      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 .

Golden Retriever?

Recommended Posts

Anybody have a Golden Retriever for a pheasant dog? My wife and daughter are begging for a golden, and I want a field dog. Some people have told me t he golden is a great hunter, others have said they are to docile?

Any thoughts?

Find a field bred golden and you will have a great hunting dog. A few burs, but if they didn't have that they would be perfect.

I dont think a field bred golden is neccessary. Any golden with good hunting lines will do great. I have hunted with goldens who were not field bred, but came from great waterfowling lines, and they were excellent. That is what makes them great, they are versitile! But be sure to purchase your dog from a breeder that actually hunts their dogs avidly! It will be much easier to train them because much of it will be instinctual. Its not always the case when you get a dog who comes from a background of dogs that were strictly house pets, or only hunted once in a while.
