      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 .

Pink slippers

Recommended Posts

Nice work with the new tool, Dave. Sweet showy ladyslippers! And blooming early, unless you found them south a good ways. Up here in the locations I shoot, ours don't usually bloom until the end of June and into early July.

Mike, no showy ladyslippers down your way, but the small white ladyslipper, a gorgeous pure white ladyslipper, is a prairie flower and occurs in your area.

Steve, Do the pink and the showy bloom around the same time? I am heading up norht to look for the Pinks, around Danbury Wisconsin, sometime soon.

I found these about 65 miles west of the cities.

Dave, if you want pinks in northern Wisconsin the time is now. I found prime pinks a week ago up here, with many not yet prime at that time. They'll be popping off somewhat earlier down by Danbury.

For my pink locations, the first two weekends of June are typically prime. July 4th weekend is generally prime up here for showy ladyslippers.

Dave - I found 1 pink slipper the weekend of June 5. We went as far south as Gooseberry and as far north as Magnus and found just the one in Tettegouche in our campsite. Good luck on finding more. Also, I'm not able to send you an email, but I'd like to get more info on where you found this if you don't mind. I understand if you want to keep the location secret.

Debbie, I went tonight to check them and the rain took its toll. They are already starting to turn brown and they are torn up a little.
