      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 .

Newcastle disease

Recommended Posts

Here's a copy of an email I just recieved from a professor at U of M Crookston after we went duck banding at Agassiz NWR last week. eek


I just received a somewhat vague report from Agassiz NWR that at least on bird from Agassiz has tested positive for Newcastle Disease. If the bird has it, the water likely contains the virus, which means it is possible that anyone who was on the duck banding trip was exposed to a duck with Newcastle Disease. All future school group duck banding has been canceled as a result. This is not likely to be a large human health concern but is very contagious among birds. Everyone should be aware that the virus could be transmitted on your boots or clothing to another site. If you owned a poultry farm and go home for the weekend; that could be very, very bad. Please take a few moments to disinfect any clothing you had with you on the trip (remember your hat!). I believe that washing in hot, soapy water is sufficient to isolate the virus.

FYI, you may have heard about this on the news as the disease that is killing scores of double-crested cormorants and American white pelicans."
