      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 .

Spotted Coral Root

Recommended Posts

This unobtrusive orchid is difficult to find because it is small and blends so well into the duff it grows in. These plants are only about 8 inches high and the flowers are almost invisible until you put your nose right up to the plant.

Jonny,

These actually grow on high ground. Isn't a swamp around for several hundred feet. These have been growing in the same spot for over ten years, and it's high ground, partly shaded, lots of duff laying around. When I first saw them there years ago, I walked past them and thought they were the dead stalks of some other plant. I had just gotten interested in orchids and something told me to take a closer look. Glad I did. You really can't see their beauty until you are within inches of the plant. Good luck! Hope you find some!

Jonny, the spotted coralroot is a VERY common orchid. As Ken mentioned, it usually goes unnoticed because it is so short and unobtrusive. Look in drier sunny/semi sunny locations where you find large-leaved asters and ferns. It is occasionally found in wetter habitats. The stalks are very bright red. It will be blooming for another few weeks, so you have a good chance.
