      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 .

Wood for Smoking

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is the place to put this, but i recently cut down a Crab apple tree in my yard, and have it stacked right now in the garage. Im wondering if this is used for smoking, and if so i'd be looking to sell it, but dont really know where to start price-wise? Anyone have any idea first of all if it is used for smoking, and second what a price would be? Im not looking to get rich :D, just get rid of it and make a little something for the work. Its in logs 18"-24" long right now ranging from 3" diameter to 10" diameter. Also 4 logs 10" in diameter approx 3' long

If you can find anyone who is willing to give you anything for it, take it.

I have beautiful Black Walnut cut into 8 ft. logs that no one wants to buy and it's worth something.

hmm. see i have no idea what my pile is worth. I was told not to burn it in my Fireplace because of creasote. I'm hoping someone will come along and throw a few dollars and take the pile off my hands.

I can get bags full of them. I had a Red Squirrel collect about 50lbs. for me this fall and stash them in my barn!

I don't like hulling them or cracking them--too much time I don't have these days.

Might be worth something for the guys with a 2 chamber smoker with a fire box. Normally they'd use maple. If you put it out on the curb with a free sign you might get it hauled away, otherwise IMO there is not much of a commodity for it.
