      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

That's the exact number of Richardson ground squirrels I have managed to "live" trap around the home thus far this summer! The fact that I quit killing critters (large & small) years ago makes the task of live trapping a little more challenging than placing a chunk of lead behind an ear! grin


I decided that since I was relocating them away from our home after they were safely secured in the live trap, that I might as well take the camera along and fire off a few pic's after the release.

Sometimes they bolt for the sanctuary of tall grass and sometimes they stop to get their bearings. When they stop it's time for a quick pic or two!

Stu, totally cute lil thirteen-lined ground squirrel. Tack sharp, nicely lit! To where do you relocate these guys?

Thanks Steve! As for relocation, just down the road! Our driveway is a 1/4 mile long and the road leading to our home is gravel with a deep drainage ditch that runs along the west side of the road. Very little vehicle traffic out our way, however there are plenty of hawks who in turn probably appreciate my efforts! wink
