      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 .

Well it's good to freeze up the river crossings, swamps and low spots before they get a ton of snow on them anyway.

I hate surprises! :eek:

Unfortunately most area's outside of the Duluth airport area got less. Only 3 inches in Dos Harbors and 2" at my place outside Cloquet.

Gonna take alot more to cover those rocks on the NSST, but at least it should be starting to freeze down with this cold.  Need to get the swamps frozen down good before grooming can start.  

 

I did take a short ride last Saturday, had my niece and nephew at the house for an early Xmas.  Rode my trail over towards the GIA trail but could only get half way there. Broke thru one water hole and the swamp was still way too wet to get thru.  I did get 2 miles on tho :D

Hope some snow drops somewhere. I would hate to have to drive out west just to go for a ride. Half our snow has melted again down here like usual and was more like spring than winter the last 2 days. My sled has been ready to go for 2 months now
