      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 .

Post your fall color shots here

Recommended Posts

Hey all:

Well, it's getting to be that time. The nights are cooler, the tomatoes are red, and so are the maple leaves in some areas up here.

I'll be shooting fall color a lot this year, and I suspect a bunch of you will be, too. Because, let's face it, it's one of the prettiest seasons of the year. smilesmile

I thought it would be cool to start a thread that can act as a fall color photo album so folks can look in and experience the wonder of nature in the autumn. I know there's not much leaf turn yet at points south of the arrowhead, but we gotta start somewhere.

I'll kick it off from one shot this week last year, a group of coneflowers in front of a short, early-turning red maple. More to come as fall progresses this year.

Good idea and great photo to start the thread with. That really is coloful. The bg can really make or break a photo.

I should have something in about 3 weeks or so.

All it takes in one leaf, or even one small spot on one leaf. Fall color starts . . . in the mind . . . gringringrin

Thanks for sharing so far, everyone. Let's keep it up. So much more beauty to come. smile

This one is from last year. This tree hasn't changed yet and I don't suspect it will have color for long when it does.

I have been in Grand Marais this last week, where color is just beginning, but here is one from today in SW MN where we grab our color where we can:

Not much color around here yet. I did find this sumac at trout camp. I thought the repeating elements of the composition was interesting

This was last year and even though it was only taken with my little digital camera I think it might be my favorite. I will never forget that view...I'll try to get another picture from the same spot this weekend and then compare. Last year is going to be VERY hard to beat!
