      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 .

I got lucky one two fronts. It was a very foggy morning. That may be why they were out in the open. It also let my camera make a better exposed image.

This photo recently took third place in the nature catagory at the Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge contest. First place was called Muskrat Munchies (it actually was a beaver) and was a cool closeup of one eating a lily pad. Second place was the same group of swans that I had shot, but it was a week or two later (the young ones were bigger) and shot in bright sunlight. I kind of liked mine better due to more detail in the birds becasue of the fog (better exposure). You never know what judges are going to like. I was still happy that one of my shots got something. It was really the first time I had entered a contest.

Last weekend we were up north and the lake we camped on had a family of swans for the 2nd summer in a row. Tried to get some pics but we might have been a few days late. Cool pic!!!

They don't look like "ugly ducklings" to me. All the swans I see around here have ugly bright colored bands around their necks. These make for MUCH better photos.
