      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 or Frabill Predator

Recommended Posts

Last year I purchased the Otter Lodge green in color with hyfax, hitch, and cover. This year the Frabill Predator came out and I am regretting not waiting a year. The only problem I have had with the Otter is the square poles binding some on my otter. They are not the square ones with the plastic inserts. What's everyone else think of the Predator? I still like the otter sled better but the poles in the predator are unmatched.

You can't get the poles out of square in a Frabill Predator, the modular joint system eliminates this risk.

The Predator is out selling everything 4 to 1 this year. So don't think on it too long, they are running out FAST! Last shipments are all out to the stores, when they are gone, that is it..supply is low now.

The Otter portables have a tub that is maybe the best on the market. The new square poles with the plastic inserts make the sliding of the poles very easy without much for binding. The trim lock system to close the wind and snow out is another great addition to the Otter line up of houses. The windows are now a softer material so the issue with the plastic breaking is almost no issue at all.

For all the portables that I have used and owned, the Otter line scores very high in being a quality portable that is also a very user friendly house.

Check the Otter portables out here and also take a lok at the team Wild model too.

The predators are a real hot seller this year and for good reason. This house has a lot of nice features like theextremely comfortable seats that fold down, the smoothest pole system out there, and a deep, sturdy sled. A lot of guys are asking for them, but I don't think Frabill anticipated the overwhelming success of this product.
