      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!!!

Hey folks, looking at getting the wife a new camera for Christmas.  She really wants a DSL type camera.  Any suggestions?  A guy at worked said the lens is the number one item, so spend as much on that as possible.   It will be used for typical family vacation/holiday pictures, nothing to intense.



Happy Holidays

Thats good advice on the lens, bodies change almost yearly with new features and upgrades. The old adage spend money on good glass not bodies applies here. As you are starting out and you gain experience you will find out the things in a camera that are important to you. At a later date you will likely move up to a more advanced body when you decide what features you need for your type of shooting. I've been through at least 7 or 8 different bodies but am still shooting most of my original lenses since I switched to digital.

I don't get hung up on brand loyalty. You will find a camera that fits you and a menu system that is comfortable to you. All cameras these days from all the manufacturers are good. What you will learn is that you are buying into a system. As you invest in better lenses you will find it difficult to switch brands because of the cost. I've said this so many times here it should be a permanent sticky! Don't invest a lot of money starting out until you find out your needs in a camera.
