      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 .

What are these?

Recommended Posts

I was walking around the Sax WMA tonight and got these two.

I know this is a wren, but is it a Marsh are a Sedge? I am leaning towards sedge because of the buff under its tail.

I am not sure if there is enough of this bird to identify it.

Thanks Steve. I have an old Peterson's guide and it doesn't give any of the variations, like a juvenile. I think I need to get Sibley's someday. I figured it might be too hard on the sparrow, so many look so much a like.

Jay, I think an experienced sparrow birder could do it based on what's there. The similar sparrow species have long been a weak spot of mine.

Sibley is the best around, and answers lots and lots of my own questions. Well worth the jing for a birder or avian photographer, IMO. And the Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behavior is an excellent companion guide. I believe they are the best one-two punch in birding guides. Great to put on the Christmas gift wish list, too. grin
