      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 .

WHAT WAS THAT??

Recommended Posts

my dogs just lit up outside, to the point where I thought someone was in the driveway.

there was no one out there, so I let them in.

lady was all wound up, with her fur all in a hackle, so I stood outside and listened for a few minutes, then I heard, what ever it was.

a loud, I mean as loud as a deer blowing at twenty yards.

it sounded almost like a bark with a sore throat, but more like a deer blowing...only the sound was a bit shorter and more cut of at the end than a deer blowing.

this went on in series of five to six times at less than two second intervals.

there was about a minute in between bursts.

it was across the road, but seemed to be right behind my mailbox.

after about a dozen rounds, I could tell it was moving off, but then it came back.

I tried to immitate the call back and that threw the thing off a bit, only giving one or two calls per session while I did that, but then it went back to the five or six calls per session.

I think I have ruled out deer. I am leaning to a fox, searching for a seperated pup?

I saw one over there last year while up a tree. the only one I've ever seen while hunting.

I had to google it to be sure. I'll see if I can find the sound somewhere on the net.

thanks!

Fox. The red fox warning bark is kind of a coughing bark as well. You can google it and find sound clips. We have a couple that commonly bark in our yard up in Itasca county. Sound kinda creepy.
