      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 .

Lining inside of house

Recommended Posts

I have an old 4x7 that I am breathing new life into. It's aluminum on the outside and foam-lined inside with slate around the walls near the wood stove as a heat barrier. The foam has some sort of fiberglass mesh covering that was tacked over it (flexible, plastic-like) that was painted black, but it's all cracked and chipped and paint is flaking terribly. For that reason, I don't care to repaint it, but I want to restore the all black interior. What are my "lining" options? Black plastic? A friend of mine did that and it seemed to work well. Tar paper? Would this be safe if heated or not? In either case it wouldn't go up very close to the stove, but I can still get the heat rocking with the wood stove and I'm too naive to know if heated tar paper releases any toxins? Other options? Must be cheap, lightweight, and safe. Thanks in advance, guys.

Black plastic might condensate and tar paper may get to smelly when hot , I think I would try some of the landscaping fabric ,the kind that you put under the rocks so weeds don't grow threw. 2c

cheap, lightweight, and safe....goodluck.

If safe includes fire proof it gets tough. I've never tried lighting old dried out landscape fabric on fire, so don't know how that goes, but I am just gonna assume it goes up in flames just like everything else cheap and lightweight. I use tin behind my wood stove and have used black fabric stapled to the walls.

I don't mean safe as in "fire proof"...just safe as in "when it gets hot in the fish house it doesn't turn the wall covering to toxic fumes." I have plenty of fireproof wall coverage behind the stove.
