      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 .

How to kill this bush.....???

Recommended Posts

My yard backs up to a marsh and this plant/bush is thriving all along my retaining wall and I would like to kill it. I took the pics today after I cut it all down. I cut it all down three years ago and its come back thicker and more shoots. It has green shoots that turn to a bark color when they age, and it has blue colored fruits.

I dont believe the city will let me run a bobcat back through there to dig out the stumps and its almost impossible to dig it out by hand.

Anything I can spray or put over the stumps of this plant to kill it?

looks like dogwood??? Them are nice shrubs! Trim it and enjoy! gringrin

I would think the old concentrated Round-up applied directly to the freshly cut stump with a small painters brush would kill it.

That shrub is going to be 6-10ft tall and will get there every year after you cut it back. Its actually a great native shrub for wildlife and screening. Maintain it yearly and it will be fine. If you don't like it, nuke it.
