      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 .

Not a Gull person Need help

Recommended Posts

I found these gull's in a muddy bean field. I do most of my shooting on the river and river bottoms, so I don't run into these very often. I did do some minor research and the one species that comes to me is a Franklin's Gull, but I'll refer to the experts.

These are not good images. The weather was cloudy, misting, and foggy. I got to use some excuse for my bad photography.

These appear to be a Franklin’s Gull. Someone else with more experience in gulls may chime in and say something different though.

It fits all the characteristics of a Franklin's gull according to my Sibley's. Very pretty with the black hood.

We typically get the Ring-billed Gull picking in the fields each spring and fall. Nice to see something different!

I believe these are Northern Black headed Bean Gulls. This breed is responsible for the highest percentage of methane in the Avian world. Not to be confused with the Solitary Stinker-another bean eating shore bird.

It's possible I may be wrong-again.
