      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 .

lake ice ?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, i have been out of the game foe a week and a half now due to getting a hernia patched up! i plan to go out and look around at the lakes today. Wondering how the lakes are holding up to this rain melt? Is it just getting rid of the snow or is the ice taking a beating?

Some of the lakes in the Brainerd area have no snow and standing water on them. I took a quick look on one of them and saw a perm house about flooded out. Around 3 inches of standing water on the ice and it was swirling into any open holes I saw.

I didn't hang around to do anymore than look. I would imagine the thickness is still ok but getting on and off some lakes could get dicey, as well as standing on them without cleats.

Just got back from my ride to look at the lakes around me. Went out on tonka and snorkeld through the ice road! Is the water thats traped on the ice roads really bad for the road or will it be fine once things freeze up again? seams like the ice road is concaved from the weight of the water.
