      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 .

iPhone Hacked

Recommended Posts

There is a recent report saying that someone has discovered how to hack the popular iPhone. Doesn't matter which model, old or new, they are potentially vulnerable to a simple text message that may allow the hacker to take control of the device.

iPhone owners are instructed to power down the device ASAP if they notice something strange with a recent text message.

They are then urged to head to their nearest AT&T store and exchange it for a Blackberry which is renowned for their Fort Knox-like security. grin

(This probably should/could have been posted in the equipment forum as well as a heads-up to iPhone users.)

ANY phone with data (i.e. internet) possibilities can be hacked (that makes just about all of them since 2007). You roll the dice with everything internet related. You just have to think what your odds are. And the odds of YOUR phone getting hacked are two: Slim and none with Slim on a fast horse out of town. Don't sweat it.

Apple addressed the specific security hole in the OS. It was presented to Apple by a group that attempts to find these weaknesses in programs in order to inform the manufacturers of the problem. Apple addressed it very quickly once it was made public. They do not believe that any iPhone was actually affected by this.
