      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 .

Wax worms turning color?

Recommended Posts

The first time I bought 2 tubs of wax worms this year some of them started to turn gray, I thought they could have gotten a little cold so I dismissed it. Now the next batch of wax worms is also having some of them turning gray, they have been stored around 45-50 degrees. I have kept them for long periods of time without any problems before. I have heard that some of the wax worms have a disease this year, anyone know much about it?

I've heard of the disease story too but don't know anything about it. I would say to warm them up to see if the gray ones are alive. If not, chuck them out. Your temp should be ok but freezing them at all will usually kill them off.

what i have noticed when they start turning gray is that they are dying or dead. Next step is black and totally useless then

Galleria mellonella moth. Yep I got the wrong worms! Bad info. Cant remember the ice worms we raised when I was young? But they turned into a black beetle bout 3/4 - 1 inch long.
