      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 .

Keep the great pictures coming Eyeguy. You're only 50 miles from me and this is how I know which feeders to put out. It's probably about time to put out most of them though. I used to leave most of them out all year, it seemed they would get used a little bit, but the last 3 or 4 years it's only been black sunflower, suet, and some scratch stuff for the little guys that ever get touched.

I do keep mine filled all year. Kinda runs in streaks as to how fast it gets eaten. Hardly any snow this winter again so I didn't go thru much.  The oils wont spoil as long as they stay dry in the feeders.  Time to get some meal worms out and in a month the grape jelly and hummer food. :) Maybe sooner this crazy year.

Outstanding shots!!!

Can't believe you don't have a heated bird bath; birds are constantly looking for an easy drink. Every bird in the area visits mine. Robins year round, and even had Pilated Woodpeckers in it drinking and bathing. Must warn you though, they are a fulltime job keeping them full...... 

1st Yellow-rumped Warbler sighting today.
