      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 .

I am really puzzled why there are no posts here. I have been interacting with a lot of women who are very active in fishing, hunting, and outdoor sports. These forums seem to be mostly male based which is a bit sad. I just came back from an annual fish camp that 70 women attended. Everyone was eager to learn, eager to share their knowledge, I also became a member of WAM (Women Anglers of Minnesota) and fished their tournament on Osakis. We are out there, we are avid anglers and hunters.  I myself have had an exciting year, fished Sturgeon Bay, Chequamegon Bay, the Wolf river in Wisconsin, Red Lake, Lake of the Woods, fished Sturgeon on the Rainy river. Most of these events were with other female anglers. Is Facebook the only media for us anymore? Are there even any women lurking out here anymore?  I have learned so much over the past 10 years that I am eager to share, but is there anyone still here to share it with?

Sorry to hear of this Miss. Lambjm, not sure what the reason is that people fell off the face of the earth that used to post on this site. It seems related to when the site changed the format we lost a lot of daily posters, male and female. It would be nice to make friendships on some of the sites and have someone to fish with also for those of us that are single or have no family that shares the interest in fishing.
