      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 .

Small ponds freezing up this week?

Recommended Posts

Anyone been out this week on small pothole type water say 3-5 ft deep? Hunted a small pond last weekend and there were lots of ducks using the water. Hopefully it did not freeze up and boot the ducks out.

I took my son out of school today for what we thought might be a last day on the ponds. Too prophetic I guess. All the small to medium ponds were locked up west of the cities--Belle Plaine. We tried to break ice but it was at least an inch.

Ended up on the Mn river. Not much going on.

Saw a 50 acre pond that is like 5 feet deep max with an inch of ice on it, and that was in south-central MN. Over the weekend saw a bunch of <100 acre lakes with 1/2".

Nights are getting cold....

Yup, saw one slough open up in a matter of a couple hours....lots of deer hunters out this morning. They are talking about an overnight low of 36 where I'm at...If Friday is the same, things should be open by Saturday, question is, will birds be around?
