      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 .

Screws for attaching Alum. sheets ?

Recommended Posts

What is the best method for attaching the alum. siding to the wd studs for a house. I have seen both the washered screws & some w/just the screw (no rubber washer). With colored siding & not a matching screw available, what have others used & where's the best place to get ? Are S.S. screws worth the extra $ ?

Aluminum siding or steel? Aluminum in contact with steel can cause a bad reaction. Have you ever tried to pull a spark plug out of an aluminum head that's been there too long? The washered screws are a good idea. Try painting the heads after they are installed if you're concerned about the color. Painting them before install is easier but you will have to touch them up anyways. The paint will also mess the heads up when you're trying to drive them.

No need to ss screws.

FishNCrappie: When you say you are using the ones with the rubber washer, do you mean pole barn screws? Is you house framed in wood or metal studs? Also, where is everyone getting the aluminum sheets?

Thanks,

I picked up my sheets of aluminum at Garelick Steel in Mpls. 5' x 10' sheets of .040 painted aluminum for $67.50/sheet and 4' x 8" sheets of diamond plate for roughly $85/sheet. I also had them bend and cut the entire lot. All told, it ran me approx. $900 delivered for a 6.5' x 14' with 3'V house.
