      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 .

Impulse Buying

Recommended Posts

papadarv



Did another impulse buy on favored rod/reel combo. Saw a great deal at WalMart $9.89 Celsius  rod South Bend 5.2:1 gear ratio bering drive reel adding to the 6 hanging in my non sleeper wheel house. Exciting buy. Cant wait to try it out on my walleye 4 day trip to Ottertail spending sleep time in my $35.00/night cabin. New rod purchase, rod rack and my sleep space in photos. Cost avoidance $23,949.00 Just does not get any better than this.

We have one of those. We never catch walleyes on it because we live where the eye population is slim, but it works great for panfish after owning it a long time.

Have you figured out why it has a bend in it? my only thought was more room for your hand with a glove on.

Better line alignment from reel to eyelet reducing friction and line ware.
