      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 .

Building a fish house, need suggestions.

8X12 house

Im doing this house cheap with free materials. I have 2X6s that I am ripping for wall studs, so 2X2 3/4. How wide should I place my wall studs? 16OC, 24OC?

Also, the floor will be comprised of 2X6, is 16OC spacing overkill?

THanks.

When we made one walls were 24OC and kept the floor at 16OC. I would not worry too much about overkill. The only issue we ever have is pulling it on and off on skids, and transporting it.

Moe-

I have helped build two different perm's and we did one 16 and one 24, the first one was 24. The problem we ran into was there was nothing to secure things to the wall with, Making shelfs, bunks, window frames, haning hooks ect. So after that we said [PoorWordUsage] with that and went to the 16.

How thick is the flooring material going to be? Unless you are putting some really thick stuff on the floor I would go 16".

Going 16" on the walls will result in 10 extra studs over going with 24". So, grab a stack of 5 2X6 studs and see if you think that amount of weight would really make a difference.

I would go 16" all around.
