      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 .

Who's getting a new boat?

Recommended Posts

I got a new Lund 1750 Fisherman last fall, w/115 Merc EFI 4 on it. Can't wait to get it on the water, hoping to get to the river in the next couple of weeks. With the industry in a bit af a slump I think I got a very fair price.

I love my 2000 Lund Rebel 16' and hope it lasts forever! The new boats are much more heavy (I don't need a 50HP on my 16' boat thank you!). I have been looking for a replacement for my Rebel but the new boats are too heavy. I want a light boat for towing purposes (tow behind small truck) with a floor, livewell, some storage and there are not too many options.

I wish I could get a new one every year but I got one last year. A Crestliner 1700 superhawk with a 70lb thrust bowe mounted minnkota, a bowe mounted locator, and a console mounted lowrance 522c Thought about buying a new lowrance for the console and putting the console one on the bowe. But the truck needs replacing more than a year old locator.

I'd settle for a buzz around the lake in your Bass Cat, but some fishing wouldn't bother me, either smile

A bass guy and a cat guy. I guess both those fish are bottom feeders.

I was thinking along the same lines Harvey. Does anyone think that Deitz is going to let someone prepare cut bait ot stink bait in that pretty new boat? smile

I plan on buying a boat this summer...I would do it now but the savings needs to be used for a down payment on a home. For all this to come together I need to find a permanent job first. My job is done in May unless I get offered a permanent position, which is probably less than a 50/50 chance.
