      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 .

El Nino

Recommended Posts

This cool weather pattern we are experiencing is said to be the cause of El Nino which brings the jet stream down here instead of mostly staying in Canada. As nice as the weather has been, I feel like overall angling is down.

I'm interested in others opinions of this trend and what was it like when this happened like 10 years ago? I really don't remember that far back.

It seems like its been cool compared to the last few years but I think its been average.

Fishing was a little slow early on for me, not sure if weather is to blame, the past few weeks have been pretty darn good to me though.

I'm not really sure about all the climate changes, maybe just nature...

If in doubt maybe give Al Gore a call !! LOL

I guess everyone has a different tolerance for hot and cold but for me this summer has been a let down so far. I like it hot. I wait 9 months for this weather. Turn up the broiler let's have some summer! I know it's weird but I like humidity too. Really! In fact, I don't trust any air I can't see. So bring it on! Winter's not far away. Let's have a "Cool Hand Luke" kind of summer. That's what I'm talking about!

I'm more tolerant of the heat since I've lost 30lbs smile

Still prefer the cooler weather though.

Thus far, I have no complaints. Yea, fishing has been a little off, but not terrible. The weather is what it is, we cant control it. Some like to think we can, but nature is always bigger than man.

If this were what passed for "Summer" every year, sign me up.
