      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 .

Anybody know what this one is? Measures 13 x 5 x 3-4" thick but appears to have been part of a larger rock. Sent in by Neangler (Nebraska) Very nice looking colors tho.

Thanks for posting this up for me, not too computer savy. If it is glass would it be man made then?

On a side note, we found a old guy that lives by us that is a rock collector, small time seller. He has lots of petrified wood from a National forest in AZ that he said his mom collected when he was a kid(he's 85), lots of Agates,fossils, geodes,etc and my daughter bought a stalagtite(SP?) for $25 that he found in a cave when he was a boy and he cut it in half and polished it - really neat. My question is would buying some of the more rare rocks be worth the investment? His wife has died and is all alone so we go over and talk to him every once in awhile and sells us stuff pretty cheap - his prices are pretty low to begin with but I thought for my daughter to ccllect something and be worth something in the process would be a good. New to the rock arena so not sure values, etc. Thanks for your guys help.
