      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 .

We've had puppies coming and going here, so he just raises an eyebrow as if, "Geez, another one to annoy me." He was less happy when he realized I was paying attention to the pup. He is so sweet

I see a few new cameras have been announced. Are you getting a new one?

Nope. Can't afford it for the business. If I'd stayed with my full-time job and done photography on the side instead of taking the plunge into photog land full time, I'd probably be picking up the 5D Mk2 for its phenomenal noise performance, but after shooting the original 5D (rented or from CPS) for several weddings, I'll settle for a lightly used 5D as prices come down even more late this year. I expect to be able to pick up a 5D for somewhere around $1,300 after the 5DII actually hits the shelves.

I was amazed at how little noise the 5D had at iso3200 on a properly exposed image, a big deal for indoor weddings and one that would save me plenty of pp time in front of the computer after the shoot. And I do love what the 5D does for the 17-40. Nothing like an ACTUAL 17mm. gringrin

Not that I wouldn't love to equip myself with the 5D Mk2 with the 50D as backup. gringrin

The new cameras just confuse me at this point. I'm happy with my 5D. I'd like faster fps but oh well, can't have it all -- mine only has 7K on it so can't even justify a new camera, plus I'd need a new Mac to handle the file sizes.

Thanks guys,

This puppy has claimed a spot in my heart, that's for sure. He is just so cute, and he's not doing the bloodcurdling screams at night that Milly tortured us with, just a few little whines then he goes to sleep.

Me too, that's one reason for the 5D. I've got an older G4 running OS 10.3.9. New camera means new CS (3 or 4) which means new OS which means new computer. Sigh.

Sweet additional image there, Cheryl. smile

Don't show your wife. The pup was on his way to my brother in law's house but they stopped here first. I was all don't even bring that thing inside, I've just cleaned the floors. That was Friday afternoon.

By Saturday, the pup is up on my couch wearing a new scarf. He is just too cute.
