      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 .

Name your bow???

Recommended Posts

How many people out there name their bow? I've named all of my bows- a few were named Joey, Golden Boy, The Picklefork, and my newest bow is named Titus. Just curious if I'm the only crazy one or if some of you out there give your bow a name?

Over the weekend I named my two week old 3 piece takedown Longbow "Ka-Boom" because that's the noise it made when the riser broke in half when I drew it back!!!

Now it's a four piece bow;(

Luckily no one, particularly me, was hurt. But what an awful sound.

That happened to me about 20 years ago when my York recurve snapped on me...but I named that one "#@% Dam-It"...'cause that's what I said when the upper limb smacked me right in the mouth!

My bow does not have a name but my name lee harvey came from some other hunters who call me that when I have my bow in my hands.

They believe that I hit everything I shoot at but I have missed a time or two.

We just don't tell them that.

I hear ya, I bit my lip as to not cuss out loud as my buddies 5 year old Son was standing right next to me. He thought it was the funniest thing that it snapped in half, talk about adding insult to injury!!!

Thankfully the guy that built it has a great warranty, his daughter was at the shoot later, brought the bow back to her dad that same day and he is getting a new bow built up right away.

Never know what wood is going to do. My lesson learned was I will be bringing a backup bow to Colorado for Elk this fall, just in case.
