      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 .

Mississippi kites in Duluth

Recommended Posts

As many of us know, the escarpment above Duluth, coupled with the Big Lake, funnel raptors in spring and fall (especially fall) as they migrate.

Yesterday and today, Mississippi kites were seen from Hawk Ridge above Duluth. Now, those species aren't very common in Duluth, and they are but one of a bunch of raptor species now passing through on migration, which will peak later this month.

Thousands and thousands of raptors course the ridge above Duluth during fall migration, and I recommend anyone who loves birds and loves spectacle and amazing views go to Hawk Ridge this month, where there are expert birders by the score and lots of birding programs going on.

You can simply do a Web search for Hawk Ridge and Duluth and you'll find all you need.

Good luck, and good birding! gringrin

The peak weekend is the 20th/21st, and I'm booked both days that weekend, as well as this coming weekend and the last weekend of September.

When are you going to retire so we can team up on weekdays?

There's a possibility of a cancellation one day the weekend of the 27th/28th, but I know you've got a wedding shoot scheduled for the 27th, so if my gig on the 28th cancels (she's a bit tentative), are you willing or would it be too much too soon?
