      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 .

This site is an economy stimulator!!

Recommended Posts

Is it just me or is this site really really expensive to follow. I just stumbled upon this site before ice fishing this past season and am afraid to admit the money I have spent on ice fishing and now summer fishing as a result of reading all the posts on here. But I can tell you based upon the information I have learned on here I have bought a new ice house, new sonar, arctic armour, my first boat, a new graph for the boat, and those are the big ticket items not to mention all the new rods, reels and lures. (Lucky to be single too I guess ;)) I have always been an avid fisherman but something about this site gets me even more excited about fishing and wanting more and more equipment. My enjoyment of the sport has grown (if that was even possible) and I seem to catch a few more fish as well. I guess this is my way of saying thank you all for the great information that is shared on here and d a m n you all at the same time grin And I think the economy may owe this site a thank you as well. Good luck to all this weekend and be safe!

Agree with you completely. Between the money I've spent on new gear/toys and the amount of time I've "wasted" online, it's really unbelievable. The sad thing is, I'm not only like this with fishing, but golf too. Another expensive hobby when you're buying new clubs all the time. They're like fishing rods; the ones you have get the job done, but a new one will obviously catch more fish/lower your golf score, right? smile ha ha ha

It is the most fun marketing vehicle on the internet. smile

I love learning about new techniques and equipment from the best fisherman. It is a great community that really helps you become a better fisherman. But yes, it is very tempting to try and keep up with the Jones' around here.

I think Obama's people have infiltrated this site in order to stimulate the economy. Sinced he's been elected, I have spent $300 on fishing stuff I really didn't need.

Nobody really NEEDS the stuff. It's more of a desperate desire grin
