      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 will be in Destin Florida week of Oct 7-12th. What to look for?

Recommended Posts

Guys I will be spending my honeymoon in Destin Florida the week of October 7-12th. Destin for those of you unfamiliar is on the Norhtern Coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Anyone done any birding here? I know there are some trails around there but not sure what to look for specifically I guess. Any one have any suggestions?

Sorry, Paul, I've birded a number of times along the Gulf Coast of Texas, but not as far east as Florida.

You'll probably by that time be seeing some familiar faces, as the early to mid migrants from our own area already will be showing up there. But of course any coastal/marsh areas should also offer plenty of chances at shorebirds that don't come this far north. Make sure you bring the best birding guide you have, and be ready for anything.

The best images of shorebirds generally are captured with the photographer on his belly. Hope the new Mrs. understands a photographer's priorities. My advice on the birds is shoot first, ask ID questions later! gringrin

We have been on hurricane watch also. Everyone has pretty much just missed Destin/Fort Walton Beach Area. I check with Dee Dee a while back and she is a long way from there after I told here were it was. We wil be spending one day in Mobile Alabama at Mobile Bay then down the coastal highway to Destin/Ft Walton. I am really hoping to get some shots fo Flamingos or something exotic.
