      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 .

Ron Schara's Minnesota Bound Loon Cam

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if anyone has noticed that Minnesota Bound is a sponsor of the Women's Forum. They have a great Loon Cam set up that everyone should check out. She's sitting on a couple of eggs too! Here's the link: MN Bound Loon Cam

Also Larry's Loon Log is posted under the cam which is really neat.

Very cool Lisa - Definitly one to keep an eye on !!!

It looks like her nest is floating, it moves up and down with the water.

I saw a loon nest this weekend up north and unfortunately had to get closer to it than I wanted seeking cover from a storm that came in very quick. It nearly sent me for a swim. I was within maybe 100 yards or so. They look pretty cool. Looks like 4" pvc pipe base possibly filled with foam for floatation and then a platform with hay and some aquatic vegetation. The loon that was guarding the nest stayed directly between me and the nest the whole time I waited out the storm. She didn't seem to mind my presence too much, but I wasn't going any closer than I had to.
