      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 .

gorilla winch

Recommended Posts

A buddy of mine is trying to save a few bucks on a winch for his new sportsman. He is looking at a Gorilla brand winch. I have only used the Warn winch and don't have any experience with the other brand. Anyone have one and have any comments on it?

Some say they are fine, but I don't know. I wouldn't trust it myself. Who knows though, it may last him many years. For what they cost, you could try one out and throw it away next year.

I would go with a Viper from motoalliance for a knock off winch.

I purchased one of their winches, but I bought it off of an internet auction site. It is the same company but they run lower prices there.

I bought the 2500XT and the mounting bracket. They also have a top notch customer service department.

This is my first winch and all that I am using it for is plowing, but it is working well for me.

They are a company based out of Minneapolis and I think that is a plus too.

I have one and the first time I tried to use it (this deer season) the knob you pull for it to freespool busted off.

If it's something that's not going to be used frequently I think he'll be happy with the Gorilla. If he's looking for a winch for a plow that will be used routinely, he should probably spring for the tried and trusted Warn.

They have a lifetime warranty and a very good reputation for customer service. But if it falls apart when you're stuck in the middle of nowhere...I wouldn't hesitate to get one for the few times we really need one.

jeep guy,

The knobs on the gorrilla winches are not supposed to be pulled, you turn it. Mine works fine.

Call them up they will take care of you.
