      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!!!

this morning(not much sun) and again in the late afternoon(full evening sun)....this mornings images weren't the greatest for me... met Jay Mandich(JayMn)this morning at the parking lot and we walked the shoreline for shore birds and the rain soaked trails looking for drummimg grouse...we saw a grouse but he gave us his version of "I'm otta here!" before we could set up and get a few images.....I went back a couple hours ago and found 2 new drumming logs!....5 total now!....and they are drumming to beat the band!...they always quit as I approach though grin.gif

Thanks guys!.....and a good loon shot Jay!...I hear you on the cold! my fingers were getting stiff carrying that manfrotto around for 2 hours(of course I never wore gloves) grin!thought it would be warmer but that wind picked up across the lake.........Sure tough to get those classic loon against our "land of sky blue water" shots

with this gray weather and only more to come today and tomorrow....This year there seems to be more loons on little Carey then other years,Maybe those 2 we saw will have little ones...who knows!...would make for some great photo ops.......You're certainly right Ken! been seeing a ton of birds of different species......I saw another sharpshinned (maybe coopers) hawk yesterday at the same spot I saw them 2 weeks ago while looking for drumming grouse....They've got to be nesting somewhere closeby... maybe I'll find em grin
