      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 .

LOL a signature Del statement. :)

It's a 15 minute lock and it's built in to to keep folks from hacking your sign-in.

People run dictionary attacks on HSO logins?

Oh well, 15 minutes isn't bad.  At least we don't have to call someone to get it unlocked like some sites.

Oh, and you said "we will eventually see it and unlock you", which sounded like a manual process :)

I don't know Del, it's how the forums are set. We don't have an option right now on it.

It is what it is.

I just thought it was typical you with the draconian response you gave. :D

OK, call me confused???  There are two sites, it appears they both hold the same information, appears redundant.   What am I missing??

 

Thanks

There are two sites.  Some forums are on one and some on the other.  Some appear in the forum list on both sites.  A few are only on the list on one site. 

I am guessing this is in preparation for an expansion, so there could be a hso/Fishing Wisconsin site, for example, in addition to what is now available

​Each forum holds different information. Neither is the same. They do link to each other through forum redirects.

If you click on one of the Forums in the Minnesota Fishing Reports - Hunting category it will take you from the HSO site  to the FM forum you selected. They are easy to spot as they have no post count and they will tell you how many clicks on that link.

We will be implementing single sign-on possibly tomorrow. You sign-up or sign in to one forum and you have access to the other without the need to sign on or sign-up again.

There are nicer things coming and will wait until we have these forums stabilized. I suggest posting in here and giving out "Like this" to others now if you want to be in a VIP forum where it's limited and the best at sharing info can see and share detailed info.

Hey Rick, is there something I may need to do to be able to see newly posted pictures/photos?  I can see pics posted before the change but nothing that was posted today.  I am sure it is something on my end but not sure where to start.

Not that it matters really, but why did my post count fall by 200+?

Thanks

All I see is your text.  No symbol or other indication of a pic even being present. 

I posted pic in the bass forum this morning, and I could see the pics in the reply box as I was writing, when I submitted it and returned to forum all I could see was my text.  I believe it was Bartman that replied he could see pics fine.  I also can not see any pics Scoot posted of his sons turkey in the turkey forum.  However, all pics prior to Saturday I can see just fine.

It is just my mobile it seems.  Just logged on on my wife's laptop and and can see pics fine.  Now just to find what to mess with on the phone.  Any ideas for a Samsung galaxy 3?

I always start simple and that would mean a complete reboot or power cycle.  I had problems importing photos to the site (the old site) but when I would reboot my phone the problem would clear up and I'd be good to go for a while.  Worth a shot.

So how do we now go about posting pictures? The old way was so easy with the little icon at the top? And what about emoticons, all I see or get is a smile face in the above bar? I want this new system to work but I am not always a smile face guy! :-(

Leech,  posting pics is real easy!

Just click on the paperclip at bottom left of the reply box. 

Choose your file.

Choose your pic.

Pics will show in text box.

Then submit reply.

As far as other emoticons I can't help.

Why do they have that you click on the dot to get the first read?  Why would you not make the topic clicked on to bring you to the first thread?  Doesnt make much sense to me or any other forum that I am part of.  Ooops clicked the topic (which it use to always be) now i have no clue where in the thread I was.

    • Well, you could be right!
    • Yes, this is great to watch for kids born around '66 still in diapers and missed it on TV! 
    • Only tink bacon is good for are BLT'S.
    • As with most Ken Burns series, it's been very interesting and entertaining to watch. After seeing the same old footage for the last 40 years, the new stuff is facinating.  '66 kid here, it's amazing to me that this occurred during my lifetime. I hope some of folks put your aversion to PBS aside and enjoy  watching some history. Maybe even learning a  thing or two about it. *chuckle*
    • Juice and bear, they are a pair.  Space Aliens and Chiropractic. 
    • We have dish at the lake, and suspend it for 9 months.  Only turn it on in the summer.   5 bucks a month while suspended.  
    • Sometimes you can get a small discount, but buying at a place that also does service might be worth considering....  
    • I've had them most of the summer. The last two weeks I have not seen them.
    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
