      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 .

Rose Bushes

Recommended Posts

We planted a bunch of rose bushes this past summer. They look great and are still blossoming. Do I need to do anything special to prepare them for the winter or should I leave them alone. I hope to enjoy them again next year.

It depends on the type of roses. If they are not winter tolerant, which most are not, do the following.

Trim them back to six inches above the main stem. Cover the entire plant with dirt. Pile it high over the plant. Do this for each plant. Buy bales of cover straw and mound the straw generously over the mounded rose bushes. You can also use the styrofoam covers. I have had better luck withe straw however.

Roses garden are great to have in the yard but are alot of work.

My grandparents always buried their roses with leaves. They never pruned in the fall. They simply buried all of them in a deep pile of leaves. Worked great. Then in the spring the leaves on the bottom are composted and just leave them.

Rogosa roses are the roses that need care.

With the shrub or pjm roses they are almost winterizing free but it is sugested to mulch the roots heavily,.

With the Ragosa the the idea behind covering is to prevent early budding or sap juices flowing, witch can burst the stem when frozen, by uneven temps. keeping in frozen soil extends past the freeze thaw period.

The hearty roses can tollerate thaw and freeze then thaw, the mulch prevents ground to thaw to early.
