      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 .

Northern Manitoba Forest Fires

Recommended Posts

These are a few photos of the situation in the Cold Lake/Sherridon area (west central Manitoba near Flin Flon, east side of Kississing Lake) at the end of May.

Extreme fire behaviour was demonstrated. You'll notice that the smoke plumes are vertical which means that this fire was not wind driven. It was so intense that it advanced on its own, spewing fire brands that ignited other fires in front.

You'll get an appreciation of the combination of luck and hard work that resulted in only a couple of old sheds being lost in the communities. Two railway bridges outside of the communities were also burned.

Sprinklers were placed on all buildings, bridges and harvested wood piles threatened by the advancing fire. The fire was eventually held at 10,400 ha (23,000 acres).

All photographs were taken by some of the fire fighters on site during the advance of the fire.

The Cranberry Portage/Sherridon/Pukatawagan area received less than 10 mm (< half an inch) of rain in the past 3 weeks. Before that, it had not rained since early April. That area of Manitoba is not over the danger of wild land fire!

Is the fire danger high all across central Canada? I'm heading for the English River in west central Ontario a week from today.

Hope everyone's alright up there.

Some parts of Northern Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba are having high fire danger levels. That leaves a lot of country for fishing. I haven't heard anything about Ontario yet. No news is good news.
