      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 .

Page Refresh?

Question

Santa was kind enough to bring me a new Sony Vaio computer for Christmas.

How come it "refreshes" each time I hit the "back" button while scrolling thru the forums? It still works great, but it is kind of nice having the little light bulb telling you if you have read that post or not. If the page refreshes that often, the little light bulb is worthless.

Anyone else have this problem?
Is it in my settings?

My old computer never did this...

Try this? Right click your mouse and box pops up and click the option Open in new Window and all the forums will stay the same.They won't change till you refresh the page.

If I right click, there is no option "Open" in there.
I run Windows XP with Internet Explorer 6.

I have XP also and I think I know what Fish Toys is trying to say b/c I do it on mine all the time.

Heres what you have to do. For ex. before you left click on "Equipment-Expert Information", hit the right button on your mouse. (To make this work make sure you right click ON the "Equipment-Expert Information") When you right click you will see this box of options, the second one down from the top should say "open in new window" click that and it will bring up the forum you just clicked on and when you are done reading just exit out of that window you just opened. And Forum Home Page should still be there in the original window.

In easy words just - right click, select "open in new window" and walla!

That's what I was saying but in not enough words. Hope it works for skeets or anybody else with the same problem. The only thing watch when you get back to the main forum because they will all stay with the light on.
