      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 .

Just looking to supplement heat down in the basement and wondering about quality brands of freestanding fireplaces. Checked out Lopi with a local company but also wanted to check out some others. All told my budget is $3000.00 for fireplace and installation. Any help, tips would be appreciated.

Thanks,

BHS

A tip may be fireplaces accually lose more heat up the flue than other types of heat.when not in use interior air escapes up the flue,when in use they yet draw other interior air to feed fire,so in immediate area of fire its warm,but the chimney draft draws heat out of surrounding areas.

I had a Lopi installed at the cabin and couldn't be happier.

I would recomend getting a blower installed also, it really moves the hot air into the room. The stove seems very efficient, burns the wood to where there is hardly any ash to remove after 10 days of constant burning during the Wisconsin rifle season.

Just looking for a free standing stove. Just to compliment the furnace and be able to heat the house with that in the spring and fall when it is a little brisk out.

Thanks,

Lopi is a good product!!!!!! I build masonry fireplaces for a living and know that most sealed wood burning units do well for heat. Send me a email if you need to answera to more ?. bob at rglarson.com.

I used to have a Lopi in the first home I owned and heated the whole place with it for 4 years. Could stuff enough wood into it and damper it down enough that it would burn all day or all night with no problem ( with oak ). stove was still in great shape when I sold the home and they are still using it now 10 years later
