      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 .

WAY off topic....Invisalign (plastic braces)

Recommended Posts

Couldn't think of a better place that FM to ask this grin

It looks like a few of my upper teeth are slowly moving in ways they shouldn't be and I might need to do something to stop and reverse it. I figure the sooner the better, but I don't know if I could handle braces.

Has anyone ever used or know of anyone who's used Invisalign?? I haven't heard about it for a while, but it sure seems like it would a lot more convenient that metal braces. Thanks for any info!

From what I know you may get acceptable results but to get things right the first time (for sure) real braces are the way to go.

Being you are in I'Falls you will want to check around and go with someone who is trained and experienced in working with them. You may have to travel some distance to achieve that. I would stay away from the dentist who went to weekend courses to learn about it and does a couple cases a year. Talk to a reputable orthodontist (college trained), not an orthodentist (dental profession term for a practicing general dentist who learned orthodontia doing weekend classes).

thedeadsea,

Thanks for the reply. I actually made a call to Bemidji to set up an appointment with a real orthodontist. I'm hoping to just get looked at to see if it's an option. I don't think it'll take very much or very long to set things right, that's why I'm considering the Invisalign over conventional braces.

I would think if your teeth haven't moved much that invisalign would work okay. Not sure if you can wear the Invisalign as a retainer after they are straight, but it sounds like you might need something long term to keep them in place.

I've had my braces off for a couple years now and still wear a retainer every other night. It's crazy how fast those teeth can shift!
