      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 .

Your opinion

Recommended Posts

I have just posted in the womens forum about leaving my job blah blah blah and my daughter wants the two of us to do portraits together only there is a catch (a darker side of Brittney)and I think it will really draw in the younger generation of customers. I have been really considering photography (especially since my hubby gave the go ahead) I've posted some of my daughters work she uses both make up and photoshop and I have many many many digital backgrounds to add to them. I would like your opinion as to weather or not you think this could work. Remember down here there are some really creepy people.

DeeDee, no reason why it couldn't be a workable niche within portrait photography.

There are "creepy" people everywhere, but the fact that you live in a well populated area, with major cities not that far away (Florida isn't a large state) means that you'll have a much larger customer base to draw on. That will be important, because the number of people who want such portraits taken probably will be a fairly small percentage of the population.

I figured they would be around the ages of 17-22. She doesnt want to focus on just creepy things, she does a great job with makeup her friends all come to her for prom, ect. So she wants to do the make up for glamour shots mostly.

I hear ya on FL being well populated. Maybe its the fact that were all so close together that it seems there are far more creepy people then there really are.

Cant forget all the seniors here from up north grin

I think it could work, but like any business it's all going to depend on how much and how well you market the business. You may want to hire someone, or maybe take some marketing classes yourself to help get you going.

Sounds like you've got a good support network, DeeDee. And I think you'll be much more likely to succeed if the "creepy" portraits are merely one aspect of your photography business.

I envy you Dee Dee. I've always wanted to go into business for myself but haven't found anything that I feel would make it in my area. Good Luck to you. We'll all be pulling or you!

    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
