      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 .

Had some lovely fog this morning. Wish I'd have had a bit more time, but did click a few on my way to work.

Sorry, guys. This is a beaver slough that got drained last summer. Can't decide which of these I like the best:

I love the second photo of the ghost tree. Beautiful. The beaver slough has me stumped--I like the sun of the first, the grass detail of the second and the shadows of the third and fourth. Don't suppose you could combine them all into one for me, could you?

The first image in the beaver pond series is beautiful!! I would love to see what the image would have looked like with a neutral density filter to tone down the sun.....Love the majestic white pine in the second image.

Great series, if I had to pick a favorite of the beaver slough, I think I would pick the second one. They are all great though.

What a great series Ken with all that cool light. It sure looks like there will be a few more days like that to come in the near future.

Thanks all! A couple of thoughts run through my head when I look at these reply's. The first is just how different we all are in what we like when we see an image. So many people like this one or that one for their own reasons. Sometimes I have to remember that when I'm working for a client. What I see, or what I like is not necessarily what they're looking for. I think it's the exceptional image that has a bit of something for everyone to grab on to. The other thought (I guess a little along the same line)is kinda what Sarah had to say. I wish I could take bits and pieces of these and put 'em together as one, and I suppose with Photoshop I could, but for me, that takes some of the joy out of finding that perfect shot. Don't get me wrong, I PS as much as anybody, but I'm looking (and probably always will be) for that shot that includes all the elements that make it a universal winner! Good luck to us all in that quest! smile
