      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 .

Lawn sweeper

Recommended Posts

I have been thinking about buying a lawn sweeper, but I'm just leary on how good they work. I've got oaks on one half of the yard and a lot of pines on the other half. Will they pick up the needles? The oak leaves get pretty thick sometimes, do the sweepers clog up? Is there any particular brand that is better, or one that I should avoid. I have only looked at the ones at Mills Fleet, Agri-Fab and Swisher were the brands I think they had.

Shame,

I have mostly pines and the sweeper works pretty good, you just have to go over it a couple of times. Beats the heck out of racking.

I have the Agri-fab that I bought used from my old boss.

Good Luck,

Mike

We have had an agri-fab as well for a couple years and we have mostly oaks and aspen leaves. It doesnt work too bad behind the four wheeler after you figure out the right speed. You go too slow and it it doesnt pick up and go too fast and everything flys over the "catch bin" Worth the money and saves your arms from rakeing.

My buddy just bought one and we found it's best to use a pull behind dethatcher (the one with all the tines) while mowing first. Then go over with the sweeper. The sweeper wasn't getting close enough and those needles were buried thick.
