      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 .

Frabil R2-tec or Clam therm x2

Recommended Posts

Which house would any of you take? Looking to buy one or the other for the cold winter days out here in SD. Just looking for insight from those who have fished out of either or?

I believe that is the R2 Tech model #300 GT Fortress edition. The King of Thermal portable shacks.

The new R2 Tech "09" Edition model 7080 is something to behold too, it really steps of the game a notch.

Yes it is the model 300.Here`s a few pictures of it out on the ice.The material never frosts up.The only thing that ever frosts up is the sled when your fishing in minus 30-40 windchills.It was well worth the investment for me as i tend to ice fish every weekend throughout the winter.

I never fished out of a R2, but I am really happy with my X Thermal. You stay really warm in the house. I think either one will do the job. Good choice by wanting to get a insulated portable. They are worth all the money!

I had seen both the Thermal X and Frabill R2-tec this year and felt that the frabill was a bit more heavy duty. Ill be buying one tomorrow

That shack is so purdy...it don't need the Swimwear Extreme Bikini Team to sell it!

But...If they added them...it wouldn't hurt my feelings any....at all...really!
