      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 .

Sorry it's been awhile. Here are a few that I took while on vacation in Cancun a few weeks ago. Sorry the exif is stripped. The night shots were taken at iso 3200 from a monopod with a Nikon 18-105VR lens with the purple shot taken at 1EV over 3200.

Excellent comps, yakfisher!

I must say I much more enjoy the daylight images than the colorful nighttime lights. Makes it feel more like we could be back there closer to that time.

Thanks for sharing these with those of us who don't travel that much. smilesmile

You sure know how to rub it in! Love the shots. I've been to Tulum but haven't made it to Chichen Itza. All the shots are nice, but I too like the daytime shots!

I've been to Tulum but haven't made it to Chichen Itza.

I've been to Canada but haven't made it to any other foreign country. Well, except the few days I spent in Macon, Georgia. gringringrin

Macon might actually qualify as another planet grin

The trouble with the daytime shots is this; they are extremely hard to get without other tourists. The light show was pretty impressive, it is accompanied with a narrative that talks about the history of the Mayan people. Unfortunately, between taking pictures and my poor spanish, I only understood maybe 10 or 15 percent of the narative.

I would recommend Chichen Itza if you get the chance. It is impressive and awe inspiring!

Wonderful images! We were in Tulum in early December, and my biggest frustration was getting anything without other tourists! We'll have to do Chichen Itza on another trip.

Funny, I'd have sworn we were in the Amazon rain forest looking for some of those orchids last summer! grin

Sorry, Yak, I'll get off this and let discussion go back to your shots. By the way, we had some trouble the day we were at Tulum with people in the way, but I think it was a pretty slow day and I was able to get a few.

I'll add to the list of those who have been to Tulum and points south of that, but not Chichen Itza! I do like the night shots myself especially the first night shot, looks like a great vacation!

We had Tulum on our list of places to go when I was in the Riviera Mya but it rained like h-e-double hockey sticks, all day so we had to cancel that trip. thanks for the pictures to rub in what we missed.

Great shots.

    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
    • maybe a chick.  we had one here for a couple weeks.   
    • Minn Kota  55 Riptide with foot pedal and hand held remote so when you first connect the battery with out the foot pedal connected or any of the control cables connected, the shaft will begin turning to the right. with foot pedal and wireless remote cables connected the unit stops turning but does not respond to the left or right control. It will go forward. it was purchased used and worked fine in April. In July i went to use it and it acted as I described above. I have read several of the forums but did not see the exact same symptoms. help please. thanks in advance    
    • He's that Guy?  The one guy in the world that doesn't like BACON?     May be he's Moslam and can't eat it? 
    • Sounds like someone's talking to much! Lol
    • I'd try those!!  don't save any for Glenn!!!
    • One of these years...
    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks?
