      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 .

Tip for weed-n-feed

Recommended Posts

Most people will already know this, but there's numerous times I see people spreading weed-n-feed in the mid-morning throughout the rest of the day.

A granular weed-n-feed needs the leaves of the dandelion to be wet. This means either run your irrigation system as you're spreading, covering each "zone" as it finishes, or spread the fertilizer in the early morning with a heavy dew, or right after a rain.

If you are going to apply a granular weed-n-feed, run your hand in the grass first. If it isn't real real wet, chances are you're not going to see very good results. You'll FEED great, but you won't WEED much of anything.

Just trying to save some people the hassle and expense of re-applying, or giving up applying because "it never does any good anyways".

Right now as the dandelions are "blooming", or in the fall.

Truthfully the best time is right after a frost in the fall. The frost will trigger the plants to take in all the energy for wintering, and will pull the most amount of chemical into the root system.

If you wait until after bloom in the spring, once they turn to seen, they'll basically turn dormant again, until the fall bloom cycle.

You can still kill them, but it won't be nearly as effective.

For those that have the time Tuesday morning (5-20), if you've already got the granular weed-n-feed available, it would be an ideal early morning application, if you got this rain Monday / Monday evening.

There'll be a fairly heavy dew in the morning, and with the stiff wind come Tuesday afternoon, it'll dry on the leaf quickly.
