      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 .

No can do this weekend. I will be trying again the weekend of the 11th. Went out Saturday and caught a few in the 18-18.5" range, but nothing bigger...

How about expanding it to include Friday eve? Post the "special word" at 2:00 pm'ish. There's going to be a bunch of guys chucking steel this weekend on the lakes, and I'd prefer to let them have some alone time. (Not really, the honeydo list is piling up, and Friday looks to be my only alone time wink )

I'm ready to go again. More pictures everybody, even if they are ONLY 18 INCHES!!! That is still a nice fish. I like the secret word to validate the fish. I am going to put some tape on my board so you can see the numbers more clearly. Any suggestions on how to calm the fish for the photo? Last week mine kept jumping and flopping to the point I was starting to worry about the health of the fish. Great idea Dietz.

I won't be able to fish this weekend, but if there's another one next weekend I'm in as I have a trip planned. I'd just need someone to call me with the secret word as I'll be away from a computer starting Friday morning. grin

I was planning some fall walleye action but I can always find some time to try to entice a pig Bass.

Great idea Dietz. I did not post any pics last week. I did a few on 15 nd 16 inch fish for practice. Maybe this week I can sneak in the back door with a 18 or 19 incher. However, now that the bar has been set and we are in the fall I would guess a 21 or 22 inch class fish will take the prize.
