      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 .

Was your Memorial Weekend memorable?

Recommended Posts

Did everyone have a great weekend? Any fishing? I worked. 'Nuff said! smirkgrin

Jim and Dylan filled our backyard garden box (it's nice and big! I'll have to take some pics of it) with soil and we'll be planting those tomato plants soon in it. Jim also planted the rhubarb and asparagus.

I had a good weekend, small number of family members at the cabin and they all left Sunday. Went fishing with Char and Don on Sunday did not catch anything but had a good time and a great dinner.

Hope

Went to local lake Monday nite for 3 hours. Took my daughter and a neighbor. We had a blast. Caught and released 75 crappies in those 3 hours.

Got some yard work in. Washed a couple of vehicles and got 1 round of golf in.

Oh, it was memorable to say the least. Spent it hunting Turkeys in the Whitewater WMA. Came down with a nasty case of food poisoning Friday night and Saturday at the campgrounds . Did not get a Turkey either, hard to hunt them in the last seasons, but it was still all good in the end.

Did manage to call in a couple hens and a Coyote that was looking for an easy Turkey dinner. Imagine his suprise when I finally moved to let he know I was there. He was only 10 yards away or so with some brush and a small dried creek bed between me and him/her.

Had a little Buck check out my decoy as well, walked right up and brushed his nose up agains't it and ran away.

All and all a pretty good weekend other than the illness.

I had a good weekend, went fishing yesterday down on the Vermillion River south of Hasting. Did the usual, no fish.

Also went a 50th b-day party for one of my neices on Saturday nite. Had fun with the relatives and her friends, many of whom we have gotten to know over the years.

    • Bag 'em up and souse 'em!!!  
    • Great! To all the Coyotes and Wolves up in our hunting area.  I hope they all waste away!
    • The only problem we have had with the kdrill is today we had ice build up between the center point cutter and the first tooth on the chipper blades. Once I cleaned that out it drilled like day one. Don’t need any other auger. 
    • How much ice do you need to feel comfortable putting your perm shack out there? I have a 4x6 made from 2x4s and thick plywood. Its on the heavier side. Im thinking 7-8 inches.
    • All that smoke and spice to try and make pork belly edible.
