      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 .

Sure looks like Chicken of the Woods, but the Laetiporus Cincinnatus variety versus the (arguably) more common Laetiporus sulphureus variety. I find Laetiporus Cincinnatus the better of the two to eat.

That said, I can't explain why it wasn't growing on wood? I've always found them on damaged or dead oak stumps/trees... Perhaps from an underground oak root? Was it near a tree at least?

Can someone else chime in? I don't want to be the only voice on the "go for it" train as it looks the part, but the edges have that "Jack O Lantern" fringe to it. That would be bad...

From reading on the jack o lantern, they have gills. This one doesn't. I didn't think about an old root. There were some trees not too far away. Didn't look to see what kind

Jacks do have gills and the caps are very soft and easily separated. After looking at/thinking about this one, I'd move into the 99% sure it's a COTW. I just don't like being the only voice of "go for it" from just an internet pic. :)

Yes 100% chicken, as for yours Del.  Those are some type of Russula, not edible that I can think of and honestly even if they were at that stage you'll get more protein from all the worms in it then from anything else.
