      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 .

Headed into North Dakota to see if I could witness the snow goose migration.  We only found about 4000 geese, but talked to one guy that said there were about 700,000 geese at this time last year in Tewaukon National Wildlife Refuge.

First butterfly of the year, flew along side the pickup to get my attention.  First blossom, sure sign of spring.  Fluorescent green on mallard.  Gave me a few minutes before flying off.  Great horned owl playing peek-a-boo.  Eagle wanted to play the game too.


Short vacation is over, now back to work.

Little road trip to Fergus Falls last weekend to visit the egret rookery.  Fun morning and found more than just egret hanging around.  Talked to LeeKen about the purple headed mallard.  He thought it was just the way the light was hitting the head.  The two side by side and it looked like they were different color.  Any thoughts?  Little hawk was taken in Maplewood State Park on the way back home.
