      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 .

FlickR?

Recommended Posts

I know many of you guys use Flickr for your image hosting. I have signed up and really like their site and the quality of the uploaded images.

I also have noticed they offer a year subscription for about $24.95 or so. With this you get to upload video also.

My main question is, do any of you pay for Flickr and if so what are the benefits you have found? I know the basic overview of the added features, but I thought I would see if any of you guys have first hand experience with this service before any purchase on part is made. Main thing, is it worth it?

Thanks

For info: On average I upload and share about a 800-1000 images a year.

I have exceeded my limit on Flickr but I don't expect to pay for the extra storage space anytime soon. For you Shack with 800-1000 each year, it might be worth it. I really like flickr though, one of my favorite photo sites.

I guess that is also what I am wondering. Dtro brought it up in another thread in here, but I used to just upload all my images for storage on AOL pictures. I had unlimited storage and just like Dtro said, AOL brought it up when I opened my account about images being lost in a fire (in a box or computer).

I guess I will find out what is the max.

I have uploaded about 2000 images onto to AOL and have a little over 1000 set to public.

I guess if one loaded an account to the maximum storage level, you could just start another new account?

Storage space was a feature I did see and take notice of, but besides video uploading (I do not even know if I can display the video on FM)if their was any other benefits of this service others have noted.

Thanks guys!
