      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 .

My family LOVES this stuff - note the CHEAP ingredients

1-2 lb. Ground Beef (we use sirloin)

taco seasoning mix

2 cans Bush's hot chili beans (they are not hot)

ranch dressing


lettuce (we use romaine)

shredded cheese

Nacho Cheese Doritos

Cook the taco meat

Drain the beans (don't wash them though)

In a BIG bowl mix: meat, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, ranch dressing (how much is up to you)

Crunch up the Doritos into pieces about 1/2 as big as they are in the bag

Doritos in a bowl

Spoon the mix on top

Cheese next

Mix and enjoy




Let me know what ya think when you try it! grin

We do something very similar except we don't use taco seasoning on the meat and western dressing rather than ranch. We call it sweet taco salad. Last time we made it we added diced up avacado as well. Yum!

In college, our buddy used to make taco salad like this when we'd get back from the bar. I suppose the only difference is dressing versus mayonnaise. It's all good though and does the same job. Nice post.

Pretty similar version with a couple of exceptions:

-meat always with taco seasoning

-Western or Catalina dressing (try both and decide which you prefer---we have an argument at our house but both are good)

-Taco flavored Dorito's

-usually do some form of beans (wife doesn't care for kidney beans so it depends on who is eating)

-wife wants black olives

-usually buy pre-cut lettuce for simplicity

-anything else you like on your tacos add it (I've got to add the the avocado next time as suggested!)

Made the mistake of bringing this to work one time on a treat day now I get bugged every time it is my turn for treats that it needs to be made for the group.

The group doesn't realize that my hamburger is heavy ground venison with some ground beef so I've got folks eating venison that don't have a clue.

I like the original recipe, I'll have to try that.

Try plopping all that stuff on a pizza! Thats one of my favorite homemade pizzas, minus the doritos and add a few jalopenos also. cool

I make a mean taco pizza that my family loves.

Make or buy your crust. Top with Refride beans, chopped onion and cheese and pop it in a 425 degree oven for 10-13 minutes.

While pizza is in the oven, chop up lettuce and break up Dorito Taco chips. (additional items you can chip to put on would be olives, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, you get the idea).

Take pizza out of oven, top with lettuce, your choice of other toppings, cheese and taco chips. Searve with salsa to put on top.
