      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 .

Manitou Report

Recommended Posts

Hey Cedarnarrows,

The strecth was froze as well as esox, I don't know how much snow we really have on the lake. Most of it was blown around. I am guess the bays will have some slush but the main parts will be fine. We have had some unreal temps the past few days and it looks like it's going to stay cold for the next week or so.

I can give you a better idea once we get up and check some snow and ice depths. The first trip in won't be until the 29th, I will post how things went when we get back.

Similar - hey this is Hoffer.

We had some e-mails last year regarding Manitou. We are actually coming up to the outpost the day you leave! I would love to be able to touch base with you on the way out if possible? Or maybe you guys could write us a quick note and leave it at the cabin with any advice :-)

my e-mail is: mark.hoffmann@comcast.net

I was just up a few days ago. The conditions were excellent. There was only 4" of snow on the ice and never found any slush. We have had 4-6" of light fluffy snow since, but it is -20 F and doubt ir will cause any slush. I will be back up on the weekend and will post an update.
