      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 .

How to Dress for the Outdoors

Recommended Posts

Dressing in layers is the key to keeping warm in the winter and to keep from overheating in the summer. To adjust to temperature changes and varying activity levels, you simply add or remove clothing according.

In order to reduce chilling, long underwear, and other under garments are now being made of polyester type materials to remove moisture away from the skin.

Fleece is a good second layer for trapping your body's warmth.

Outer layers vary depending on conditions. But these wind resistance, water resistance outer layers should provide convenience and ease of movement.

Always be prepared with rain gear.

For maximum comfort and blister prevention, you should wear two layers of socks, a thin polyester sock liner with a thicker outer sock. Make sure to change your socks if they get wet and also at night before going to bed.

Quality footwear is important for any activity. They provide stability, warmth and comfort. Make sure that you waterproof your boots. If your feet hurt, you will not enjoy yourself. Period.

Hats are good for both warmth and sun protection. In cool weather, sleeping with a hat can provide the warmth you need. Up to 80% of your body heat can be lost through your head and neck.

Gloves protect your hands. Exposing your hands to extreme cold can quickly cause frostbite. Protecting your hands is also important while doing outdoor work.

Quality sunglasses are also necessary.
