      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 .

Thanks for the warm welcome! Glad to be a part of the community! This HSOforum has already generated a fair amount of traffic and sales. Today, we're shipping leeches to 5 different states - just 3 weeks after launching Jewell Outdoors!

Thanks again - and tell your friends!

I have to say - the combo of sponsoring here on HotSpotOutdoors, plus joining the conversation in the forum has driven lots of early traffic to my site. We rocketed to 1200 unique visits in the first three weeks, and just today (may 14th) we are on the first page of google searches for live fishing leeches. Thanks so much!

We're constantly searching for new products to offer - if you have suggestions, email mark@jewelloutdoors.com

Things continue to go well with the new HSOforum. In the first month we have been open for business online our traffic and sales have exceeded my expectations greatly! Recession Leeches are our most popular and cost effective item. Night Crawlers have been selling well also.

We are already in the planning stage for adding quite a few additional products including jigs, lures, other tackle, electronics, hunting, camping gear, and more. HotSpotOutdoors has attributed at least 70% of our site visits. I find that the combination of sponsorship and forum participation are extremely valuable.

Good to see a 1st class business added as a sponsor! I ordered 5 dozen leeches and they were fantastic!!! I look forward to doing business in the future with them.

By the way mark, this is Greg in Nebraska!

Greg - thanks for the feedback on here! Glad the 5 pounds we sent go there safe and sound. It sounds like they worked well for you.

I need to get some photos of your jigs - and see if we can't strike a partnership to offer them in our updated online store. Should be live soon!

I ordered 2 pounds of jumbo leeches from Mark. Family problems changed my plans many times, which meant I continuously changed the date I needed the leeches shipped. Mark was always there telling me the leeches would be here when I needed them. He is a real class act--full of cutsomer service. Prompt replies from e-mails sent, delivery when I wanted, and a great looking bunch of leeches. I definitely will order from them again and again. It is not easy to find an establishment that values costumer service--Jewell Outdoors really does!!! They will go a long way with attitudes and products like they have.

THANKS again Mark!!!
