      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 .

Looks like E.P.P. geese mixed in with the swans, eh Wayne? They usually start flying through "west of Alex" around this time and for the next couple of weeks.

This is the only group of fowl I located this afternoon. I was thinking that there would be more migrators after the high north/northwest winds and snow... but not so much.

Nice shot, I think after yesterday's weather the northerners will be thinking about coming down.

Steve the lens is great. You do need to get a little closer than I had anticipated. And being fat and old is now making that a little more of a challenge. Shooting with a lens is becoming more of a work-out than shooting with a 20ga.

Wayne, just trade it in for Canon's new 800mm f5.6L IS. That'll reach out and touch some waterfowl. Or better yet, shell out $90,000 for Canon's custom made 1200mm f5.6L. Of course you need to buy a jeep with a machine gun mount to use as a tripod for that mother. gringringrin

You could buy a house in our town for that price. Although it is slightly less than a decent used tractor. grin

Steve at your suggestion I tried the Canon custom 1200mm. I had to return it... Even with good duct-tape I could not keep that beast attached to my point & shoot camera.
