 would be a little easlier to work around corners if need be. Anyone use the .030 w/no problems ?

I have used .030 for a few applications with no difficulties. What are you planning to use it for. Siding/roofing for an ice house? If it is for that I would probably go with the .040 just to have it be a little stronger for trips down the road and what not.

I had my dad form up some .030 for me to use for the rod lockers on my boat mod project. With .030 for siding you will be more prone to the oil canning effect, which probably isn't a big deal on an ice house. The difference in workability between the two is minimal.

i'm in the middle of a camper coversion and i used .040 for roof.(one piece rollled roofing,from back,roof, front) and have .024 (4x8sheets) for the sides. i.m no expert but i dont think there will be a problem. its been awhile since i was comparing but i think there was a 1/2pound per square foot difference between 0.24 and .040. not big deal but if your keeping wieght an issue. good to know
