      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Wild rice, canoeists, fall color on the Island River (panoramic)

Recommended Posts

Hey all:

This is a stitched panoramic of three images, not a panoramic crop of a single image. The light was so perfect this morning along the Island River where it went under Tomahawk Road near the Pow Wow Trail that when I spotted this pair in a canoe amid the wild rice I had to try it. Because of the distance, a stitched pano seemed right. The light stayed consistent for about 20 seconds before changing, so that was good. grin

It really demands a large presentation, which is why I made it a good bit longer than normal for posting. Depending on your screen size and resolution settings, you may have to pan side to side to see it all.

Thanks guys. X, it's not hard at all. The PhotoStitch software I use (pretty much always just on the automatic settings) came with your 30D, and as long as one is careful to use a tripod, keep it level, use manual exposure settings (so the meter doesn't change exposure as you move from one side to the next of a scene) and overlap the images somewhat, it's not hard.

And it's a lot of fun turning an 8 Mp camera into a 24 or a 32 or, a couple times, a 64 Mp camera! gringrin
