      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 .

Cedar waxwings

Recommended Posts

At last light, with the sun a few degrees above the horizon while I was driving back home (and my fingers were like little icicles!), a flock of cedar waxwings landed in a mountain ash tree.

Brrrrrr! I'm still not warm! frown

Thanks, guys. I could barely work the controls, my hands were so cold. Never had to take pictures with the nubs of the stumps of my hands before. At some point I just stuck the sucker up there, said a prayer and let er rip. These are just the ones that jumped out at me among the 300 or so I shot. I'm still trying to get warm. frownfrown

Awesome shots. I like the 3rd shot best. Its tail feathers look almost a transparent blue and you can see its wing through them.

You know there is a Townsend Solitaire wintering in Ely. I bet no one has ever posted a picture of one of them on the forum before...grin

The waxwings don't look cold at all. Warm enough to give you some great poses! Like em' all.

I've heard that from a couple of people who have seen one, and the sightings were about 8 miles apart. Don't know how far they range, but maybe there's more than one!
