      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 .

2003 Chevy Trailblazer problem...

Recommended Posts

Today, while driving my 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer V6 with 80,000 Miles, the thermostat gauge on my dash went almost to the red. But, it didn't seem hot, my coolant and oil was a little bit low, but not really low. When I turned it off all my gauges go down to the lowest point except this time the gauge showed the Temp at half way. What could this be? It has been really cold out lately. What type of things can freeze up causing my gauge to go awry? And help is appreciated. I am going to bring it in but want to get some ideas from anyone on what it could be first.

I would let it cool down and run it again to see what happens. If it repeats I would maybe point my finger at the thermostat. It always seems to go bad when its really hot out or really cold out. You could always feel the hoses, if one is boiling hot and the other cold after running for a while the t-stat is likely bad. It is a cheap fix if thats the case.

It is possible the gauge is not reading right, you could have it hooked up to a scanner and see what temp the computer is reading (the gauge and computer should have separate sensors on that one, so you can do that effectively). That would tell you if the temp sensor for the gauge is bad.
