      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 .

I stalked this beauty.

Recommended Posts

My intention this morning was to try and call in hawks. However, I never saw a hawk anywhere, which was unusual for this area. Instead, I walked down a trail leading to a small slough, and found this fella fishing. I was wearing my ghillie suit and would take a few slow steps and then stop for awhile. I could tell he knew something was amiss. It was only after he heard the shutter click a couple times that he decided he wasn't totally safe. However, instead of flying away, he flew right past me. I would have had a couple better shots, but didn't pull the zoom back fast enough and clipped a little of the wing. I could have repaired the wing, but instead decided to take my punishment like a man. whistle

The ghillie suit really works. It's nice to not have to crop out 50%, while trying to keep things sharp.

Sue - I'll give my left arm to get shots like these.

Stupid question and I could probably look it up, but what is a ghillie suit?

Thanks, all.

Debbie, if you google all predators, you'll find their HSOforum, and then do a search for ghillie. It's the new rage. Soon, everyone will be wearing them. grin

X, those are great shots and I liked the last the best! The only thing I want to know is how hot is the Gillie suit? I went down to the river bottom today and got run out of the woods from GNAT'S. It was'nt pretty.

Mike, I've worn this suit just once, when it was a bit over 50 degrees. I may test it again in the morning. I don't think it will be that bad, but wouldn't want to wear it in 85 plus degree heat.
