      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 .

Hi folks,

My family and I just got back from our 3rd vacation from your beautiful area in the Black Hills. We've traveled from our home in northern Mn. to your area every other year to camp and do the tourist things as well as harvest pinecones. We have a wreathmaking business that we operate each fall here in Mn. and although we have an abundance of pine trees up here, none produce the size/shape of the Ponderosas that grow out there.

We've had a great time vacationing out there, but would like to head to Alaska for our next big trip. So, on the long ride back home we came up with an idea. I'm wondering if any of you living out there might be interested in gathering a LARGE quantity of pinecones for us and bringing them up to our home in northern Mn. 2 yrs from this fall. In exchange, we'd put you and 1 other up at our place for a 5-day bear hunt. I would gather all the bait, do the baiting and have stands set up prior to your arrival.

I'm an avid bear hunter and have also helped numerous friends and relatives get their bear. I am also a very ethical hunter and would expect the same from you. This area is also heaven as far as fishing is concerned and we'd spend non-hunting time on the water pursuing pretty much any kind of fish you'd want to catch.

If interested, post contact info and I will get back to you.

PEAT, I work on a golf course where were ponderosas pines and Austrian pines as well. I'll be more then glad to gather up some and just send em to ya, gratus. In out PTA (PTO) we used to make wreaths for fund raises. If you got a pic of what you are looking for send it to me ....GRNKPR@AOL.COM

Paul, I appreciate the thought. I'll drop you a line in the next day or so, but the shipping on the kind of quantity I'm looking for would be cost prohibitive. Perhaps someone you know or work with might be interested in my offer if you're not.Thanks again.
