      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 .

Dang Lousy Truck!!!!

Recommended Posts

Was all set to get out on the Ice for the first time this season and the Truck broke down last night. Blew out a spark plug and completely wrecked the threads in the Block. Don't think a Helicoil is going to do the trick either. Shop won't work on it until the Monday after Christmas so I am without a vehicle until at least next Tuesday afternoon.

No fishing for me this weekend. Guess I'll have to fiddle with some arrows or something to occupy my time.

Nope Chevy, has blown the plug a couple times, I knew I was pushing it, but wanted to get through the Winter with it.

I will be repaired, question is how much is it going to cost.

Maybe I can bribe a buddy to come get me and put me on a lake for at least one day this weekend. Hate being couped up in the house for too long as I'll go insane.

I've heard of it being common on some of the Fords too, but it can happen to any of them I guess. I hope you're able to get back out soon.

I blew a plug on my Mazda MPV minivan, the day I bought it. Didn't cause any damage however, just put the plug back in. It truly is a sound you never forget if you ever hear it.

Get off the sidewalks, I'm driving my truck again. Repair shop got a helicoil and new plug in, but said the alternator was now not working and wanted to soak me for a new one.

Picked it up in the dark last night and drove it home with no alternator, of coarse had to stop at every stoplight between the shop and home and had to wait for on Fire Truck with light flashing go by.

Finally got home just as the battery went dead, lights and gauges all stopped working as I pulled up the driveway.

Got a new drive belt and alternator instally by 11:00 p.m. and am now ready for a 4 day weekend of Ice Fishing. WooHoo.
