      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 .

This is not Politically Correct

Recommended Posts

Nice to see someone who can and will say what them mean without worry about political correctness. Rather refreshing.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year cool

EXACTLY

It should be: Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa

Whatever your Faith is. I am not offended when I say Merry Christmas, and someone wishes me Happy Hanukkah.

I do not like it when people are afraid to tick someone off, so they say Happy Holidays! Deal with it - there are a lot of different religions and everyone has the right to worship. In my eyes Jesus is the reason for the Season.

Funny thing is for many years a friend of ours and my hubby and me had what we called Kwanzaa parties at her cabin as the first day of Kwanzaa falls on my wedding anniversary. We were never disrespectful in our celebrations, and I have been to Dr. Maulana Karenga's HSOforum many times and have read a great deal about it. As far as other religious holidays, I am a little vague on those. I say Happy Holidays not to be PC or not to tick anyone off but as a way of wishing happiness and good cheer to all religions and it also encompasses New Years too. Now I want to know who ordered all this SNOW!!!!

I can see your point and I believe in all holidays. But I don't think it's disrespectful to say Merry Christmas. If someone says Happy Hannaka, I don't get offended just because I don't celebrate it. We need to quit being so concerned about what others think. To me and my family it's Christmas, so I say Merry Christmas.

My folks and brother from ND are coming down. Brother heads back after Christmas and my parents usually stay for two or three weeks (Ugggg). But it's good times to get my Dad out fishing and my Mom out to the stores. First year with our eleven year old so I am really excited to see her reaction to presents and everything we do for the season. Going up to my per on Mille Lacs after New Years. Should be a good one.

    • The only thing to use them for, If I had one!  
    • Utube Randy Newberg spring bear hunts. He has a ton of DIY info on spring bear hunting
    • I've never used electric jacks, or hydro. I've heard they are pretty nice, and guys like them. It will be interesting to see how you feel about them after a season or two. I'd like to hear your input on them after you've used them awhile.
    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
