      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 .

New Mr. Heater Little Buddy

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a New Mr Heater Little Buddy this morning for use in my Clam Fush Trap Scout. I had not seen these prior to visiting Gander today, they had them on sale for $49.99 with regular price being $59.99.

I set it up and did a short test in the Scout and this thing should be great on cooler days. The only downside I see is there is no adjustable heat setting, only on/off, but keeping the windows vented should assist temperature control.

Looks like just about the right height to warm wet hands when your sittin' in a portable. Nice! Too bad no variable temp though, maybe next model. Like you said, windows should work fine.

That looks like it would be great for a deer stand or goose blind besides ice fishing. Too bad the angle of the head can't be adjusted to point down and keep the ice holes from icing up.

I have been using mine in my Otter Cabin and it has been enough for me to fish in a sweatshirt. Easy lighting and its real good on propane. I got over 6 hours on a tank today.

1st buddy heater I got that actually does what it is supposed to. Would be a real good 1 man heater. Once we get around 0 it wont be enough for mt Cabin but for now its a great little heater.
