      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 .

Baltamore Oriole

Recommended Posts

Actually, I spelled it right, just didn't capitalize it. Technically though, it is now called Northern Oriole. The Baltimore Oriole was recently combined with the western Bullock's Oriole, as a single species.

BTW Rick, the X in X-tackleman is supposed to be capitalized. grin

Okay, I had to check that statement out... are you positive about that info, X?? I called a pretty well known Naturalist/book writer and asked him about this and his quote was this "I am positive that the Baltimore Oriole is still called Baltimore Oriole".

I just want to make sure were spreading the gospel brotha. grin

Here is some info I found on the subject.

"The Baltimore Oriole hybridizes extensively with the Bullock's Oriole where their ranges overlap in the Great Plains. The two species were considered the same for a while and called the Northern Oriole, but recently, they were separated again. Molecular studies of the oriole genus indicate that the two species are not very closely related."

Jeez, wish they would make up their mind. WCS, I believe you got this info from the same place I got mine. I failed to read all the way thru. My bad. Thanks for clearing it up. It was another forum where I read that they were now called Northern Orioles. Wait a year and maybe it'll revert back. wink

grinwink I got my info from Stan Tekiela as well as some reading from the American Ornithologists' Union's (AOU). It does sound as though they've tried to change the name however.

As a side note, but along the same lines. In 1983, the AOU changed the Marsh Hawk to a name evocative of a white-rumped grayish hawk hovering over grassy wetlands to the "Northern Harrier". grin
