      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 .

Solar Battery Chargers

Recommended Posts

I was thinking about puting one of those solar chargers on my boat lift battery as I have to juice out on the dock. I see them for various prices $35 to $135. What should I look for.?

I tried one on my fish house a couple of years ago. I thought it would work so I picked one up for about $115. Hooked it up and it did not seem to keep up -- the battery would not stay charged.

I would think it would work better in the summer when the sun is out more often.

Word of warning -- I don't have thew solar charger anymore -- It was a magnet for fish house robbers. I was broken into that year and they took the solar charger -- good for them because the dumb thing didn't work anyway.

Good luck.

For a trickle charge/battery maintainer I think solar will work good at reasonable cost.

For more steady use/higher-demand applications, the cost for enough solar power to keep up with the demand goes up considerably.

A 15W panel is roughly 1 amp output (considering full sunlight, I assume) which IMO is a strong trickle charge.
