      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 .

Robins

Recommended Posts

I used to go for years without seeing any robins in the winter, now it seems that they are permanent residents of Minnesota year round....and I see them every winter.

I mean, I seen about a 100 of them in one group, over in N.E. Mpls a couple of weeks ago.

I've seen them all over in St. Paul and today I must have seen 50 in 2 different groups, in two different areas of Mpls.

It seems that we always had a few that lingered, but whole flocks?

Wow! Silly birds. I wonder why there would be so many now. I was sure I saw one today for the Christmas bird count, but I haven't seen one before this for at least three weeks. Maybe overpopulation? More prevalent feeding? We haven't had much snow in the southern half of the state for the past few years, but they might be in for a shock this year.

I watched the robins for a few minutes and they swooped down to a bird bath that had to be frozen, must have been 5-6 sitting around it?

These sure aren't the worm fed fatties of summer, these dudes are all streamlined, look like they have been on the slimfast diet!

Boy, if they have bought into the global warming, they may have jumped the gun picking this winter to stay north!

had about 6-8 robins at my feeding station the last week. I feed it and all the other birds that take them rasins, cranberries, frozen blueberries, and mealworms(and 3 heated birdbaths). About 2-3 weeks ago the last bluebird decided to head south.

We had a robin at my parents house on Christmas Eve. I think with all the crab apples in the neighborhood they will do fine this winter. We are still hoping its a sign of an early spring though...lol
