      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 .

A rare MN sighting..no pics

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately I had no camera and even if I did it happened so fast that I doubt I would have been fast enough. Just making some casts off shore up at the cabin which is on the Crow Wing River between Motley and Pillager, when I spot this duck flying up river. Now being that I'm an obsessed waterfowler I noticed it from a ways off, flying like a bat out of you know where it had to be a teal. To my amazement and joy it flew past me at about 40-50 yrds, he banked right so I could see him in all his glory. The first drake cinnamon teal I've ever seen in the wild!! Must of decided to head east for alittle memorial day vacation.

That's a great sighting, ironman! They typically only nest as far east as eastern Montana but are seen across the eastern U.S. now and then during migration. I've always found it interesting how birds that migrate seem to wander so much during migration. Neat that you saw him! gringrin
