      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

why is my grass turning white?

Recommended Posts

Im sure someone here can answer this question for me. In some spots of my lawn the blades of grass are turning white. It is mainly in the shade but a little in some sunny areas. It looks like some one misted the area with white spray paint. Any ideas? Is it mold? I mow my lawn at the highest setting on the mower and water when needed. Usually in the morning. My backyard is very thick and green but my front is thin, but green and both have some areas with the white grass.

Mildew. You'll see it on some plants as well.

Too much moisture in the air with the cooler nighttime temps.

Some people may have seen orange on their grass blades or shoes after mowing. This would be a form of rust.

It's not going to kill your grass, it just means fall is on the way.

Answered my question too about the orange. smile When do you cut the lawn down really short in the fall? After the leaves drop/first hard frost? Since it has been so dry I have left it pretty long to keep some weeds out...

There are more people that leave the grass normal length.

We don't change the height when we mow.

The reasoning is, grass gets energy from the sun.

If you cut it short, it takes that much longer in the spring get gather that energy from the sun.

As far as cutting the grass short to keep snow mold away, I'm not entirely sure about that.

As long as you don't let the grass go 6-10+" and keep it at normal height or just a hair shorter, you're going to be fine.
