      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 .

Nice!!

My 1-1/2 yr old nephew was introduced to grandpa's boat this weekend. Does he ever LOVE motors. smile Went right for the recoil and tried to pull it over. Could only get the rope out 3" or so but I think he knew what it was for.

Yeah, nothing like starting them out young. My father in law & I have been joking about setting some record for the youngest person to boat a 40" fish. We've even thought of how to rig up a trolling settup for him that will be stationary so he will just have to crank the reel. Also, we were thinking of ways we could ramp up the cranking power on reels so he could bring it in. Longer handle, tweek the gearing ratio, etc. He is my wife & I's first child and I just cant wait till he's old/big enough to be my fishing buddy.

congrats. it's always nice to see the young ones interested in fishing, even if they don't know it yet! My 10 month old loves touching and playing with daddie's rods and reels. Mommy tries to tell him that they're "owies," but I let him play all he wants. I can't help but smile when he crawls over to the rods and reels and wants to play with the reels. With the way he reacts when we take him fishing and gets to see a fish, he's definitely going to be daddie's little fishing buddy!
