      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 .

I finally did it!

Recommended Posts

I have been thinking about buying a digital SLR for over a year and pondered over several. I finally decided on a Nikon D80 paired with a Nikkor 18-135mm lens. I have been thinking about this one for about 3 or 4 months and decided today was the day when the wife gave the approval!!!

I realize that this barely touches some of the Mercededs/BMW of cameras that you guys have but after only reading through the first couple of pages I am quickly realizing I have no idea what any of it means. grin

So you probably won't see any amazing shots from this guy but I'm pretty excited to turn it on as soon as the battery is charged and see what I can do!

jer, way to go, man!

You have all the camera and lens you need to take smashing pictures. With digital cameras it's the sensor that really counts unless you're in a very demanding sub-specialty like action sports, and the DSLR bodies at the D80 level come with great sensors.

Have fun with and and show us some stuff. And don't be afraid to ask questions.

Congratulations!! I use the D80 also and I'm extremely happy with it. You'll have a lot of fun with it for sure. That lens is a great lens to get you going also.

Glad to have another Nikonian on the forum.
