      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 .

A couple of mystery flowers

Recommended Posts

I went to WI. yesterday to shot a series on flyfishing the trico hatch. The hatch never really developed so I spent the morning wading through a dew soaked water meadow. I found these two flowers that I coundn't identify. Does anyone know what they are?

I would take a stab at wild bergamot on the top one if the serrated leaf is the one that goes with the plant. The frondier leaf looks more like starry false Solomon's seal. These are both guesses from what I have in the yard--not a botany nut (I mean that in a positive sense, I admire all of you and aspire to that ability some day.) The second looks a bit like the germander which was on the same page as bergamot when I went to my field book to check spelling.

That's a stab in the dark (which is known to better than a stab in the back.).

Sarah, you are correct the first one is a Bergamot. The second one I'm told is a plant called a "Heals_All". It is not native to North America and is used a great deal in folk medicine.
