      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 .

FL-18 hoopla

Recommended Posts

Another season is upon us and we have had 1 full season now to really see the FL-18 performed. I would like those that have one, to speak up and let us know why you either made a switch from a older vexilar or other model to the FL-18 or why you went with the FL-18 if you were buying brand new.
This should give some insights to those that are teetering on the idea of buying one or just wanting to hear more on the performance of the FL-18.

I first bought a Zercon Clearwater Classic. I love it and still have it, still use it. I then bought a Vexilar FL-8. Loved it but sold it to get the FL-18. I saw the two of them (8 & 18)side by side and just the difference in the display was enough to convince me I "needed to have it" !!
Since using the 18 last year, I can tell you that you will love that split screen display. Go for the FL-18, it is the best extra $100 bucks you will spend.

I've got a question. I am going to by an 18 in a couple weeks. I heard the rave reviews .5" target seperation, etc. When researching the specs on the 18 on Vexilars HSOforum I noticed something. They state target seperation of 2.65" and a target id of .5". Whats the difference between target id and target seperation? and why have I heard .5" target seperation and they state 2.65"? Any answers?

I too am not convinced on the 18. I have seen them and used them, but to spend the extra dough when I have a working 8.......

Here is a question for those out there that own one. If you got your 18 for free, would you still claim it that much better or worth tradin in for, "Hands down"??

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

Biggins: you had a run for your money it looks like last year. Looks like you lost out and you eventually did by the FL-18. The reasons are there and the performance will be outstanding. Can't wait to get out and use mine this winter.
