      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 .

LED lighting for my portable

Recommended Posts

I was looking at best hon- kon- led ropes has anyone compared the white leds to the warm white leds? The information on there web site says they put out the same amount of light. Is there a better alternative?

I like warm white because it projects the lighting in a bit more natural and "warm" color. White is nice and BRIGHT and I'm not sure how they are side by side (I think Harvey Lee has both as he's mentioned before). For someone like myself that is confined to an office full of fluorescents and unnatural lighting. I can't stand the whiteness of that color of light when I'm fishing. I have a 48cm strip in my Clam 460 and it is plenty bright. Good luck

I thought I had heard that the warm white wasn't as bright. I have two 48 cm strips of the regular white and they are nice, though they definitely have a touch of blue tint to them. Not bad - still mostly white, but I could see the warm white being much nicer if they had the same brightness.

I'm not sure? I know mine are bright to the point that I'm installing a dimmer switch because it's too bright at night. Buyer beware, people have had bad luck with packages showing up with bulbs not functioning and the return policy is non existent. If you do buy them reinforce the stock cable with a heavier duty cable that can withstand the cold. Good luck.

Has anyone ever tried the rope lights from Cabela's?? Seen them last night. 3 foot long for $34.99.

Guess I'm asking, if they are bright or not.
