      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 .

Battery Problem?

Recommended Posts

Got a question for everyone. Have never had this happen. Went fishing this weekend. (did well) When I got home I hooked up the Vex to the charger. In the morning the charge light was still at 50-90%. Tried a couple of times and the light doesn't change after charging. When I started the season the light was at 100%. Is it the battery or is it possible the charger is not working? When I used the charger last year it worked fine. Just bought this fl-18 from my Brother in Law. So not sure how old the battery is.

Could be the battery indicator is wrong. My charger has a light that turns green when battery is at full charge. The battery meter isn't always correct. Not sure what type of gage you have mine has 4 lights. 1/4 -1/2 -full -over charged.

My charger and meter started acting goofy two years ago -- not charging/ charging fast, never getting to the full mark -- and then the machine started not acting right, like the gain would go up and down separate from the knob setting.

I picked up a new battery to help diagnose the problems, and the problems all went away.

Buy a cheap volt meter from Home Depot. A day after you charge it the battery charge should be around 12.65 volts. If not it is probably shot.

I have a FL-18 and the charge indacator has never went to the 100% even with a new battery. I check it each year with a volt meter to make sure the battery is good and charge it overnight every time I use it.
