      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 .

Marcum not charging

Recommended Posts

so here i am night before i leave for LOW and my marcum lx5 wont charge. battery says 90% but thought i'd better plug charger in just to check if it works. (i just changed the battery). the old battery slowly stopped holding charge. would charge to 70, 50, 30 then just 0. so changed battery, read 100% right away. Great! usually when it was charging it would flash whatever percent. now when i plug it in it doesnt flash. anyone have this problem after changing battery?? or is it my plug for charger?

since i dont have a way to test this, for a quick fix would a vexilar charger work???

When mine charges to a 100%, it just display's a 100% with no flashing.

A 100% display means a full charge, not 0%!

i realize 100% means 100%. my old battery said 0%. so i bought new one. when first hooked up read 100%. its at 90% now and i thought i'd plug charger in to double check everying. well it didnt flash like it used to. so guess i kinda freaked out. maybe it has to be lower % to start charging??

Are you certain that you are using the right transformer plug? I sometimes get my Camera charger mixed up with the Flasher cord and it fits in the plug perfect, but the numbers won't flash.

Might want to check that just in case.
