      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 .

Self Portrait, well kind of.

Recommended Posts

I took this "self portrait back in late October. i want to see if I can get the distance half way right in order to focus the shot. As you can it turned out fairly reasonible considering I took the shot off the tripod and used the timer.

Actual sixe of the walleye....29 inch's....released to thrill someone else, some other time! wink

I did have to crop the photo as it was exactly centered.

Nice fish and picture. I am guessing by the color it's a prairie lake....maybe the Dakota's?

I know how challenging those self-portraits can be...especially in the boat with a little wind! I usually try to shoot towards the transom so that I can use the outboard as a reference. The problem with that is the outboard is in the picture. I like your background better!

Thanks! Actually the location is Traverse Bay, which is located just beyond the mouth of the Winnipeg River.

As for the boat. In my case, the job of seting up a tripod for a self-portrait isn't difficult. My fishing boat is a 24' Tri-toon, very large and very stable. There's enough room to set up a 1/2 dozen tripods! grin
