      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 Everyone, I was asked by the Hutchinson Convention and Visitors Bureau to teach a class about travel photography to a group of visiting Good Sams. I gladly said yes and now I have to come up with a class to teach. Luckily it's only 1/2 hour long. Just looking for any ideas folks might have to make vacation and travel photographs better. I'll be going over things like composition, camera settings and some minor technical stuff.

If you have any other ideas, please feel free to share. I'm very excited and quite a bit nervous,but most of all very flattered to be asked to do this by a longtime professional photographer, who happens to be the Chamber President.

One simple tip that I remember made a lot of my travel photos be more valuable was to include family members, friends etc. as part of a scenic. Posed is okay, but candid is even better IMHO.

Congrats Mike! I agree with finnbay, having family/friends in pictures are the ones used to reminisce about the trip as they have more storytelling appeal. Good luck!

Photography can by such a fun part of the vacation activity. But it can also become very intoxicating. I would remind them that their photographs will be a wonderful reminder of a traveling experience, but that they should not let the camera come between them and the actual experience itself. Sometimes in madly setting up equipment, trying different settings to get the right effect, checking histos to 'capture' the moment, we learn the hard way that some moments are not to be captured. They are to be shared for a moment, and the only one who didn't get to share in it was you. Sometimes what is in the mind's eye is the better memory.

Thanks Everyone! Those are great tips. Sarah, I agree with you wholeheartedly! I sometimes do that and have to really check myself to be sure that I'm not missing a great moment with my family.

Thanks again and keep them coming!
