      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 .

Will be out to Rib1

Recommended Posts

Hi Jim, I probably won't be able to make it down there tomorrow. I have some work to do in the morning. If I finish up early enough maybe I'll take a ride down. There was a Boreal chickadee spotted today near by ribs1 so you might get lucky and have one show up. If you come up Hwy 53 it might be worth it to take Lake Nichols Rd across to Hwy 7. A great gray owl was spotted there on Friday. Its been a popular road in the past for them as well.

Well, with the word out, looks like I'll be taking most of my S-Z Bog trips on weekdays to avoid the crowds of weekend birders. smilesmile

Good thing no one knows where that other ribs site is, Jonny, or that one would be overrun, too.

I here you Steve!....I met Jim there earlier this morning (pure coincidence really) not much "action" for sure but then again it takes time for it to become "established"...We watched 2 gray jays and that was about it.....Jim continued on to the "weasel Site"...I went back to Hibbing via Hwy #5....Heading to "Carey Lake" in a few minutes to where I through some black oil for the chickadees yesterday....

Thanks for the report, man. I reckon that quiet site will get going pretty good once birds find it. It held a lot of woodpeckers, siskins, redpolls and chickadees last year.

I got there around 8 and set up my blind and was set by 8:15 and sat for a hour and only had a red squirrel. It will get going in due time but ribs 2 had plenty of activity.

Well, ribs2 had a few more days to build activity than ribs1, and I expect that has made the difference. Ribs1 will for sure put out over time, considering all the activity it had last year.

Well, I'm sure there has to be another spot where everyone is wishing you a Happy Birthday but since I ain't finding it, Happy Birthday Steve! You must be what, almost 40? Okay, 35. Maybe go out and celebrate with some ribs tonite! grin

Thanks man! They nailed my birthday over on the photo sharing board.

I actually celebrated all day today in the Bog, partly at ribs2 (boreal chickadees, b-c chickadees, northern shrike, gray jays, common redpolls, downy woodpeckers) and partly along Lake Nichols Road, where jayinMN and I coralled a great gray owl just after sundown.

Yes!
