      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 .

Camping Games for the family.

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any Ideas of any games/activities for a family to enjoy while camping. I know there are alot of games that you can buy and We have a few of them. I was just wondering what (Other then fishing, sitting around the camp site, biking) do most people do when they camp. Not saying I don't enjoy these things I was just looking for other ideas.

I camp mostly in the BWCA so weight and bulk is an issue. We usually bring a deck or two of cards, paper and pens to keep track of scores, Yahtzee minus the box it comes in and some craft stuff my daughter is into. She's ten so it's a bit easier to entertain her than a two or three year old.

We read a lot:) I come from a big family of readers, and even though the kids aren't big video/computer users at home, it's nice to get them away from all things electronic and see them with thier nose in a book:)

I had some drop-offs from deck posts, so I squared them up, took a black marker and made "dice" out of them. We found an old hula hoop to use as a target to role them into.

So many great ideas. Just to let you know we went camping over the 4th and had a blast thanks to you guys on here. We Did bring a frisby and Yahtzee. I made a little box and we had some bean bags to throw at a hole in the top of the box. We also had a few on the fly games that I looked up on the net.

one thats an easy one is a Baseball and gloves.. We had a blast playing catch.

Another is an old Bike tire inertube and a couple stakes in the ground a few feet apart,(With a Three year old and Five year old they were about 15 ft apart. play kind of like hourse shoes.

one things for sure. you guys helped us to have alot of fun things to do during our camping trip weather rain or shine. Thanks again.
