      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 .

We lost another good one yesterday. Many years of pheasant hunting caught up to her and with the assistance of the Vet she went peacefully to the other side.

dam!.....this has been a hard winter for lot of guys. Sweet looking little dog and you will always have her with you when you have a quiet moment in the field or at home. All my many dogs are still with me and I think of them often; perhaps more so as I get older.

Maxx will always bring a smile to your face and sometimes......a little tear.

MinnesotaMike, I just went through this a few weeks ago (thanks for your post in my thread), I feel your pain and sorrow to the core! You gave her many wonderful days in the field chasing pheasants and laying around at the lake, something that can never be taken away from you and her! Just remember how much she loved you for that. Those memories are ones we really do cherish and eventually we will be laughing about many of the antics throughout the years! I wish you and your family nothing but the best and I will say a prayer for you and your friend Maxine.

Thanks for all the kind words guys. It has been different around the house, we went from two dogs back in July to now none.

On my way home yesterday I drive buy the place my wife works part time. I saw her car in the lot and the first thing that popped into my mind was " I need to get home to let the dog out "

Needless to say it's quiet around the house.......

Good Luck,

Mike

My beautiful Annie left us a few months back. It was more painful than I can remember, and I've had a bunch of dogs.

Give it some time. Remember Maxx.

But in a month or two, the prime of spring, start to look around at the seasons puppie crop. No rush....just poke around. One day you will walk into a pen and a happy, innocent little face is gonna look up and right into your eyes. You'll say "Well hello there little one."

And the two of you will ride home with her on your lap.

That's the way it works. Life is good.
