      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 .

Hey, those guys swiped my smoked ribs and kraut recipe :lol: :lol:.  If you have not tried using smoked ribs and sausage with your sauerkraut you need to try it.  The kraut (I also add some coleslaw) picks up a wonderful flavor.  Here is mine assembled and ready to bake. There is a layer of sliced potatoes and more onion rings that are hidden.

I forgot to mention... some twice smoked hocks or shanks also work great in this dish.  I'll sometimes use my 6 qt Nesco roaster for the second part of the cook.  The smells in the kitchen are unbelievable.

Hey now you are  swiping my recipe :grin:.  Man those look great, looks like a whole shank cut in half.  Nice and meaty.  That's a must for my German Gumbo.  I think what really is a plus for that dish is beef broth added.  It helps meld all the flavors together.  i love the broth.  I serve it on a deep plate just so I have a lot of that broth.  good luck.
