      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 .

How deep?

Recommended Posts

I just buried my 11 year old shorthair on Friday. I'd say the hole was about 2.5 feet deep. Bring tissues...the digging is the worst part.

That's about where we ended up. I was lucky enough to have a hill of pure sand so it wasn't hard, but a lot of work.

The worse part was watching Ang stand there crying and hoping no one would notice me doing the same.

Norm had a heaert murmur from birth. The vet told her he would only last 3-4 years and the breeder offered to take him back. That was out of the question after about the first 5 minutes she owned him. About the first of the year he filled up with fluid. The U cost over $1600 and really said other than a very expensive pacemaker there was nothing to be done. Meds worked for a while. On Friday he seemed OK when he was at my house, but he just collapsed and died early Saturday morning. It was really tough dealing with it as he was Ang's best friend.

The breeder quickly offered a replacement dog and I thought that was an incredibly generous offer. Ang is going to take some time off from dog ownership so she can pay off some bills. She's learned that even a free dog isn't really free.

I am so sorry for the loss. There is nothing I can say to make the loss easy. My dogs along with my Wife are my life. I am sure Norm was the same to you and Ang. I send my thoughts and prayers to you from one FMer to another. It is a sad time. Take Care Dave
