      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 .

Trail cam help

Recommended Posts

First off, I'm not much of a deer hunter anymore, used to bow hunt but seem to have more time for fall fishing.

I recently had a breakin at a job site trailer. I've bought a trail cam with IR etc. What I need from you is ideas to disguise and protect from theft, the camera. Like a steel box with enough opening to get the pics and long bolts threw a tree nutted inside the box. I dont care if they can jamb a stick in and break it to bits as long as they cant get the SD card.

anyone ever made a contraption like this or have any ideas on this? Pics? Im all ears! I also could use ideas on distances, wind and tree branches,(un needed shots) battery life etc. I've never owned one of these. tips please!

Thanks All !!

Google trail and scouting cameras and you'll find a couple of really good websites that have a ton of info. I've posted the links before but got booted because the sites sell stuff and aren't sponsors.

Another thing that I heard was a good idea is...if they do see that trail camera...Be sure to label the outside steal box or whatever protection box your looking to put it in, Clearly label the box as Camera #2 or Camera #3. Even though you may only have 1 camera. This will get them thinking, that they are being watched by more than 1 camera. And are caught with their hands in the cookie jar. They will most likely leave things alone.

The person that I heard do this...Put his camera in the wide open space to ensure the trespasser seen his camera... then labeled it. It fixed his problems.
