      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

New ATV Battery

Recommended Posts

My factory Polaris labeled battery is losing its crank power, so I need a new one.

Last year, I bought one from a local auto parts store and it was pretty weak so I returned it and put my original one back into service. The dealer I get my ATV serviced at has Polaris batteries, but they are about 90 Bucks.

I'd appreciate any suggestions for an alternative or .02 on ponying up the 90.00 for the Polaris one.

I've posted this once original battery lasted 4 years, then $hit the bed. I wanted to save some $$ and find the cheapest battery I could (they're all the same, right??) I went to Wally world and paid $74 for it. 6 months later, it croaked.

With my tail between my legs, I started a post here hoping to find out where I could find an ATV battery that was worth it's weight for the price. One that would withstand sitting for months at a time, and one that would fire up the quad after sitting on a trailer up to LOW in -30 degree weather.

One word -- Odyssey. Best ATV battery on the planet. Cost? I paid $111 at Batteries +. Expensive? Yep. But spending $111 is much cheaper than spending $111 AND $74 within 6 months.

Don't make the same mistake I did!

If it sits for a while to lengthen you battery life buy a battery tender, you can rig up a quick connect and it will charge/ not over charge while your not using it. It is goo pm

Thanks for your replies. I went to Northern on Monday and bought a sealed Interstate battery for $90.00.

I'm sure it will be a great one.
