      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 .

Couple environmentals - couple bifs

Recommended Posts

I went out yesterday without the shotgun. I took a neighbor lady hawk hunting. I'm sort of tutoring her in the fine art of nature photography. My photos from her backyard last winter, tempted her enough to buy an XTI and 70-300 IS USM lens. She's having a blast.

The birds were sure skittish yesterday. There was no stalking them. I believe it was due to the wind. When they can't hear much, I believe their sense of sight is relied on more heavily. The kingfishers were quite the challenge. They liked to check us out and tell us off, but they wouldn't land anywhere close.

I really like those environmentals X. Kingfishers are very skittish all the time. I tried on a number of occasions when I lived in Duluth to get close to ones I would come across. Let's just say I still don't have any good kingfisher pictures. The closest I came is when I was sitting in a blind and one landed on top of the blind. Needless to say it's tough to get a shot when the bird is sitting on you.

Those first two are top notch Mike. You have to be careful when getting people into photography. You might lose your great shooting spots! grin
