      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!!!

An hour last evening...

Once again the smoke filled sky up here is having an interesting effect on the sun's color. The haze is the direct results of forest fires burning up north. In turn, the smoke from these fires winds up upon us when the winds blow out of the north.

I captured these yesterday evening at the end of my driveway during a well involved sunset.

The first capture was of this Wood Lily with the low lying sun (not visible) in the immediate back ground. Notice how the sun's light was able to penetrate through the Lilies pedal giving it that nice showdow effect on the other pedals.


After capturing a few photo's of the lily I swithed my attention to the large drainage ditch that runs along the road in which I live. Here the ditch is filled with these very tall, broam like grass that I simply refer to as, you guessed it, "Tall Grass!


Regardless of the actual name, the photo opps. became very intersting as the setting sun continued it's advance.
