      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 .

Arboretum Flowers

We got a little break from the clouds so we went down to the Arboretum this afternoon. It turned out to be a nice day there but it sure didn't look like it for a while.

Thanks Everyone. It was a fun day. The kids love the Arboretum. They don't even mind when I take my time and take a lot of photos. My son and daughter both love taking photos. It's a fun family time.

Mike,

These are all very nice! I've been enjoying your macro work. You're tempting me to go out and pick up the Canon 180mm L. I've been trying to save for a BIG telephoto, but with the daunting cost and seeing your work (along with some from others) macro is looking very tempting. wink

Thanks MM and mcary. mcary, that's a very nice compliment. I've really been enjoying shooting macro stuff. It's really nice because aren't a lot of scenic areas around me and I don't always have the opportunity to shoot wildlife so this gives me a way to shoot more and it didn't cost me a ton of cash to get into. You should look into the 105mm macro, it would save you about a grand and it wouldn't put back your savings too much for your big boy lens. I know that what Steve shoots and he seems very happy with it. I'm shooting the Sigma version.

Thanks again
