      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 .

Remote Control

I know there outfits available for lots of $. Has anyone home built their own remote control for a kicker motor? What about throttle control?

Hiya,
Don't know very mcuh about steering systems, other than the TR-1 seems to be the one to get, but as far as throttle controls, check out the Troll Master - it's a slick deal. A rheostat-type dial on a cable connects to your throttle cable, and you just turn a dial to adjust the speed. On some models you also can just hit a button to go to idle or either 3/4 or full throttle (I forget which it is).

Thorne Brothers carries them. They're pretty cool.

Cheers,
RK

Hey Val,
No particular brand. I just knew they existed (but out of my pocket book) so wondering if guys ever built their own. Maybe they're cheaper than I thought? I built my own steering arm. Pretty cheap at first but I came up with a way better design this year. Bushings and machining cost more though.

I am asking which brand since I have several broken or missing parts remote controls, I'll be glad to sell them for very few bucks (we are talking $ 5 or so).
If you can come and look, it might be helpful.
