      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Robin's Nest

Recommended Posts

Here are some photos of a Robin's Nest just outside my kitchen window. Sunday April 10th there were 2 eggs; Monday a 3rd, and Tuesday a 4th. Once they hatch I'll try to get a quick shot each day when she's away.




Sad to say, Friday afternoon all 4 eggs were gone. Lots of Grackles in the yard....I wonder if they had a feast?

Kind of wondering if Momma could have moved them???

That will be a nice photo journal. I'll be watching for them. I have a mama robin sitting on a nest down the street that is well below eye level. I have to check on her progress every time I walk the dog past. But last night right at dusk there were two feral cats sitting a few yards away. I was afraid they were waiting for mama to leave, or waiting for dark to take mama on. I sicced the dog on them. Sorry cat lovers. smile (Sheepish grin.) She seemed to be surviving just fine this morning.

I was looking forward to posting more pictures....

Very sad to say the eggs are all gone.

Sarah....Just how far did you chase those cats!?

Actually, there are a lot of Grackles around so I wonder if they helped themselves?
