      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 .

Pointing Labs

Recommended Posts

For those of you that have pointing labs, can you tell me what you like or dislike about them. I have been thinking about getting one for a while. I love hunting behind my dad's GSP but I would like some of your opinions about your pointing labs.

i have one but she wasnt trained to point or anything she just picked it off from insticnt im guessing. we got her (chocolate lab) when she was about 2 years old from my dads coworker who was moving to town so we took her pheasant hunting a few times and after a while she got used to it then a couple years later she picked up on pointing. i do like it because before she would just flush them but now i have time to get ready when she is on point. dont really have anything to say that is negative about it.

My lab is only 1 1/2 years old, so she really has only had one full season under her belt. She has pointing lab genes and she started pointing toward the end of the season despite not doing anything to actually train her to point.

I basically like the fact that she can do it all. Retrieves, loves water, flushes, points, and is a great family dog. What more could you want.

What I don't like is the cost, but shes worth it.

I Don't have anything negative to say about ours. In fact we liked so much the first time we bought two more this fall one of which started pointing already at about 4 months old. You dont necessarilt have to break the bank on one either the more expensive of the two we only paid $400 and has a 30 month guarantee.
