      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 .

Do any of you do this? Or any recipe organizing suggestions?

Recommended Posts

I started a word document of all of the recipes I want to try from this site or others.

Do you have any online sites/programs that are easy to use to keep recipes together?

Hoggs you are way too efficient for me grin I will copy and paste them in to a folder called recipes. Now what I really need to do is take all the recipes that I have cut out of the paper that are in a three ring binder and scan those into a computer. Some day when I get that elusive Round-to-it wink

I downloaded a free program called Recipes 3000. It's real good and keeps them very organized. I also did the word docs and had a Recipe folder and then broke that down into different types.

The good ones, I download into my Brain. The rest of them are either on a USB drive (even the small ones hold a ton) or I keep them in a three-ring.

There is one out there that I have seen a few use, it's called Living Cookbook 2009, seems pretty good, you can try it for 30 days, it will also bust nutritional info for you too. If you find a good recipe on the web, simply copy and paste it and your done, it's in the system.

Hoggs222, I print the recipes that appeal to me and put them into a 3 ring binder. Then I can grocery shop and take recipe and the goods out into the perm while Icefishing, in between bites I can cook/feast!! I have several recipes for dishes that I've grown up with and I'm trying to perfect them, as well as a couple of websites that have some REALLY GREAT looking dishes. I'd be happy to share the websites with you if you're interested. The websites offer the recipe file option. Phred52

I used to just stuff clipped out and/or printed recipes in one of my outdoor cookbooks until I realized that I was wrecking the binding. What I did was buy four folders with pockets and label them 'Pheasant', 'Deer', 'Fish', and 'Misc'. The recipes that I've tried and like go in the left side to make them easier to find, the right side contains the rest of the recipes. It has really helped, now I can just goto the folder of the meat I'm preparing to cook, and most of my favorates are close to the top. I also like to make comments on each recipe like 'good', 'Julie likes', 'cut down on salt'. The lousy recipes get tossed out.

I put together a cookbook in Word and gave it out for Christmas gifts one year. Woking on Volume two.

Also google Allrecipes. It is now my go to site for new recipes. All the recipes are reviewed by Common Joes who try them and say what they like or don't like. Also has a recipe box to save the ones you find interesting.
