      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 .

Backyard Bluebird

Recommended Posts

I've been watching this guy for the past couple of weeks. It landed on a sheperds hook in my yard, the sun was good, I was able to sneak behind a tree, get the bird in focus, my memory card was full, deleted a couple of shots to make room, switch to JPEG, refocus, and I got a nice pix.

I've been fortunate to have bluebirds use my backyard for feeding in the 15 years I've lived in my home. Each year I look forward to seeing them. When the neighborhood was more open they would nest here. This was the closest I've been able to get with camera in hand. (XSi, 100-300,)

You are lucky to have the little guys in your yard & you've turned that into a very nice image - which was skill, not luck!

I've only rarely seen bluebirds, but we actually had one in our yard recently. I snapped a few pictures and they went into a file of images where the birds are so far away you have to hunt for them - and usually only I know what I've captured! smirk

Thanks for sharing!
