      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 .

Benefits of High Gas Price

Recommended Posts

I really think that you must have just hit a lull in traffic cause in the Grand Rapids area there was a lot more trucks at the 2 public access's that I went by and all the traffic on highway 2 when I was coming home tells me that summer vacation time is under way and school is done for quite a few.

I agree high gas prices has made it great up here in Brainerd on the weekends. It doesn't take twice as long to make it across town and the lakes are no where near as busy as normal. Memorial day weekend was crazy, it kinda looked like a ghost town here with hardly any cars on the road.

I noticed the same thing coming home on Sunday from Pequot Lakes. I left during a time when I thought traffice would be terrible and it was a great drive home. Maybe it was an off weekend with school just getting done.

I passed a neighborhood gas station this morning on the way to work and threw up a little in my mouth....

Thanks George.

Every one is welcome in the Ottertail, Battle Lake area! You'll be saving money as gas is "cheap" grin at $3.89 !! Just make sure you drive right on by all the " sick:MARTS"on the way!

It sure is nice to go out on the St.Croix on the weakend and not have to deal with those pleasure cruisers. I dont think they can afford to run those things.

We'll see how it is the rest of the summer. The traffic is so horrible going north from the twin cities that we will never buy a cabin up there.
You just need to go there when the traffic isnt bad! If I go to my cabin and leave my house at 530 on a Friday, it takes me 1.5 hours to get to Forest Lake. If I leave at 630 it takes me 1 hour. And I see hardly any traffic. I live south of the metro!

In 22 years of going to the cabin, I have never said, and will never say, "The traffic is so bad that I am going to sell the cabin". Like it was posted above, go at non-peak times. If you go through the cities during rush hour, it will take extra time. I live in the south metro, and I will leave either 2-3 PM or 7-8 PM. It is 225 miles to my cabin from my place. I usually cruise during those time, and once I am up there, AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH heaven on earth.

Another benifit from high gas prices is, I no longer have to waist my time shopping for all the extra un-needed stuff, such as clothes, food, extra tackle, ect... One more thing, it doesnt take as long when I go to the store with my wife either wink

Yeah I have noticed it too. Last weekend there was barely anyone out in the Detroit Lakes area. The colder than normal water temps have kept the "recreational sports" users away too. It is great.
