      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 .

Cordless Phone

Recommended Posts

Looking for a decent home phone. I have tried 2 in the last 5 weeks and have returned both. I have no problem spending $$$ to get a decent one.

Thanks

If you have high speed internet service, That could be your problem. You need to have a cordless phone that is 5.8 GHz. When we went high speed service my cordless loss volume. A sales person at best buy told me I had to go to 5.8 GHz. I bought a Panasonic and it worked.

Merely having high speed internet shouldn't cause your wireless phone to not work.

You mean a wireless router might interfere with a cordless phone, right?

Whoaru99 is right on both. The only way you should have problems with DSL is if you don't use any filters. A wireless router can interfere with a 900Mhz phone but you should be able to change the frequency on the router to stop the problems.

I have had no problems with Panasonic brand cordless and we have both 900Mhz and 5.8Mhz and they both are very clear and seem to have good battery life.

I have a Panasonic now and I'm very happy.

Sony was a good phone also. I left the handset in the engine bay of my truck and went for a 2300 miles transport. When I got back (and found it) it was still working fine with no problem (a little beateb up). It couldn't reach the base when I was in South Carolina, but maybe it was too far.... grin

I worked at BB for a few years selling home electronics and the Panasonic and Sony were the nicest and most dependable.

whoa 99,

I didn't say I lost service. I said I lost the quality of the sound/tone. I know nothing about electronic's but I know that when I replaced my cordless phone with the Panasonic 5.8 it was like night and day.

Don't buy a Vtech. I have one that has the answering machine on it and when I try to record my answering message I sound like someone that's on downers and under water.

And I didn't say you did either.

I was just trying to clairify what you said.

If you have a wireless router it's possible your phone and wireless router weren't playing nicely.

Or, as someone mentioned, if you have DSL, maybe the line filters dropped the volume a bit.

5.8 and above are fine with wireless. I just went through this and found a very cool set of phones. I went with an AT&T DECT 6.0 set. They come in a three pack, you can use two at the same time, set different ring tones on them, intercom between them and the coolest feature of all is they have bluetooth on them. I paired my cell phone up to them so when I'm at home I can just set my phone down. If I get a cell call it rings to the home phone and can be answered by them. You can also make calls through your cell phone by pressing the cell key. They are cool for sure. I got them at Sam's for $90, way cheaper than other places I found them.

Those ATTs look pretty sweet.

I have Panasonic 5.8GHz that work pretty well. They're the version just before the DECT 6.0 stuff started being more available.

I have this very problem with my volume. It was frustrating not being able to hardly hear anyone. I have an older uniden cordless. I thought the battery was the problem, which it wasn't, then I thought the phone was just getting old (over 12 years). Now I know what to buy. My phone wasn't a 900 or 5.8 ghz.

I checked my phone and it was a 900 mhz. So I went and bought another analog uniden 5.8 and all is good now. I considered buying a digital phone, but I wanted to save some money.

    • Drumming at night.  Did you go after them with you burlap bag and flashlight? 
    • The more i research there seems to be a consensus that there is not a reasonably priced inline reel on the market worth the price tag.  Along those lines i dont recall too many of the guys making a living in the industry using them, even though a few promote them.  Think mr genz, he has his name on an inline but i dont recall any youtube footage of him using one.  
    • I was sleeping in the topper of my truck two weeks ago and it was *thump....... thump........thumpity thumpity* all night long.  Maybe it's the yearlings just figuring stuff out and finding themselves? Young males thinking they are all that?
    • This looks promising.  Usually have the little guys but a little more age in these two. 
    • I’ve heard drumming deep into the summer when I was out trout fishing. I thought that was a little odd. It’s one of the nicest sounds to come out of the woods though, so if they do it year round, I’ll take it!
    • Fall colors are now peaking in far northwestern Wisconsin and throughout the central part of the state including the Door County area, according to the Department of Tourism's Fall Color Report. Fall colors are now past peak in about a dozen north central counties and leaves are dropping rapidlyFall colors are now peaking in Door County. Photo from Oct. 19 from atop "Old Baldy" sand dune at Whtiefish Dunes State Park.Photo Credit: DNRMuch needed rain in the last week finally spurred on the fall Lake Michigan tributary salmon runs. The chinook spawn is going strong, with a variety of baits and methods seeing success. The chinook spawn is in full swing along Door County with salmon spotted in most marinas and in many area creeks. In the Kewaunee harbor, salmon can be seen jumping regularly and have been stacking up in corners in force and numbers, and anglers are having success with both spoons and crankbaits. Fish have been so thick at times that anglers have foul-hooked more than they have had strike. The salmon spawn is also in full force in the East and West Twin, Manitowoc, Branch and Ahnapee rivers. Chinook salmon are the most common catch but a few coho are also being caught. In southern tributaries, those fishing the Sheboygan River reported most of the success from chinook and coho salmon along with a few brown trout. At Sauk Creek a few chinook were landed on flies and spoons. On the Root River were chinook the majority of anglers targeting and seeing success upstream of the steelhead facility and fishing with egg flies. .
    • $2,750 it's in darn good condition as well.
    • How much for the old one?
    • Im from N.D. and guided for many yrs from Sask to Texas. And why anyone would go to N.D and hunt  waterfowl is a mystery to me. Canada has the best waterfowl hunting  I have ever seen. You only have to drive  500 miles more. There is no posted land and no hunters. Its a waterfowlers dream.   We averaged 69 Geese a day for 15 yrs plus I never counted the  Ducks  in the decoys in the mornings. In the evening clients would sit at a slough and shoot ducks while I found a field to hunt geese in the next morning.   Pretty good chance you would shoot more bird in one day than in N.D. in a week.
    • Fish thanks for the heads up, We have it planned for next week so at least I'll Miss the MEA weekend yahoos.
