      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 .

Do you have gas?

Recommended Posts

The auger/gas consumption post, and my running tally of holes, got me thinking. How many gallons of gas does the average person go through in a year, in their auger?

I went through just under 3 last year and I drill a bunch of holes and fish ~3-4 times a week so just wondering what other guys go through in a year.

I feel right at home with this topic in many ways..... wink

Most of the time I would say I hit the 2 gallon a year mark. But last year, I fished with more people than I used to and I ended up not using as much. With my fishing partners changing some, more of them have augers now and drill thier own holes and heck even mine. So I guess it all depends on who I end up fishing with the most.

I am still on my gallon from last year but running short. My brother and I do not get out as much as we would like but when we do we make swiss cheese out there. I also sneek out for shorter morning or afternoon trips. He still has two kids under three so he has a shorter leash. Mine are 7 and 3 so I get a little more time on the ice.
