      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 .

Got an email red alert so popped out for an hour to see how they were. Started out as a haze and got a shooting star.  Then they started dancing and it was dandy for about 30 minutes and then died down.  Probably will be going good off and on till sun up.  Took 64 pics. :)

I was flying home about midnight last night and the show from 43,000 was pretty good. Was going to head out after I got home about 1am from the Kentucky Derby but it had already been almost a 22 hour day and just crashed. Witnessed a ton of meteors as well. You could see the smoke haze and certainly smelled it when I landed.

Lots of great shots this morning from around the midwest. Spent the last two hours looking at some beautiful shots! Its got to be a big storm for me to even think about shooting, this was a good one. Looks like the best shots came around 4am which was actually the peak that was forecasted. Congrats on catching some lights!

I got the alert that there might be more activity tonight. I haven't heard what time to set the alarm. All I saw last night was a weird glow. I missed to good show.

started out as a glow and got pretty good after a while. Remember also that the camera sees more than we do since the shutter is open 15 seconds and it all goes on one pic. Way up north the eyes would see them much better. 

I got the yellow alert. looks like cloudy after midnight anyway.

nothing like the were when I lived in Alaska. But still nice. :) 

Where did you live in AK?  I lived year round in Seward in the early 90's for a few years.  Saw plenty of good lights there when the clouds didn't get in the way, which was fairly often.  Best I ever saw was one time early Sept. hiking the back country of Denali back in the early 80's when I spent the summers up there.
