      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 .

Deer stand that goes in the V of a tree? Anybody seen one.

Recommended Posts

They stoped making them just wanting to know If you guys have seen this type of stand. It has two metal spikes on each end and those dig into the tree to hold the stand up. It folds up on one end to get in place then fold it out in the V or between two trees.

Yes, it's called a Crotch Stand. I have 3, I think.

I've carried one in my pack when exploring a new area, not really knowing where or if I was going to find something to set up on. Also, sometimes they just work better in some trees when you can't find a good way to hang a regular stand.

A harness is always something that should be used, but DO NOT ever use one of these stands without one. They have come loose on me a few times so I'm finding them hard to trust. Sometimes all it takes is a little wind to sway the tree to loosen them.

I think its best you sit on it rather than stand. Put your feet on something else.

I like em for some purposes, but will only use them now if I have no better option.

I am not familiar with these stands but have used boards to accomplish the same result. I pretty much just wanted to let you know that is the biggest morel I have ever seen! You'd have to serve the steak on the side!
