      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 .

Ticks?

Recommended Posts

anyone notice that they seem to be out in full force?

More so then later years. They normally hate me and wont come close, but this year they are loving me. None stuck in, but climbing on my legs.

I would say it's worst this year. I've seen ticks in wooded areas i haven't seen all my life there. Just read an articitle yesterday stating tick population has increase and moved further across MN.

Is there a spray you can use to rid your property of ticks? It seems to me I once read an article that there was something you could use. But I am not for sure, it might have just been a pipe dream after picking 2 dozen ticks off the dog one night. Frontline wasn't working for me, I switched to k-9 advantix, not much better for ticks, but it sure keeps the mosquito's off.

I think the cheap stuff they sell at wal-mart works just as good as frontline... IMO...

I hate ticks. I will avoid the deep woods/grass until Late summer. There seems to be less then. My dad almost died last year from a woodtick bite. He got a disease called Urlickia (sp). It is similar to lyme disease. We thought he had a stroke until mom remembered the woodtick bite from a month previous. Scary stuff.......

I am using Sergeant's gold right now seems to do the best job of all that I have tried over the years... I tried the collar I think it was a hertz, that was useless, I found ticks on his neck right where the collar was.. Now if they invented something to keep my dog away from skunks I'd be real happy LOL... Besides a fence or kennel

I haven't put any Frontline on either of my dogs and they haven't had one tick yet this year. We have a small woods and tall grass in the back yard. Can't figure this out. Not one tick.

In the times I've been out turkey hunting this year, I've only had 2. But I usually spray my pant legs to the point of being soaked with tick repellent.
