      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 .

My lights don't work

Recommended Posts

So yesterday, I bought six sylvania energy saving lightbulbs. I put them in my kitchen ceiling light... they worked yesterday, and now they don't. The breaker didn't switch, and the hallway light does not work either now... The hallway light has a standard light bulb in it,and is still good, just not working, and the kitchen light has three energysaver sylvania bulbs that are not working... what the heck?

Check and see if any of your GFCI outlets in your kitchen, bathroom etc... are tripped. Sometimes those are wired in to the same circuit.

If I understand your suggestion correctly, then the kitchen lights and receptacles are supplied from the small appliance circuits. If they are, I do not believe the circuit is code compliant. Secondly, if the bathroom circuit is supplied by the small appliance circuits, this too would not be code compliant.

With that said, you might be on to something. It is perfectly okay to protect the kitchen lights with a GFCI. If this has been done, you are correct that it could have tripped.

I also believe that it is permitted for the bathroom circuit to supply lighting loads including the kitchen lights so long as the bathroom receptacles are protected by a GFCI (breaker or receptacle). Again, the GFCI could have tripped in this situation, taking out the lights as well.

ummm... english please?

just kidding, but it sounds like I should call an electrician...

Or, maybe i don't have to?

So after I put in the energy savings bulbs,

-my ceiling mounted 3bulb light does not work(sylvania energy saving bulbs)

-my hallway light does not work(standard bulb)

-the three bulb light above my sink in the bathroom does

not work (standard bulb)

-the bathroom light in the ceiling works fine(standard bulb)

-bedroom lights work fine on the same floor as the bathroom lights

-living room lights work fine on the same floor as the kitchen

-refridgerator and appliances seem to work fine.

Should I be worried about electrical fire?

Should I call an electrician?

The breaker may not look like its tripped, flip the breaker off then back on. At the same time you can figure out if they are on the same circuit, which they probably are. Also as said, check your GFCI outlets to see if one is tripped.

Just for the sake of clarification in case you are not sure. When these guys say GFCI they are talking about special outlets that should have a red and black button on them in the middle. I believe one says “test” the other says “reset”. If you popped one of those, you will need to hit the reset button. These are generally found in the kitchen and baths. Check all your outlets just to be sure.

This shouldn’t be a bulb related issue.

Most likely a breaker or GFCI tripped.

Jari - you related to Peg? I think her last name is spelled the same. Beautiful redhead. Great gal.

Well, there are only a handfull of us left, and if Peg is who I'm thinking she is, yes, I think my second cousin Dale was married to her or something like that, I think she just kept the name.

Not sure about the series, but sounds like it...

What is weird is that all the lights worked fine, even after I put the new ecobulbs in... then ten minutes later nothing worked. How could changing a lightbulb do all this damage?

Bad breaker, or you didn't notice it in the tripped position. What type of panel do you have? The new bulbs didn't cause this unless one of the tungsten filiments fell off and created a short, but then you would notice that one bulb isn't working.
