      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 .

tacklejunkie,I approved your email address change. A confirmation email was sent and you did not confirm. If anyone else has the issue  be sure to check your email filters and have the confirmation email sent again.

We always respond to messages we see.

So, what is this?  We need to re-register for FM?   Or is it something else.  I click on FM and get the home page.  Click on forums get the home page.      The button to log in is gone.  Does no one test this stuff before it goes live?  It looks like the page at fishingminnesota/forums is the home page so there is just a page pointing at itself so far as forums go.   Shouldn't the home page be fishingminnesota.com and the page at /forums the one with links to each of the forums?  

Why not just roll back whatever changes were made until the problem can be solved?  

Note, This will get you to the fishing reports sub forum.

I looked at the source for the page.  Fishingminnesota.com/forums is that home page looking thing.   The button/link to forums points to fishingminnesota.com/forums.  So unless you guys changed something in the last hour or so, clearing a cache isn't going to do it.

Still does exactly the same thing even using edge browser, which I almost never use.   go to fishingminnesota.com.   Get a home page.   Click on "forums" button.  Get same page.  rinse and repeat.

Seems to be fixed, as of now.  Just checked.  Hit the fm button, got the listings, browsed a forum, hit home.  Oops. 

Just don't hit the home button while browsing or you will be back to the home page trap. 

Just tried again and it is back to being broken.   Very strange.

Another experiment.  Brought up HSO on chrome.   Clicked the FM link.  Forum list page showed up.   

http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/   is the link.   

Browsed a forum

Clicked on "home" up near the top 

went to the home page thing with the pheasant.  

Now won't go back to forum list page, even using the history button on chrome.   

The page with the pheasant also comes up at http://fishingminnesota.com/

If I click on one of the posts listed on the right side I go there, but the link to the levels above is grayed out.

The whole split with FM/HSO has to be one of the most absurd things I've ever seen. Taking something that was awesome and make it more difficult and less user friendly. Trouble logging in, finding posts, remembering which page you made a post, and even just trying to get to the page from a bookmark. Unbelievable! I used to be a daily poster and viewer of FM - had to create a new screenname because of log in issues. Now I rarely ever even come to the page because of how difficult it has become and obviously the decrease in traffic has further compounded the issue. It is really sad because this used to be such a great site!

I'm still not having luck, on any device, any browser, and I have changed email addresses and checked the spam.  Yes, this used to be a great site, I think this has really hurt it. Not blaming anyone, sometimes changes have to made to web formats, but it is a shame.  I used to get a ton of great info on here.

Is it working ok now?

I couldn't duplicate the issue so it was very hit or miss. Hopefully the issue is resolved.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
