      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 .

Out on the farm!

Recommended Posts

I have been meaning to stop at this farm place for some time and finally did it today. The farm was a place that I worked 20 years ago and I wasn't sure the same person lived there. I was surprised to find that she was and she was very willing to let me have the run of the place. It is literally a treasure chest with barns filled with antiques and old slip rail fencing that I helped build along with abandoned horse equipment.

I plan on bringing her some prints and going out to help her with a little farm work. She said I could come back and photograph anything anytime I wanted so I will be doning that for sure.

Anyways, here's just a few of the results fromm the afternoon.

Great stuff, Mike. I love old farmsteads. There is something simply powerful and so purely Americana about them, and B&W makes it all sing in better tune, IMO.

I like the hanging harness and hanging rockers images the best. I especially like the warm temp of the hanging rockers B&W. A sepia or near-sepia look is a powerful way to render photographs like that. That overlapping fence is crying out for more exploration. Texture, pattern, lighting, mmmmm.

Looks to me like you have a fruitful set of future subjects and a great relationship with the landowner to foster. Good job on both! smilesmile
