      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 .

USB Ports

Recommended Posts

Bought a new scanning device that converts the 35mm slides taken years ago into a digital image you can load onto your computer. All went well until I hooked the device onto the computer. the screen prompt says I need a high speed USB port. I have several ports (front and back)and have tried them all. My computer runs on XP and is only a year old. What gives?

You probably need a USB 2.0 port. If yours are all USB 1 (older) then you can get a PCI card that is a USB 2.0 (or newer) version. About $20 maybe... Best Buy has them.

My iPod would do that every time I connected it to my old computer that didn't have a USB 2.0 system and I just had to acknowledge the pop-up balloon in the corner but it would still connect and work fine.

I missed the part about the PC being a year old. Pretty sure it's USB2 then. I'm with Surface Tension on this, check your drivers. You should have all you need.

Many of those kind of devices come with an install disk. And many of them requires that the software be install prior to attaching the device. Try that and then plug it in.

I have one of those same 35MM scanners like you mentioned and use it on a 5 year old (slow) PC. I also get that same message and I just ignor (or close) it and it works just fine every time.
