      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 .

Mink pics

Recommended Posts

I came home today and saw a flurry of action behind the house and it was a mink and he had just killed a muskrat. My boy kept the mink away while I got the camera and I got a few pics. All shot with 100-400L at 400mm, f8, and AV mode.

C & C welcome

mink coming back and not sure what to make of the new guy sitting on the grass.

Steve, I know what you say about moving fast, it was hard to try to keep the focus point on him. I also wish I would have had the exposure compensated negative a little as on some closer shots I blew the highlights on some sweat on the tips of his hair pretty bad.

Thanks

Yea, it worked on me, at the speed he was running around he would have been in my lap in a nano second. I made a judgement call that I would just as soon not have that.
