      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 .

On the ground and in the air

Recommended Posts

It was a windy, windy day, but I'd had enough of sorting thousands of images on the computer and getting part way through cutting, splitting and stacking 10 cords of hardwood for this winter's heat.

Yeah, saving $2,000 on the heating bill is a pretty big deal for us, but all work and no play make Jack a VERY dull boy, as one horror novelist once wrote. winkwink

So I chucked it all and headed up the Echo Trail for the afternoon and evening.

I only made two images I liked, largely because of the wind pushing everything around. But I like them pretty good, and hope you enjoy them, too.

Two species of moss, two species of lichen, granite and a dead balsam fir needle cluster, taken 10 minutes into the trip

Canon 5D, Canon 100 macro, iso400, 4 sec at f32, remote shutter release, tripod, mirror lockup


Taken last thing before heading home

5D, Canon 400 f5.6L, Canon 1.4 TC Mk2, manual focus and manual exposure settings, iso400, 1/40 at f8, tripod, remote shutter release, panoramic crop
