      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 .

Seat Pedestal Repair

Recommended Posts

I have a Swivel Eze seat pedestal. One that can be adjusted for height by hitting a lever and the seat raises up and lowered by sitting on the seat and holding the lever. Bass guys would call it Pro-Pole. The guy that had it before me managed to put the thing together upside down (adjustable end down) and now it does not work.

My question, is there anything I can do with this pedestal to refurbish it? I have no idea if they are filled with hydaulic fluid or they are pneumatic.

Anyone have any ideas? Or, do I need to provide additional details.

I believe they are air pistons, not gas or oil, but I could be wrong.

Did you check if the lever operates correctly ? Many times the only problem is the lever not lifting the small screw inside that opens the valve.

Valv,

I took the seat off the top. There's no pressure left in it. The screw on top is down, so basically it is already "pressed down." I suppose "pressed down" alows air to escape and lower the seat. Are these things pre-filled with air, do they have a spring inside to aid in raising the seat. I have no clue as to how they operate.

I would try backing off on the screw and see if that improves the situation, or gives you some adjustment. I presume it's fully extended right now?

Fixed it. It was simply jammed in the down position. A little WD-40, a heavy cable tied to the hitch on my truck and thread through the top of the pole, and one really hard pull made things right. I would say my pickup is now the largest tool I own. grin
