      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 .

Eclipse Totality

Recommended Posts

Made it down to Missouri to visit a friend and witness the eclipse. Cool event overall. I had a tripod malfunction seconds before totality began so all of my shots were handheld at 600mm so I know they could be better. I still am happy with the results though.IMG_2572.thumb.jpg.d02c18180919b26d162dc7e0335eb3ba.jpgIMG_2557.thumb.jpg.0432c318decbdef924c59b03c953e8c3.jpgIMG_2567.thumb.jpg.c2e4b10bd3777f4d8790945ce4cad465.jpgIMG_2551.thumb.jpg.f378fec58c30c5e13ad0df066ff05c7a.jpg

Wow.

I was tempted to drive down to my sister's place in KC, but the probability of cloudy skies scared me away.  I have some regrets.

Where were ya?

I did drive to Frontenac state park to get a look at what we got here.  Didn't look like the clouds we're going to cooperate in the metro.

I was in Columbia and it was pretty cloudy as well and looked like it was going to rain. Luckily got a open area to come by during the totality and then kinda cleared up after that. If a friend didn't live in columbia I would have probably driven some place else because clouds were definitely in the forecast.
