      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 .

LED lighting

I have been using a rv incandesent bulb in a clamp light in my portable. Is there some type of LED that will fit into this socket ???

they do make them, but they are kind of spendy. They do put out a lot of light with low wattage though. probably worth the investment. Otherwise, I'd invest in some of the "superbrightleds" wink.gif from hong kong that other FMers have ordered online.

THere is a clamp on LED light you can buy (they have it at 2 stores here in DL) that put's out some light. On the big auction website do a search for "ufo led" and you will find some inexpesive suacer shaped lights with up to 60 led's in them that have magnets or you can hang from your portable. Up to 50 hours on 4 double a's.

I use the rope lights in my house I got from a local "store" and am not happy with the amount of light it gives off. I think I need to add dome other 12 volt lighting.

Oh well.

I have some LED string lights as well, actually 2 6 foot pieces in my portable. The lighting is good, but I think the reflectix helps quite a bit. One thing I do not like is that the wire sheath on them cracks and the copper is exposed. I have had a couple meltdowns where the two bare wires touch while the leads are attached to the battery. I'll need to find a way to fix it permanently. Hit, I have used some 12V flourescent lighting that puts out more light than the LED's, may be an idea. If you are talking about the permanent, LED lighting is way to dim; incandescent is the only way you'll get enough light.
