      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 .

Gray Fox returns for more goodys

Recommended Posts

This fox just can't get enough bird seed or mice and even some cat food. This time I was able to set up my blind and get a few good shots but this guy is tough to shoot because he only has one eye and he is always moving his head to see whats making ANY noise. He really hates loud Harleys and heads right to the woods when they come by.

Jim, I'm happy to see you were ready this time. You nailed "ole one-eye" for sure. gringrin

You also did well to get these as sharp as you were able. I'm looking at exif data and seeing shutter speeds ranging from 1/50 down to 1/15 sec, and at 400mm, even with image stabilization, that's a tough order. Were you handheld or did you shoot from a tripod?

The third one works best for me. Nicely balanced environmental portrait. I like the first one too. Looks like he's dropping you a wink in that one. The eye contact (no pun intended on the singular "eye") on the last one also is great.

At first, I thought he was winking at you. wink You got some nice shots here. I have to agree with Steve, the third one is tops. Everything comes together in that one. I would love to have been there with you. Thanks for sharing the photos of the poor fox.

BTW, I hate the sound of Harley's too. I would have followed him into the woods. grin

#3 is a winner for sure. Wonder how long this guy will be around with a handicap of a missing eye?

Very cool shots, nice to have such a cool visitor. I just saw one of these cross the road last night as I was driving. Cool animal.

Steve the first two shots I took while leaning on a telephone pole and the third I was laying on the ground and the rest I shot with a tripod. Dan the fox will survive a long time as long as I keep feeding him bird seed and cat food grin
