      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 .

The birds will still be out there, So should you! I love a nice lite rain the birds will hold tighter and not run as much. I think pheas like turkey would prefer to not be in thick grass in the rain.... Maybe willows...under dead falls if available... shelter belts with evergreen trees are huge.. Get out there and have fun...just remember to bring 3-4 pairs of boots and lots of dry socks

If it is not a heavy rain not much will change. jiggin I dont think rain will confuse the dogs at all infact in some cases rain is good as it washes old scent away. I know when my pointer is on point in a decent rain there is almost always a bird there because old scent has been washed away. I would take a little rain over windy and dry from the dog aspect any day. adam

Rain has no effect on the dogs that I have ever noticed. The birds usually hold tighter in the rain which is nice for working with the dogs.

From everything I have seen Saturday should be dry, except for the northern part of the state. Most of pheasant country should be OK.
