      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 .

Planting Basil

Recommended Posts

Iv'e grown Basil in my garden for years. Seeds are tiny so I put a pencil in the ground and put 6 seeds around it. Thin out leaving the strongest two plants. Beware the 1st cold night in the fall it will turn black and be worthless. I pull the plants up root and all and hang them in the basement to use all winter. Good Luck DrJ.

I've done basil in pots with a lot of success over the years. Its about as simple as it gets. Just follow the instructions on the seed packet and then thin out the plants after germination. I've done as many as 6-8 plants in a planter before and it worked well. I usually leave several inches between plants.

They seem to like it hot and sunny so put it somewhere that it will get lots of sun and warmth.

Drying the basil in the fall is a good option, you can also pull the leaves and freeze them. Either way works well.

I have left my basil plants in the pots past the first frost and it seems like the birds really like them so if you want to attract birds maybe consider leaving it.

I have planted basil for several years. We use it to make Pesto. I've had the best luck starting the seeds inside in small pots, then transplanting them into the garden after they are a few inches tall. I space the plants about 1 foot apart, as they get pretty big and bushy by late summer.
