      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 finally get it to shore after a long extended battle and you glance at its gills and they are loaded with gill lice.

You hurry to unhook it so you can release it. It flounders and rolls on its side. You get that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach. Did you battle this giant too long? Has its ability to breath properly been compromised by the parasites attached to its gills.

You try for 45 minutes to revive it. You let it go finally thinking this giant small stream brookie is going to make it. A couple swishes of it tail and then it goes up on its side. You leave it there because it is out in the middle of the deep pool.

You go home wishing the best for the giant brookie you released. Your curiosity gets the best of you and you go back to the hole the next day. Its lifeless body lays in the center of the hole.

You chisel it out and bring it to your taxidermist and look at it on your wall for the rest of your life knowing it was your PB and you did all you could to return it to the water! wink
