      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 .

Turkey Vulture's...

Recommended Posts

The turkey vulture has never been on my favorite's bird list. However, after yesterday's experience I have to admit that I now have a much greater appreciation for these graceful and magestic flyers.

As I was walking along a deserted beach, suddenly a dozen vultures broke onto the scene. The wind was coming directly off the lake and these incredably graceful aviators were taken full advantage by tacking back and forth along the entire two mile's of beach in search of an easy meal. They could care less about my presence and made no bones about hanging directly above me for what seemed like minutes at a time. (maybe they were sizing me up! :()

The turkey vultures aren't the only show in town when it comes to taking advanatge of an easy meal. Here's a herring gull dining on what appears to be the remains of a common carp that had washed up onto the shore. It's safe to say that gulls don't miss to many of these opportunities when they are presented.

Last but least, the golden eagle is another opportunistic creature that is always in search of a meal. As you can see, this capture was taken under extremely low light conditions. None the less the silouette of this goldy is still presentable.

Those bird are strangely magnificent. We watch them 'kettle' from our front window here at the firehouse every evening 'bout sundown. Close to a hundred roost on a cell tower here in town.

Stu, You should probably get ready for some more dead carp soon. There was a fish Kill south of Fargo were several thousand dead carp were found floating up the river.

Nice Pics by the way.
