      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 .

Lunch Time Gold Finch

Recommended Posts

The boy has a pretty good grip on that feeder. I really like the color on the feet. Your camera must have picked up on that somewhat. It's interesting how people find something unique with each image.

Just put a new feeder up so I could try to get a better cardinal shot. The finches sure like it. They like the oil seeds better than the finch food! smile It's fun to watch them eat a seed with the binos.

I actually was surprised that they were eating the finch food at all. I've been using a 50 pound bag someone gave me out in the squirrel feeder (an old hauling sled) in the back of the yard. It has helped to keep the squirrels and grackels at bay. And the white throateds seem to like it, too. My goldfinches like the black sunnies and a thistle and sunflower chip combination. You are having fun with this, aren't you? That's great!

Yes I am having fun. smile I worked at a birdseed plant when I was in my early 20's back a lifetime ago. Been feeding birds all my life. I remember one time I took a 5 gallon bucket full of millet and made a big peace sign in the parking lot next to where we dumped the grain to be augered to the packaging plant. Probably about20 feet across. It only took about 15 minutes and it was covered with sparrows. Looked cool! Wish I would have had a camera back then. :>)

The plant closed down about 10 years ago and they do something else there now. It's 200 miles from here. Maybe I could do it in a Burger King parking lot with french fries and get a seagul peace sign. heehee
