      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 .

Campground Around Motley

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions for a public campground around Motley? There are quite a few private ones, but it seems the going rate is around $45/night, which is way more than I want to spend for a tent spot.

Has anyone ever stayed at Rock Lake Campground in the Pillsbury State Forest?

How about Dower Lake Recreational Area in Staples?

Thanks!

Several years ago I drove through the Rock Lake campground and it looked pretty nice. Some large pine trees to camp under. I have not stayed there however, I know somebody who does and he likes it.

Sounds like it would worth a shot. Always fun to a little exploring.

We stayed at Rock Lake a couple years ago. We had an OK site and the place was full. Only thing I really remember is that someone sunk a couple picnic tables in deep water at the beach and I could stand and have my head out of the water. There were a few bigger boats on the lake but I think they were tubing more than fishing.

There used to be a KOA on Fishtrap but it has gone through a couple ownerships and the overnight cost has gone way up. My inlaws used to have a spot just down the road and we would go up there to shower.
