      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Boat Battery Charging Questions - An Easy One

Recommended Posts

I relocated my trolling motor batteries so they were a little more centered in the boat - a project I've been wanting to tackle for quite some time - yesterday's weather gave me the opportunity to take care of it and not keep looking whistfully out the garage door. For context, I have 1 12 V battery (2 total) in each of the storage areas on either side of my front seat base. I moved them inboard which centered the weight more and freed up some storage area. That being said I now do not have access to the charging "post" of the "inside" terminal (pos on one side, neg of the other). I do have reasonable access to the actual "lug" the wires are connected to. My question, is there any reason I cannot clip the charger onto these "lugs" instead of the charging posts right next to them? I can't think of a good reason why not but I just want to make sure. Evenutually I want to get an onboard charger which will solve this "problem". Thanks for the help. Paul

Are you running 12 volts on your trolling motor? If so, I'd make a charging plug for your trolling motor plug - get an extra plug, strip the wires and connect your charger there... no digging under the deck.
