      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 .

Pop Quiz!! What the heck made these tracks!?

Recommended Posts

A little snowshoeing today and I came across some interesting tracks which have me baffled.  Anyone got any guesses?  2” Fresh powder on top of 8” of slightly crusted snow.  Feet go pretty deep.  No nail or hoof drag.  No print.  This is in the south metro area.  

 

The side side to side swing, sway or swagger is a challenge.  I can picture a Fox trotting with a rabbit in its mouth.  

 

What’s your guess!!??

I must have deleted it, but I took a pic of my dog last winter as it was walking/trotting down the bike trail in front of me and it had just started snowing 15 minutes prior.

 

I took the pic because it was the same sort of swishing back and forth type tracks in the pic above, she has what I call "Elf paws", very furry. So the paws were not actually touching the whole time, but the paw fur was sweeping the snow on the blacktop.

 

I am guessing fox or coyote with a healthy winter coat.

cool, I saw this exact same pattern last Saturday. saw it coming up the hill SW of me. So I turn the car around  and followed it 4 1/4 mile down the road to the cemetery, then into the cemetery. Then it went across a field so I stopped. I was thinking otter or possum or racoon?  fresh snow was only 1 inch deep. foot prints were kinda round and about 2 inches across.
