      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 .

My weekend

Recommended Posts

I got in the boat with Jim on Saturday! Pretty slow fishing. I caught 1 14" walleye but we lost a couple other bites in the process. We went home and washed windows. Did some laundry. Relaxed and just hung out. I've been trying to keep things nice and calm since I'm officially starting nursing school tomorrow morning and I'm nervous as heck. No more prerequisite classes and waiting lists. I'm finally on my way. Wish me luck FMers!

I wish you well in your studies, Lisa!

I have a couple of friends who also went to nursing school after having another career first. They are so glad they went through it, even though it was scary.

WOOP WOOP! winklaugh Again, thanks for all the good luck wishes-they really mean a lot to me! smile

HEY Lisa!! GOOD LUCK in school, you know it will be worth it in the long run. About the $$ we talked about, it will be awarded in Dec. so will be in touch about that . As far as the weekend went Gina and I rode over to Taylors Falls then north and back south all the way down to Prescott, with a stop in Stillwater on the way down. by the time we made it back home was about 205 miles. Had a great day!! leave this Sunday for Ark. to see Gina's dad and stepmom. What a week last week, Dylan with a permit and Eric with a license. LOL

Good Luck Lady Lisa.....I took my Jim for a 4 hour tour of Wabana, Little Trout, Big Trout, and the Joyce Estate on Saturday. Took us 4 hours round trip, no fishing. First time he has been in the boat in 2 years!!! Since he had the kidney stone removed he has dropped 50 pounds of excess fluid. Went to lake X tonight with my "boyfriend" as Jim calls him and I got 3 walleyes between 14 and 20" and my friend only got sunnies. But they were huge sunnies! What a great night of fishing.

Good luck with the new school year Lisa. I'm only taking one class his semester while I wait to get accepted into my law enforcement program.

My wife has finally started her path to nursing. She's taking Anatomy and Physiology this semester. She's already making flashcards for her terms. I'm sure you remember it well.

I live by the flash cards Andy! They are the Best study tool! Good luck to your wife. Both A & P I and II are tough but they're the building blocks of nursing school. Hopefully she won't have any waiting lists too. sickmad Which school is she attending?

Barb, glad to hear that your Jim is feeling better. Good job on the walleyes too!

Mark, thanks for looking into scholarships for me! You're awesome! Good to hear you and Gina are out and about on the bike. Sure am bummed that we didn't get together this summer but we've been too crazy to barely make it up to the cabin ourselves. I can't believe our boys are behind the wheel-freaky!! eekeek I suppose Eric wants his own car now. crazy Have fun in Arkansas!! laugh

If you love the flashcards then you and my wife are kindred spirits. I can't stand them but she lives by them. She is going to North Hennepin COmmunity COllege. She loves it so far. As far as waiting lists I hear grades make a huge impact at NHCC and she's doing quite well. She already had a 4-yr degree so she is just doing some extra science classes before applying to the nursing program.
