      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!!!


Recent camping, Itaska State Park

Our first time to the park. We were there just this last weekend. The weather, and the fall colors could not have been better.

Itasca is a favorite of mine, I did get married there 35 years ago so that might be why! The Headwaters look like it is high! Nice colors in the trees as well. Thank you for the nice photos!

I do want to try out the camping cabins sometime, preferably during the winter. Did you camp or stay in lodging?

We pulled a tent trailer and camped.  LOTS of trees down from a storm back in July I believe.  I'm surprised the cabins weren't all crushed,

Perfect timing on your part. We were at our cabin about 20 miles from there and made a drive through the Paul Bunyan State Forest on Friday and colors were looking good and then we went back through again Monday morning, the 3rd, and the colors were even a bit better but by that noon the wind was knocking down a lot of the leaves. I read that by this past weekend that the combination of wind and rain was not kind to the trees.
