      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 .

Hey guys. Six of us are heading to stay in a sleeper out of Zippel. Given the forcasted wind chill into the 40s below, any tips for my truck and making sure it will start in the morning?

To anyone else who will be out there this weekend - Stay Warm!!!!

A pan of charcoal under the oil pan in the morning.

Well you light it on fire, and it warms your oil.

Use common sense so you don't burn your truck up.

Another tip for when it's brutally cold out is to bring your battery in, and keep it warm.

Or you can always start it through the night every few hours.

When it's going to be this cold, I don't know if it matters, but I always park with the front of the truck away from the wind. Good Luck, the people at Zipple are great, and I bet that they will check on you.

Hey fisherman50 I'll be up in Zipple on Sunday and Monday night also out of a sleeper. My dad and 2 boys will be with me. My dad has one of those portable chargers that work real slick to jump start a vehicle if the battery dies. I would imagine that the resort could help you out too. I think they check on you in the am and pm so maybe you could get a jump from one of the bombadears if need be? Good luck! Maybe one of us will end up pulling the other off of the ice? smile.gif
