      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 .

Plumbing noise ?

Recommended Posts

I added some can lighting in my living room a couple weeks ago. I ran into a little problem cutting out the ceiling for one of the cans. There was a hot and cold water line that was in the way by about an 1" so I used a zip tie to pull the two pipes closer together to make room for the can. Now I hear a few clanking noises everytime the upstairs bathroom water is turned on(which is the same pipes I zip tied) and every once in a while a clank out of nowhwere. Is this any cause for problems? Why would it be making this noise?

Short answer, yes, this is something that can cause you trouble in the future. When you forced the pipes out of the way for the light, you may have loosened some of the hangers or supports that a plumber put in. The sounds you are hearing are probably the pipes rattling when you turn on or off a plumbing fixture quickly. Pipes aren't meant to be installed under pressure. When the zip ties break, the pipes will probably end up rubbing against the light. If you have copper to metal contact, generally the copper loses. Meaning it can develop holes in it due to electrolysis. Disimilar metals, huh, can't they all just get along? I think you are going to have to reroute the copper lines using a little copper and some fittings so it's not under tension. Hopefully you can get to the hangers that you might have loosened and refasten them.
