      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 .

Pishing Redstarts

Recommended Posts

I only had a little time to go down to the river and look for Warblers. Using no blind or wearing camo, I was able to pull four female Redstarts within photo distance. I did'nt realize this one answering me until I downloaded.

Nice Mike!...I agree that "pishing" really works at times!...Earlier this spring I "pished" expermentally when a small group of chickadees were in the branches close by...one actually tried to land on on my head or tripod and flared away at the last second....not exactly sure what pishing does to a bird ...either maybe a "fight" response or "curiousity" response but it does certainly work at times....not "all" the time of course...interesting behaviour...it makes a bird nervous for sure as you can see the birds nervously fluffing it's feathers and turning it's head side to side repeatedly in an excited way...

Interesting, I went out on the deck and pshht pshht pshht and a chikadee flew over right away to see what's up. I read a little about it on line. It also says to kiss the back of your hand few times. I've been whistling at birds for years but these 2 ways might even be better.
