      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 .

A Turkey on Turkey Day

Recommended Posts

I'm heading to Playa del Carmen Mexico this weekend for a little get-away,so I've spent just a little time on a message board run by some folks down there. I posted this photo that I took on our last visit and it got quite a bit of a reaction. Nobody had ever seen this bird before and after doing some research I see it is only found in the Yucatan Peninsula and in parts of Belize and Guatamala, and is in danger of extinction. It is called a Ocellated Turkey. I ran across it near the road while driving through the jungle.

Actually there are huntable populations in parts of Central America.

As always, hunters are in the forefront of conservation. Hunter dollars are used in the area to educate the locals, transport turkeys into other suitable habitat and also learn about habitat needs so we can create better habitat for more turkeys.

That's a great shot of a relatively rare bird and I'm jealous.

Knew what it was as soon as I saw it being a turkey fanatic.

Very cool!
