      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 .

Wild Flowers...

Recommended Posts

Black-Eyed Susan's are dotting the landscape up here at this time. Then again so are many other species.

Sweet shots, Stu! Sure is great to be out among the flowers. Nature photographers who pass up flowers are missing a LOT.

The top flowers are actually wild sunflowers. They bloom in loose clusters at the top of tall leafy stalks, while Susan offer a single or occasionally a double flower at the top of a much shorter stalk. Susan also have very deep brown (almost black) centers.

It looks like the white flower is a yarrow. The leaves aren't right for that, but I think the leaves are from other plants and the yarrow is coming up from underneath. Not quite sure of that, but that flower certainly is yarrowlike.

Sweet stuff, man. Really like that raven, too!

I think you are probably right, B. I'd thought of that, but the flowers just seemed too pale. But I know they fade hard when they age, so I think you got it nailed. The leaves make more sense that way, too.

I'd like to take away my milkweed ID and change it to Red Osier Dogwood. What do you think?
