      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 .

Hummers in the yard

Recommended Posts

The hummingbirds are back in force, of course. I've been busier than a male hummer chasing others off territory this last week, with two more weeks booked up almost solid, which explains my intermittent presence on the boards.

The first image is from the archives and may seem familiar to some of you, though it's not one I've posted before. A discerning birder will be able to tell why it couldn't have been captured this early in the season. wink

The second image is from today.

Canon 1D Mk2n, Canon 600 f4L IS, iso320, 1/1250 @ f4, tripod


Canon 1D Mk3, Canon 70-200 f2.8L IS, Canon 1.4 TC, iso800, 1/5000 @ f4, handheld

Glad to hear business is good!

I like the contrast on the 2nd. If they were a game bird,how many do you suppose it would take to fill up a hungry hunter? grin

Thanks guys. The light wasn't the best, but I really wanted to get the gear dialed in before the exhausting four-day shoot starts tomorrow (whew, I'm not 20 anymore, I know!) winkwink

I'm thinking four-and-twenty hummingbirds baked in a pie wouldn't satisfy anything bigger than an alley cat. So, if a hungry hunter is a human hunter, I figure it would take 438,442. gringrin

Wow, that would be a lot of feathers to pluck. wink

Cool backgrounds on these little buggers. It really makes them stand out.
