      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 .

If you try it can't get any worse.

I suspect that a homemade splice may cause some degradation in the quality of the signal but maybe not. I know that when we splice thermocouples we have to take particular care to avoid issues and I'm thinking that a transducer signal may be very sensitive to changes in resistance and such in a similar manner?

It's really very easy to fix and the cable/signal is not all that sensitive. Here are some tricks to help you out:

1. The little crimp collars sold at sporting goods stores for making leaders work well to butt splice wires. Just stick the wires into each end of the splice and crimp it down. You can solder afterward for good measure. Use electrical tape to insulate the spliced wires.

2. If the cable has a shield (foil or braid) around the wires, be sure to replace it before covering up the repair. Aluminum foil works well for this. Make sure it contacts the old shield on both sides of the repair.

3. To make a watertight splice, buy some shrink tube at the home store, and be sure to slide it onto the cable BEFORE doing the splice (experience here!). Before shrinking it into place, put hot melt glue on both sides of the repair. The heat shrink process will melt the glue in place and make a waterproof seal.
