      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 .

To go with CFRay's Rooftop mallard...

Recommended Posts

I was sitting out in the garage in my little fishin shop and heard some commotion going on outside. Then I hear the quack quack and knew what was going on. I ran in the house and grabbed the duck call and started chatting with the hen. Hey, it's been a while, what can I say.

Quack?

It was really hard to get a good exposure, one direction I had blue sky background and ended up with a silhoette (sp?) or a properly exposed mallard and a blown out background. The other direction, I had little to no light, so I did what I could and got these two shots. Canon Digital Rebel with a 70-200 F4L.

Tom, not much you can do about the dynamic range of your sensor, so I think its best to pick the best exposure for the subject. Sure you can do a lot in PS but grab shots are just what they are. You are really telling a story here so I wouldn't sweat a perfect exposure when you have little time to set one up.

Why build a blind? I'm thinking a lawn chair, lounger type would be good and a small cooler. Then start calling and wait for the mallards to show up on the roof.
