      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 .

A chance encounter....

Took a drive at lunch today to see what I could see, and found myself face to face with:

Unfortunately, at 50 feet, best I could do at this point was through the windshield. After a few moments he trotted off over a hill and into the woods to my left. I got out of the car and followed, and he humored me by coming back out of the woods and across a small lake at the foot of the hill:

What a neat encounter Ken. I am so jealous that you and Steve get to see all these black wolves. Maybe someday I will get my opportunity to see a black one but until then you and Steve will have to stay on patrol.

Gee, have you got a rabbit's foot in your pocket, with still enough scent to attract wolves? whistle You and steve have sure had some neat wolf encouters lately. It's a nice series, but the second to the last, is so cool. I love the way he's framed by the trees and looking off into the wild. It's a real north country shot. That one would look super on the wall.

BTW, have you ever thought about cutting a hole in your windshield, just large enough for your longest lens? grin

great captures Ken!...Last wolf I had the opportunity of observing was on Hwy 16 near Skibo last summer....trotted out onto the shoulder of the highway with a fresh killed rabbit dangling from it's jaws...took one look at my vehicle and trotted back into the brush....took about 20 seconds....

The first one has the eyes...they draw me right in.
