      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 .

Looked out the window and lo and behold

I bought a cabin in the woods north of Park Rapids this summer and just started putting out feeders. It's kind of a pain since I only go up there a couple times a month but it has been worth it. I looked out the window the other day when I was up there and there he was. Luckily, my camera was on the table right next to me. I do love these magnificent woodpeckers.

Cool.   I've been putting out suet cakes to attract the pilleateds that allegedly are in the area.  No luck yet, although the feeders didn't get refilled whilst I was up north.   But I'm back and hopeful.

Mine has been getting attacked nightly by raccoons! I have 3 of the fattest little buggers you ever seen. Maybe if they keep eating that fat they will stroke out :confused:

We used that Golden Marin and coke at our hunting camp for skunks and a friend is a greens keeper at a big golf coarse here. It's amazing, they don't even take a step, they die immediately. I've been told cats,dogs, deer, and most big animals won't touch it but not sure if that's true or not though.

I would put it up in a tree if I were to do something like that, just in case.  I also have heard dogs aren't interested, but I don't trust the dogs to do what they are supposed to do.
