      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 .

Snippets from our family vacation

Recommended Posts

The only processing done on these is resizing...

My family spent the past week at a small lake near Battle Lake. For the first few days, all 19 were there. We had beautiful weather, great conversations, and a ton of fun.

The sunsets were spectacular all week. Here are three of my favorites:




Everybody loves a parade! The tradition on Lake Ethel is to have a boat parade on July 4th. What a fun way to celebrate!


Hubby had a little fun


Did a little fishing (only fish I caught in the two trips out in the boat)


And watched the loons as they circled the boat

Congrats on the huge pike also. smile

Sadly, that is the average size pike that I catch from this lake every year. Usually the bass bite is decent, but not this year! frown

You are within 10 miles of our family cabin! Never a shortage of beautiful sunsets which you have captured!

All nineteen???

There are five kids in my family, four of us are married, three of us have three kids each. Dad passed away almost five years ago, but mom is still here. That makes 19. My two brothers were both on the east coast, so this last week was only the 2nd time we have all been together since my dad's funeral. We can all pick up right where we left off, though. We are a pretty tight family.
