      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 .

That Redstart is nice and sharp! I was home today over lunch and those guys were flying all over the backyard... It's been a crazy spring as far as Warblers go, they're everywhere!

Nice collection, I have to second the warblers being out in full force right now. I have never seen so many before. I found a dead black burnian warbler on the trail to my brush pile. Now thats one cool looking bird, I wish would have been alive though.

Nice shots jonny! Looks like you had a good morning. I really like those redstarts and you a captured a nice one. They tend to move quite a bit and are hard to get framed and sharp. Good work.

Thanks again Guys....Yes That redstart certainly made my day.I haven't seen alot of these around this area and actually managed quite a few images of this one...at first I thought it to be some sort of warbler(maybe they are in the warbler family)....this redstart seemed almost curious of my presence...amazing little bird!...also I've seen tons of warblers in the area...must be the "year of the warbler"...gotta take advantage of it grin
