      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 .

Garage door opener button question

Recommended Posts

Small problem that is driving me nuts. I currently have only one opener button near my entrance into the house from the garage...I want another near the door exiting the garage outside.

When I hook up the two buttons; the buttons themselves work fine, but when I go to use a remote, the opener does not work and the opener blinks in a sequence indicating that a remote attempted to open the door when the switch is in "vacation" or locked mode.

I called a local garage door co. and explained the issue and they said to go get a standard doorbell button instead of the second opener button made by the opener manufacturer because the two buttons were conflicting with each other. This made sense to me as I have seen this sort of setup before, but it didn't work and the same problem code is indicated.

The opener is made by Linear and both buttons have a pair of wires running to each. Do I need to wire the two buttons together somehow?

I'll take a stab at this.

Are the buttoms wired in parallel (out of one button into the other or series (each button with it's own set of wires going to the same screws as the other button)?

You should just hang a remote where the pushbutton is. I think you will have problems with two pushbuttons because of the rolling code that is on linear openers. Each pushbutton has it's on computer board this is where the problem happens. This is a good question, I currently sell that brand and have never tried this. Probably why the outside keypad is not hardwired. So one pushbutton and all the remotes you want.

You need two wire for each button,Parallel wont work the 2nd button will disrupt current.

I have a chamberlan opener working with two doorbell buttons wired seperatly 4 wires to the opener,and a remote in the car that works also.

What brand is yours? Have you tried to reset frequencies,or change them? Or just push the reset button?
