      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 .

Instant preview of messages

I like most of the upgrades made to the sight. One that I don't care for is the addition of all the "For Sale..." headings added to the "Hop to:" drop box. It has made it slower for me to jump from one forum to the next. Could all these be made red or something so your eye can fix on the sale items when you're looking for them?

I kinda like the instant preview mode. Is there a way that you could set it up in your profile if you want it on or off? Just a suggestion to keep all the campers happy!

Go to "My Stuff" and then Profile". Find "Show Tooltip" and change that to "0" to turn Instant Preview off.

Dont like the instant preview, seems cluttered and annoying. When I'm on the site I am in a relax mode, not a fast pace video game thing. I've adapted before, will adapt again.

Yes, there were many upgrades overnight. There may still be a few issues to be worked out so please have patience with us all.

Thanks

When I click on a persons name I now get the message that I am not authorized to view their profile. Is this also new?

A suggestion, post about new changes added/implemented so it doesn't hit us as a shock. I love this site and would love to learn about any new features, like what is this buddy thing I see under My Stuff?

Our forum has two stickies; One for "Forum related issues" (any problems a user may be experiencing) and one for suggestions in which users discuss features they'd like to see have added/changed. This site really doesn't have a general or technology forum to put those in though, but they a nice thing to have around.

Am I missing something I can't find the stickies you speak of, do I need to clean my glasses?
