      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 .

Wedding Bonus

Shot a wedding yesterday and was finished after the "first dance". Headed for home and saw the first moose I've come across in over a year. It was about 9:15, but I had my 50D on the seat beside me with the 70-200 on it. Cranked it up to ISO 3200 and prayed. Here's what I got:

Oh, I love moose (mooses?) (moosi?) (meese?). And the lighting is great. Amazing. But in that first photo, he appears to be a moose of very little brain. Their heads never seem that small when you see them standing up to their knees in marsh. My preference is the second. Nice shots.

Ken was that down on Hwy. 21 between Ely and Babbitt?

I was coming back from a family portrait session in Pine City last night and went the back way through Biwabik and Embarrass and up 21 to Ely. I drove into town at 9 p.m. on the nose, and you ran into the mooster only 15 minutes later.

Sure you're not Irish? I've never heard of "the luck of the Finns." gringringrin

Yep. Right next to that old beaver flowage. Thought you knew that the Irish were our southern cousins - the luck 'o the Finns has been with us for a long time!

Can you imagine if Moose could stand on their hind legs like a human? Boy they'd be tall. Something about that first pic strikes me odd. Like some sort of woman in heels with fur shawl on or something.

And legs that go on forever. grin

I'll be in the Ely area wednesday nite thru friday morning. Hopefully I'll luck upon a moose, wolf or bear. Of course, I'm not going to be holding my breath. I'll be happy with Ladyslippers.

Way to go, Ken.

It almost looks like a second moose in the second picture to the left.

Nice shots
