      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 .

Otter Lodge Poles Sticking

Recommended Posts

As with many of these topics I know this one has been talked about before. I just cannot find the posts that talk about it. I have an otter lodge portable with the square poles. Looking for a solution to make them slide a little easier. I should mention they are otter's first design of square poles. I want something that will not make a mess or leave marks all over my tarp. I believe someone mentioned liquid graphite or teflon spray. Please point me to the posts or give me your ideas. I have checked and there are no metal burrs exposed that would cause problems.

I had the same issues with the center set of poles in my resort. It started as one side of it sticking then the other, I undid the velcro and the screws holding it at the pivot point and removed the whole piece, layed it on a table and found that there was a slight bend to both parts that slide out. bent them straight and lubed with silicone spray and reinstaled to find no problems.

A little car wax/polish works pretty well and doesn't seem to leave much of a mess if you use a bit too much. I've used the paste that comes in a can rather than the liquid.

A ceiling fan (such as a tent or somputer fan) has seemed to help this alot for a fish trap voyager. Keeps the air moving and circulating which helps the poles from freezing
