      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 .

I really wanted a better photo of a kingfisher, so I went back yesterday morning with my blind. I knew they couldn't stay away from this snag. It took about a half hour, after I set up the blind, for one to return. I've fullfilled my mission. grin

Congratulations X! Those are really fantastic images. I really like them all but especially the look back Kingfisher and the 3 doves. Great comp on those. I like the way you cropped the KF in the upper corner with looking back into the picture to the lower right. That really is the best way to crop that IMO. The 3 doves are great because of the simitry(sp). You should've had that middle on look at you like the other 2 did. laugh I know you're really good with the trained birds.

Thanks guys, for all the comments. It was a very satisfactory week. I had been wanting a good shot of a hawk and also of a kingfisher, and I got them both. I've heard there is a green heron in the area, so that's next on my list. A guy needs to have goals. grin However, it would be awesome to get a shot of a kingfisher as he hits the water, when fishing. I don't believe I've ever seen one. That's going to be tough. Anyway, on to my next mission.

Nice work! You now have a kingfisher honey hole so to speak. Good shots.
