      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 .

Headlight upgrade?

Recommended Posts

I upgraded my old Explorer to the Silverstars and they definitely helped. Its not like going to Xenon's, but its better than nothing.

I have heard that if you buy the imitations they can cause problems.

Silverstar Ultras will make a difference, with out any negative effect. The problems are when you start putting in higher watt bulbs, then you get into melted wires, connectors, switches, ect... One other thing is make sure your lenses are clean, and not faded.

I swapped my stock bulbs out in my GMC Sierra for Silverstars and then swapped my high beams for Silverstar Ultras.

I had a burned out bulb when I did the low beams and they were out of the Ultras so I just went with the regular Silverstars at that point. I was so impressed I then did my high beams with the Ultras which are incredible.

Money well spent IMO.

If you do upgrade please.... please for the sake of others coming towards you, have them ALIGNED after installing them! Many times, a headlight adjustment alone will make a huge improvement on your visibility. There are a lot of muttonheads wink out there that put them in just to "look neat" with no regard for the blinding of oncoming traffic. Without aiming them properly, they may well be just as ineffective as the originals.

Exactly, they are not higher wattage but still will make a difference. Dont touch the glass putting them in and make sure the connector fits snug.
