      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 know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Morgan's entry...



FYI- I said 11 1/4" on the beard for this entry- it's in between 1/8" and 1/4", but closer to 1/4" so I went with it.  If anyone has a concern about this please feel free to round it down to the  1/8" mark. 






Weight is in lbs and oz so 23.5 on the form is correct.




If I'm missing anything please let me know.  I'm thrilled to help Morgan contribute to this thread for Team 2!!!

Sorry for the delay in getting these up, and for any sideways photos (don't see an option to rotate them). Just been really busy lately. Go team Knock on Wood!

The picture of the phone is where I have the picture of the bird on the scale. I did a bowfishing tournament and after 30 hours without sleep I made the mistake of putting my phone on the truck hood while I took off my jacket. It made it the 5 milles to interstate 35 then flipped off tbe hood and the semi behind us hit it.
