      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 .

Switching a wall plug in radio to a battery?

Recommended Posts

I am wondering how and if I can switch a 6 volt radio that has a wall plug in, to a direct power supply of a 6 volt battery like a lucky duck battery? If so how can it be done? Thanks

Could be a pain. You'd have to find the regulator in the Power supply circuit. If you can figure out where that is, and there are numbers printed on the part you can google that number and usually find a datasheet showing pinout of the part. Then depending on what the output of the regulator is, you can solder the battery connector + to the input if the parts output is less than 6 V, or you can solder it to the output of the regulator if it is at 6V. My guess is it would go on the input. Then solder the battery connector - to Ground on the regulator. Probably not recommended for someone that doesn't have an electronics background, but it's doable. Wear safety glasses the first time you power it up and pray the majic smoke doesn't get let out. I personally would go buy a battery powered radio, and save the hassle.

GE SuperRadio is pretty good.

They're a little on the larger size, but not like a boom box. They have great reception, decent sound, and the 6 D-cell batteries last just about forever (also has AC plug for home use).
