      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 .

When I finally buy my own house, the neighbors will hate me. My front yard will be restored short grass prairie with a creeping bent grass putting green right in the middle of it. The putting green will be raised up a bit with stone retaining wall.

Have your laugh and I'll post pics when I actually do it.

Ahh summer. Gotta love the grass and the informal neighborhood lawn competitions.

Here's our lawn back from 2005. I'm amazed at how much that autumn blaze maple has grown in three years time. Please excuse the image resolution, it was taken with our video camera.

I don't currently have any recent pics to post. The tree was in the ground for a year and half at that point. Not a whole lot of growth the first two years. Good growth the third year and great growth (2.5 - 3 feet?) last year as the roots were firmly established.

If I get some time I'll take a new shot of the yard and post it.

jwhjr,

You asked for a recent picture of the autumn blaze maple. Here's a picture I took tonight after mowing. A little hard to see in the pictures, but it has grown 5-6 feet in 3 years.

Here's my lawn. Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to resize the pictures. If someone else knows how to make them larger, feel free.
