      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 .

Can you have 2 different versions of office on one PC?

I recently ordered a laptop with Vista but had to get office 2002/XP for my work compatibility. Email doesn't work very good and is not supported on Vista. SO can one have a 2007 office product and a XP office product on the same PC?

The only product that would need to be backwards compatible is Access. Would 2007 save files as 2000/2002 for others to use on the XP enviornments?

I presume so.

I have Office 2003 full suite at work along with an Access 97 install for some old databases I work with.

Here at home, Access 2007 gives me the ability to save as Access 2007, Access 2002-2003, or Access 2000.

What I've found with the newer versions is that they may save as the older version, but some of the newer features may not be backwards compatible.

Also, you can download a patch for the older, but not too old, Office systems that allow you to open the Office 2007 stuff.

If i would just upgrade, that would be cheaper?

So if I got the regular 2007 upgrade with email, word, excel and what ever the basic comes with. Would that leave my Access alone during the upgrade from my proffessional 2002 version?

Just looking at the least expensive way to go about it.

Office 2007 is very different from 2003 and XP/2002. You will need to learn to do most everything over again, nothing is in the same places.

You can save your apps as older version, but if a feature wasn't there on the older app it won't be on the saved as version.

If you install a version of Office that doesn't have Access bundled in your old version will remain. We have done stuff similar in the past.

If your only issues is email and not calendaring, try the Thunderbird client from Mozilla. I have Outlook on my home PC but would rather use Thunderbird myself.
