      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Massive Manitoba Super Storm...

Recommended Posts

Yesterday, a massive storm system rolled over southern Manitoba, which included the Interlake region. By pure coincidence, I happened to out at Gimli (a resort community on the south western shores of Lake Winnipeg) when the system moved through. The air temperature took an incredible crash in a matter of seconds, by at least ten degree's! Watching the storm move closer and closer was an amazing site to behold, especially from the vantage point I had which was out on the outer sea-wall that protects Gimli's navigational harbor.

Today, various local media outlets have announced that a total of seven minor tornados touched down as a result of this super system. No report of property of damage or personal injuries were reported...thankfully! smile


As the storm moved closer, it became apparent that there was some serious potential for disaster.

These are the flags flown on top of the Gimli Harbor flag mast.

Notice how the colors jump out at you due to the dark sky in the background.
