      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 .

Going to Town on the Prarie (Warning for content)

Recommended Posts

Spent a little time at the Theordore Rosevelt National Park, North and South Units this weekend. I will be PP'ing for a week or 2 with every memory card full and I forgot to bring a patch cable to run from my camera to laptop. (doh)!. Anyway some really cool stuff. I'll Start with these Stinkers (literally). They stink so bad, and the Gnats are thicker than pea soup and it was hard to work in the grass all weekend.

The Cynomys ludovicianus or commonly know as the Black Prarie Dog. These guys are a menace to cattle ranchers everywere because of the holes they dig. The live in little towns with other prarie dogs. They get upwards of 2-3 pounds so the holes they dig are large. Here are 3 images in the day of the life of a prarie dog.

You should know better. I seriously just about fell over laughing at that pic. I shot one similar with muskrats in the water, but the male was trying to drown the female in the water and at the angle I had, you couldn't see his lady friend.

I eliminated one on my way home from Isabel, SD a couple of weeks ago. Never had witnessed one running down the middle of the road before...

Sounds like you had a good time if you filled up all your memory cards!

Cool shots of the black-tailed prairie dog, man! Glad to hear you had such a good time. Seems like there are bugs anywhere a nature photographer wants to go. gringrin
