      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 .

Brown Thrasher (cool bird)

It was fun watching this guy work. Up and down his head would go, just to eventually pick up a piece of corn. I don't know if he was trying to split it in two first or what. That was all he picked up though, just a kernel of corn.

They are a neat bird, beak almost seems to big for its head. I like the second picture. I have heard they like popcorn of all things. I have never had one around here to try it with though.

Thanks, Jay. I think I may have to lay off the birds for awhile. That's all I dreamed about last night, birds, birds and more birds. Pretty soon I'm going to grow wings. However, I believe I captured one more bird this morning, that I hadn't had a good picture of. I'll soon find out. After this, I'll cease and desist until I get a report of indigo buntings, cedar waxwings, a scarlet tanager, pileated woodpecker, or something else new and unique to this area.

Cool bird is right! I like the pose in the second photo.

The Marshall paper had an insert in its Saturday edition of good places to go bird watching. The article was written by a Marshall birder, and listed a few of your "to do" list along with some I had never heard of. If you want a copy, I can get it to you. Nothing like helping to feed an addiction, right? grin
