      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!!!

An afternoon on Hecla Is.

Recommended Posts

Hecla Island, is a large island (twenty miles long) located located at the south end of the channel portion of Lake Winnipeg. Well over a century ago it was settled by Icelanders and Scot's, who for the most part made their living commerically fishing walleye and other species abundant in the lake.

These days, there are still some who call the island home and still commercially the rich waters off her shores.. Back in the 70's, it was designated into a Manitoba Provincial Park. These days, thousands of visitors venture onto the island to take in its beautiful surroundings.

Hecla is also a safe heaven for many birds and mammals. From chick-a-dee's to eagles, from moose to flying squirrels, they call Hecla Island home.

I found this capture kind of interesting. Instead of looking out or up at this Bonabarte gull, it was me who had the birds eye view from above, while standing on top of a limestone cliff

looking down.


Back to a more traditional capture, me looking up at this eagle. I'm not sure whether it's an immature bald or if it's a golden?

A beautiful sunset to end a great afternoon visit to Hecla...

Great series, Stu. Looks like quite a place to visit! I particularly like the BIF gull and the fox. Well done!
